I've been feeling a little sad recently - it's June and I used to try and get a few days off at this time of year.
I was a late convert to camping and I'd expected to have some exciting trips to faraway places in my retirement. I'm not up to that anymore.
Anyway, I thought I'd fire up my kettle one last time.
What do you need to brew up a cup of coffee?
Some sticks, some newspaper and a mug of Coffee, of course.
I have a 'Rocket kettle', a fabulous invention which you can use to make Tea or Coffee in the wildest place as long as you have some dry twigs or cardboard or paper.
I set it up in the front garden, one last time.
You fill the kettle with water, then make a pile of twigs in the central chimney......and set fire to them.
That's going well.
It builds up a furious fire (if you're lucky) because of the chimney effect.
If you look carefully, you can see my Coffee steaming.
As I said, Robyn was unimpressed. I'm guessing the passers by were puzzled too but I needed to get that out of my system, one last time.
