I never did understand why on earth people would give up their comforts to go camping and after reading this book Im so glad I never did anything more than the once in a blue moon caravan trip. I was bracing myself as I tried to read this book because after the first chapter I had been wiping tears of laughter from my eyes, dont read this in public, you will get funny looks ! Emma has a fixation about toilet buckets and I can understand why.. my parents had a toilet tent when they bouht their first caravan , wild horses wouldnt drag me in there after my dad had used it it, so a bucket in the corner of the tent must have been hell.

I wont spoil the book for those of you who havent read it yet.. apart from to say I cant sharpen a pencil without sniggering .. cant wait to read the follow up book.

Laughed out loud as this reminded me of childhood camping holidays in the 70s although nowhere near as disasterous.

Such a funny book. Quick and easy read. Even better than the Kennedys TV series she did and I liked that a lot.
