Back home, have worked out an easier method of putting the tent up, we follow all the instructions next time. Tent came down, went away dry and fitted back into the bag without any problems. Canvas is now back under the bed. Camping stuff is almost completely packed away and clean. This is a record. Good weekend.... must do again. Can survive camping providing I have somewhere to hide at times.
Oh and thanks to the wonderful person who took the bullet for me :)
