JusJoJan 2023: day 27

Linda is our host and Kim has supplied us with AMENITIES as our prompt today.
I cannot pee in a field.
It’s a given, going back over 60 years when I had to and ended up with a wet skirt. Thank goodness it wasn’t anything else.
When Hubby announces we are going camping, I’m keen enough, but insist on going to a site that has a flush loo.
He found that amusing saying that half the fun was living rough. I said I didn’t mind  sleeping in a tent on hard ground, cooking on a single burner (I hate him, as he cooked a proper breakfast of bacon and eggs with a cup of tea all on the one burner and everything was hot, whereas the hottest thing of my effort was the tea), and doing without the TV or radio, but if I couldn’t have a flush loo, I wouldn’t go (excuse pun).
So, whenever we went camping, he would always check out the amenities, priority being a flush loo, even if it wasn’t in a shower block! We had some fun times.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Well, I didn’t get a wet skirt, I got dropped on my be-hind by my worthless sister. I held her up, I don’t understand why she had to try to answer a text in the two minutes I had to pee.

  4. I’m with you, Di! It’s the bugs I’m most afraid of. *shudders*

    Neither Mary nor I are into camping, for exactly the reasons you state.

    I was never a fan of camping – and I have a curse. If I ever lower my pants a crowd immediately appears – even if I’m on an uninhabited island!! (true story! and it was a whole Boy Scout troop! )

    There is a 120 year old park not far from where I live. It’s mostly full of colourful plants and various trees as well as a bandstand and fountains. The latest amenities are a cafe hut and new wooden benches. It’s council run and has been well looked after throughout the years.

    • I remember the park and bandstand in the Bournemouth Gardens. It was lovely to grab a deck chair and sit and listen to the band on a Sunday afternoon. There was a small stream too which was safe for kids to paddle in. Happy days and memories.
