A FAMILY are spending a weekend camping in order to really appreciate their three bedroom house.
The Logans are spending three nights in a field near Delamere Forest, during which they will sleep on the cold ground, trudge across wet fields to a barbaric communal lavatory, and eat beans from a pan like refugees from a zombie apocalypse.
Tom Logan said: “Our home is rather nondescript and we can take it for granted or even resent its ordinariness. But it does have clean water, electricity and a toilet that wasn’t designed for animals.
“So every year we spend three days living inside what is essentially a plastic bag while trying not to go to the toilet so that when we come home our house seems like the Dorchester Hotel.”
Daughter Jenna Logan, aged 13, said: “It really makes you think of how refugees must be suffering and makes you glad you are not them.
“That’s it. That’s as much as I got from it.”
