Did He Just Give The Horse A Ticket?

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!

Don’t worry, I doubt the horse ever pays it.

Oh Gosh!!! That poor horsey. I love the Lake District… I fell in one of the lakes once, not my finest moment! I have seen one of these caravans set up as a wendy house in a garden. How cool is that?! I am totally doing that one day!

Love Elle xo

Haha, I’d love to hear about the time you fell in the lakes Elle! The Wendy House idea is so cute! Loads of people have done that with their beach huts in Brighton – I definitely want to do it one day too! xx
