Cry Like A Baby Camping Disaster !

Went to Donington for the weekend.

On the last day, instead of missing the races to wash-up the dirty plates we put them in a black bag (wifes idea) to bring home to wash. Went to work Monday, came home late, wife asks me to put the rubbish out as it was bin day Tuesday.

Wife just phoned me to see where the bag was ?

Guess who put the bag of camping gear out without thinking !!!!!

Full cutlery set, Melamine plates, bowls and mugs, BBQ tongs & spatula & full set of frying pans and saucepans. GONE !!!

"Now is the winter of our discount tent"

Not many people know that William Shakespeare and Anne Hathaway were keen campers.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BREXTON-PICNIC...QQcmdZViewItem

no need to put in a bin bag when your done, just pop them striaght into the vintage carrier box.

i wonder if your bin man has just taken up camping ?

bad luck Howell118

End of season sale :

Full melamine set c/w cutlery £ 5.00 Halfords
BBQ Tools £ 3.46 Tesco

Not so bad, £ 8.46 saves the washing up.
