My big fat gypsy birthday

This year I was a bit like the queen and had two birthday celebrations.  My actual birthday was spent with family as you saw in my post a couple of days ago.  But the weekend before Dave and I escaped to Herefordshire and had a little birthday celebration there.

Wanna see where we stayed?  You are really gonna love it.
We had this amazing gypsy van for the night.
Anyone in the UK looking at this and thinking they recognise it, well it was featured on the TV programme Three in a Bed earlier this year.  We made our booking before we knew it was going on TV, and didn't see the program before we went, I wanted the experience to be my own and not coloured by the thoughts and experience of others.  And I have to say I LOVED IT.
I mean how could you not adore spending the night in this.
Morris wasn't too keen though.  After taking ourselves on a 12 mile walk round the Wye Valley we were hungry enough to eat ... well ...a moose!
We did get the fire going, but we made sure that Morris was freed from the pot.
We had the most amazing evening in our little camp with celebratory drinks....
.... and plenty of birthday cake.
We stayed out in the candle light until well after dark

enjoying the last of the heat from the fire
and snuggling up on this hammock made just for two.  Loved every minute of our stay and will try and make sure we get back there next year.
