A Cornish

A Cornish cuppa

Posted on 12 July 2017

Each of us has our own particular rituals and routines that we play out on arriving at a new campsite. Ours goes like this: I always check-in at reception. My husband parks the campervan while I help by standing behind it shrieking and waving my arms as if he has never parked the van in his life before. He goes to get water then returns to give me a detailed description of the toilet block while I tie up bunting to make the place look pretty… it goes on. The end of this finely tuned setting-up routine is marked by us both sitting down with a mug of tea. I suspect this part of our ritual is shared with many other Club members. The mug of tea is the marker that we have arrived, done the hard work and can now start to relax.
