AND THEY'RE OFF...
The house is in uproar, there is stuff every where, nerves are getting frayed and tempers tetchy.
But we are nearly there, nearly done.
The tents are dusted off, the beach towels packed, nora and the boys all have their new camping P.J's.
And most importantly the sloe gin has been packed and arrangements made with friends who are joining us in a day or two.
Even a long lost cousin has been tracked down through the mists of time and arrangements made to meet up.
The garden and cat sitters primed as to their duties.
The whole Flaming Family is off, off, off, to one of the most amazing campsites on the south coast.
Where we will be spending a few blissful summer days with many many friends, eating, drinking and lazing about.
See you when we get back.
