With no electricity while we camped, our world narrowed, which made me cherish the simple things. Each evening, after the children fell asleep, I boiled water in the camp stove and sipped herbal tea. I spent time reading and noticed the sun setting and then the moon appearing. I looked forward to climbing into my sleeping bag with my hot water bottle, cosy under warm blankets and lying down next to Miss K as she slept soundly. I looked forward to waking in the morning and seeing the cream canvas of the bell tent moving gently in the breeze, the ambience so pretty.
There's beauty in simple pleasures.
