Following on from my last post, I have been thinking about what I would least like to give up. My first thought was reading and books but then I realised that in a home with no conveniences I was unlikely to have time or light to read. Neither would I have been to school probably.
We’ve all been camping at some point, so I started to remember the rainy holidays under canvas in Wales, Devon, Yorkshire etc. Cooking on a Primus stove was doable for a while, likewise washing pots in a bowl on the ground. The worst thing was needing the loo in the night and having to get out of a cosy sleeping bag, find a torch and walk across a dark campsite to the toilet block. The alternative of using a potty was never an option, just the thought of it makes me feel queasy. So indoor plumbing is what I would least like to give up.
What’s your choice?
