April 2012

I’m not really a “happy camper” sort of girl…

I mean, I love getting stuck into my garden, or exploring the nature of a new country – I just prefer to do it in the knowledge that my hair straighteners, a hot shower and preferably a pina colada are waiting for me back at my hotel room.

That and the fact I’m fucking terrified of spiders.

So in a desperate attempt to become more “outdoorsy” before I go camping in Cornwall with Pitchup in Summer, I made a flying visit to the Lake district to get closer to nature…

Anyway, as I was wandering around Ambleside…

(that sentence has started “The Wombles of Wimbledon” off playing in my head. Excellent.)

Sorry, as I was saying… I was mooching around when I came across a gorgeous gypsy caravan… 

For all I know the occupants could have been that prick from My Big Fat Gypsy Weddings, or some one of the show’s stars getting ready to “grab” me… but, what a beautiful sight in such a quaint little town!

Until this happened…

Yes, that is a traffic warden… giving a horse a ticket!

Talk about ruining someone’s day!
