It’s not working.
I already want to find a way to stay in a nearby B&B, Travel Lodge or house. Buying the tent was a mistake.
The problem is twofold. Firstly I really, despite appearances, don’t want to be a moany git. Secondly, I have promised another great friend that I would be there, in the field, in a tent. That produces guilt-like feelings when I plan my escape. Curses!
Going to have another try at buckling down and dealing with this.
