When life gives you lemons, made lemonade, or so the saying goes. Well, I don't know about lemonade, but I've always found lemons to be a useful little extra in gin and tonic.
It was a good job, therefore, that we had a camping trip booked for the weekend after my redundancy bombshell.
Say what you like about camping, but it's certainly a fabulous way to forget about the stresses and strains of everyday life and be a bit more primal...
After all, how could a view like this not lift the spirits?:
...plus eating (and drinking!) too much is one of my favourite pastimes...
...and I defy anyone to not feel warm and cosy by a campfire.
So, sometimes, you just need to remember that a sunset may mean the end of one day, it also means there's a new dawn around the corner.
