When motorhoming do you keep to same standards at home or lower them a tad.
When we were away beginning of June, we saw one lady change into a little black dress for evening dining outside motorhome and at another site a lovely laid table with cloth, real napkins in rings etc., I'm a slob at home, dinner on my lap while watching tele, lager from a tin but must admit to putting it in a glass while sitting outside MH.:D

I always drink my beer straight from the can or bottle.

I am far more scruffy ( and happy) when I am in the motorhome.

We do have a tablecloth but don't faff about with flowers on the table or stuff like that.

I would only be able to keep up Standards if I were able to house the staff whilst away in the van, plus there ain't room in the wardrobe my dinner jacket as well as her posh frocks.

'Wine from a fluted glass'?

That's for one's Champagne Mo! Not wine, heathen!

Wine should be drunk from a box........which should be attached to the head board of one's bed, thus negating the need for a glass, of any description.

Saves on washing up, and when one becomes comatose, it save the need to get into bed! You already there!

Simple !

People are very different. My late MIL's neighbour always used to cut his front lawn wearing a tie. When I served in Belize I joined the rabble, mostly consisting of RAF it must be said who didn't wear a tie in the evening. The 'proper' people wore planter's order, ie shirt and tie. This in 90%+ humidity.
If we raise our standards when away in the MH it is in the direction of relaxation, such as lighting a candle in the awning and perhaps listening to some music. Couldn't care less about what anyone wears but there are those who do.

In NZ just down the road from us, a fella would mow his lawn, using a push mower, wearing a tie, waistcoat, and puffing a pipe.

I have noticed that the French often have tablecloths and linger over their meals for hours . I have yet to see anyone in a little black dress ! When it gets darker in the evenings we often have a candle on the table . As for what we wear....our best trackies of course .

I have seen Landlords dogs peeing up crates of bottled beer in pub back yards....a glass for me every time. BUSBY:D
