So I am back from the wars and my kids know A LOT of new phrases.

There is so much that they are keen to share with every one of their friends. I bet their parents will be thrilled. They might also know a few songs that they are eager to share. Good thing that Vollsanger’s songbook is online. AHEM.

So we were packing up to leave on a camping LARP holiday from Thursday until Monday. We were shaking, and breathing and nervous. We had a  Defender  loaded to the gills with weapons, armour, and kit. ( Huge Truck? costume? LOTS of costumes? i don’t know how to translate LARP into American.)

We arrived late on Thursday and were greeted by ten-thousand people volunteering to set up our tent and unload our stuff. Amazing. (See here about making friends in the UK. When they love you, they love you. End of.)

The next few days saw us fighting, laughing, loving and in trouble. I think we came down with a severe case of fucking elves. Literally.

Everyone had sore feet. The women (and girls) complained about corsets, the men (and boys) groaned under armour. We all had a lot of work to do, some of us more than others.

THE BEST TIME EVAR was had by all. Can’t wait to do it next year Black Company!
