Eh guess what?!
It'll be Christmas at this rate!
The year is whizzing by
so fast, I've hardly said a word to you all
in ages, but I'm sure you'll forgive me.
Lots of folk start booking or at least thinking
of holidays at this time of year,
and I'm no exception.
So, after lots of longing,
and Ahhhing, I decided to take the plunge!
I hear you cry.
Well if I said I'd bought one of these...
...would you believe me??!
Well I have!
Only a little bit bigger, but not much.
Please excuse the photographs of her,
this was the day she arrived and
it was about -70 degrees and she'd
literally just been dumped on the drive.
After lots of longing and wanting of
a vintage caravan, I had a long hard think about
my situation. Could I realistically restore and maintain
the little gems I've seen on here.
The answer, unfortunately, was no, I couldn't.
Plus the prices for fully restored beautys are creeping
upwards these days.
So that brought me to a very cold day and the boys
and I are viewing 'Sindy'.
Well we had a fantastic time, we made
the tables into beds and back again,
And we cooked imaginary food,
in imaginary pots and pans from the
cupboard, and helped ourselves to
invisable food from the fridge.
After her safety check and delivery
(I don't even have a tow bar fitted!)
I gathered all the seat cushions up
and brought them inside the house.
After a little make over with some muchas cheapas
fabric and a few Ebay bargains
I can start to picture us off on our holidays in her.
Did you spot that gorgeous CK cowboy fabric?!
I think Sindy will look every bit a 'Cool Caravan'
by the time I've finished with her.
I hope you'll enjoy the journey
from this to, eventually,
that fun packed Summer that I mentioned
in my last post.
Stay with us for the ride why don't you?
You'll be most welcome.
Love Claire. x
P.S. I hope you recognised me,
a bit of redecoration has been going on here.
