Camping in the kitchen.
The wattles along Dandenong Creek are blooming, so too the cherry blossoms along nearby streets. According to the calendar, it’s not yet Spring but flowers and trees have their own, more flexible, calendars. Ben’s camping gear has been packed away for over a year and it’s time to air out the two sleeping bags and the small tent. (The large tent is still in Tassie). Of course, once you put up a tent, it’s hard to resist the urge to get in it. This is advertised as a two-person tent but I think two would be uncomfortably cosy. At full stretch, Ben doesn’t quite fit and has to lie down diagonally, corner to corner. We don’t have any plans to travel, although we do talk about places like Tasmania, Berlin and Benalla quite often. For now, the tent’s just getting some air in the kitchen.
