Join the ‘Christmas Club’ for some festive fun!

Molly & Ted snowHaving survived the crackles and bangs of Bonfire Night, Ted and I are now counting down to Christmas.

The housemaid has been digging in her wardrobe, looking for gifts she squirreled away in January, and I sniffed out a couple of Christmas stockings stuffed with dog treats that she hastily hid from my sight. Ah, but she can’t hide things from my inquisitive nose!

So what will you be during over the festive period? I don’t think that the fun we had in our tent in balmy early September would translate very well into a December break - but if you have a good winterised ‘van or motorhome, there’s lots of enjoyment to be had over the winter. I can just imagine the delicious smell of turkey roasting in our motorhome oven.

Floating in a sleeping bag

Luis Brown from Nikwax floats in a sleeping bag on Bewl Water

It's not a sight you see every day, but yesterday I watched a man floating around on a reservoir for about 15 minutes – in a sleeping bag.

No boat. No canoe. No raft of any kind. Just a sleeping bag.

Nikwax had invited journalists and trade representatives to its base in Wadhurst, East Sussex to demonstrate the properties of its hydrophobic down fill, specially treated to be much more water-resistant than untreated counterparts - 13 times more to be precise.

The best of British (beaches… and bacon!)

MollyFiley

Some of my favourite moments this year have involved tucking into a delicious hot breakfast by the sea. What could be nicer? So I’ve looked back over our photos to find my best bacon and beach bits of 2014.

And my carefully considered judgement is that the winner of Great British Bacon and Beach is - Filey!
