tents + lunchbags

after a really terribly-bad week last week, i couldn't wait for cub camp, a whole weekend to run around and act like a kid again (i'm really a responsible leader, honest! haha) and this year i learnt to put up a tent, wow they're really complicated!

some of the highlights of my weekend at cub camp:

sunshine. campfires. the scary cat. lots of sweets. stars. a visit from the tooth fairy. the tyre swing. unbelievably LOUD snoring. s'mores. all nighters. the blinking red light. spongebob squarepants.

after a couple of nights no sleep and lots of sweets, i saw this log and couldn't stop giggling at it because it looks like a mole/badger/elephant, i thought it was the funniest thing i had ever seen! that is what lack of sleep does to you haha!

and of course camping means campfires, which means roasting marshmallows, and then of course you just have to make s'mores (two chocolate digestives and a big ooey-gooey marshmallow squished in the middle) it's seriously the best thing ever!

while i was away camping my mum was busy at the sewing machine. on saturday she went to judiths lunchbag class and made the green-y/yellow-y lunchbag isn't it lovely? then on sunday morning she woke up early and made the red one for me *yay* i think she has definetly been bitten by the sewing bug!
