Camaraderie

Today I want to write about the hope that comes from camaraderie. This is an interesting word and means: ‘mutual trust and friendship among people who spend a lot of time together’.

I like the idea of camaraderie because I think it is a collective experience. I remember as a young woman, going on holiday with family friends. On the last day of one holiday, everyone jumped in the pool fully clothed. We had lots of camaraderie; eating cheese, drinking wine, lots of trips, crazy horse riding sessions and bucket loads of fun.

But can we do that with Covid? Yes we can. We can do lots of lovely outdoor things, like camping, glamping, walking, cycling and various other things.

And one lovely idea is sitting round a fire pit. This is a lovely aspect of camping. Chatting over toasted marshmallows. And lovely food. One thing I think is wonderful is wood fire ovens. And this is a shout out to Kennedy fire, who are a family business who make these and they are simply fabulous (I have had cinnamon buns baked in one of these ovens).

So today’s recipe of hope is to cook up some camaraderie; arrange a camping trip, sit in a garden with a friend and a glass of wine, arrange to go cycling or walking with someone. Let’s enjoy sharing quality time together. And please let me know how you get on.

Happy camaraderie everybody X
