View down to the farm and campsite by the Long Mynd

(... and you should see him when he's pulling a funny face :0)
One couple turned up with a fab dogga called Ben, who I befriended straight away.
He's an incredibly intelligent and playful hound.
As well as Dean's camper van blowing up on the way there, we spotted this screw that Andy had acquired along the way too!!! Luckily it still got us there and back OK.
The loos on this site are something 'special'.
If you think the outside looks bad, you wanna try inside!
Ben shaking-a-paw with my niece Amy
My nephew Luke whittling sticks for marshmallow toasting later
The scenery round the campsite is lovely and typically British
In the afternoon we all played cricket... Well sort of cricket, but more like "Whack the ball as hard as you can and try not to get caught out!"
Ben was the best fielder and brought the ball back to the bowler if no one caught it
To use the phone, a small trek up this steep track was needed to find signal, but the views from the top were good
A new filter to play with on my new camera :)
Sheep against sunset
Next was food, followed by beer, cocktails, beer, more beer...
...Which lead to this cool shot of Ben :0)
There was a large mix up with whether we were or were not allowed to have a fire which led to the farmer coming over and giving us all a good rollocking and demanding we put it out. He even threatened to fine us £20 (Appox. 70p each) and that the 'Shropshire Star' would hear about this... The Shropshire what?
We sorted it all out and could light the somewhat now damp fire again, which was nothing a pint of petrol from Deane's van and a blowtorch held at arms length didn't sort out! WHOOOSH
The dog knew were to come and sit to get fussed and he became my personal hand warmer for the evening in return :]

Today, I'm Most Angry About: Having an unusually large craving for a packet of 'Nice 'n Spicy' flavour Nik Naks and then not being able to obtain any despite going to two garages and two shops... Grrr :[

Today's Top Tip: Dog Owners: If your dog accidentally fouls the footpath, remember this carries a big fine, quickly drop your trousers and tell passers-by you were 'caught short'
