LESLEY KEATING: A white-knuckle pursuit ending with a lesson in trust

Have your say

Need to make a few extra bob? What about letting people camp in your garden?

I’m told there’s big demand among those who want to come down to this part of the world for a holiday, or to go to one of the many big events being held over the summer.

Surely it could be a win-win situation. The visitors get some cheap accommodation and you get paid for doing very little except renting out your blades of grass.

I did a quick calculation and reckoned I could squeeze in a good dozen tents. With rates starting at £4 a night, surely that’s a nice little earner in these austere times.

But then my wife pointed out that they would all need to use our bathroom. Can you imagine the queue in the morning?

I’ve just gone off the idea.
