So last week me and my boyfriend decided we were going to attempt camping together seeing as the weather has been so lovely and neither of us can afford a proper holiday this year so we borrowed a tent and all the camping gear from my aunt and on Sunday morning off we went.
We surprisingly managed to get the tent up in about 25 minutes considering how windy it was! then we just spent the rest of the day setting up bits and sunbathing really then had a really nice dinner.
Me and Nels (boyfriend) were commenting on how neither of us were getting a tan as we were laying there, I was applying suntan lotion but normally you can see if you are catching the sun, we went to go get some fish and chips (classic seaside lunch) and as I stepped into the shop out of the sun i looked at myself and i was practically glowing!! i was so burnt it was unbelievable i moved my bikini strap and it looked like it was still there! we spent a bit longer at the beach after having a nice swim in the sea ( to Nelsen's dismay) we headed back to the tent.
I opened the cool box to put in the stuff we had bought for a bbq that night picked up the pot of butter from breakfast and it basically exploded, it was completely liquid where the tent had gotten so hot!! it was horrendous, melted butter is not the easiest thing to clean everything was slipping out of my hand it was like a cartoon comedy sketch with a bar of soap in the bath!!
After that drama and after a traumatically hot shower adding the the heat from the sunburn we had a lovely bbq and watched the sunset with our campfire blazing.
Slightly stressful but the good outweighed the bad, brilliant memories and what I'm hoping will turn into a good suntan to stay with me.
