The Tent, the Bucket and Me by Emma Kennedy

Growing up in the Seventies, we were on the brink of the modern age. But despite a brave new world of Casio hand-held calculators and digital watches, one thing remained the same: the family holiday. For the Seventies child, summer holidays didnt mean the joy of CentreParcs or the sophistication of a Tuscan villa. They meant being crammed into a car with Grandma and heading to the coast. With just a tent for a home and a bucket for the necessities, we would set off on new adventures each year stoically resolving to enjoy ourselves.

For Emma Kennedy, and her mum and dad, disaster always came along for the ride no matter where they went. Whether it was swept away by a force ten gale on the Welsh coast or suffering copious amounts of food poisoning on a brave trip to the south of France, family holidays always
left them battered and bruised.

But they never gave up. Emmas memoir, The Tent, the Bucket and Me,
is a painfully funny reminder of just what it was like to spend your summer holidays cold, damp but with sand between your toes.

But they never gave up. Emma's memoir, The Tent, The Bucket and Me , is a painfully funny reminder of just what it was like to spend your summer holidays cold, damp but with sand between your toes.

No catches, no fine print just unadulterated book loving, with your favourite books saved to your own digital bookshelf. None of the luxury of a five star hotel abroad with sweltering sun all holiday long. There were points when I was literally laughing and crying at the same time. A memoir of one family's disastrous attempts to go camping in the Seventies, which makes it sound not nearly as funny and fantastic as it is. Lots of sweet and sour humour surrounding brits abroad, near death experiences and endless wince-making tent and toilet mishaps.
