A Sneaky Peek!

Now she's far from finished,
but I thought you'd all like a sneaky peek
in through Sindy Caravan's window.

She's my excuse for recent absence from Blogsville of late.

My little sewing machine is working overtime in the evenings,
and I even enlisted the help of the gruesome twosome
when making all those bunting triangles.

We've planned lots of adventures in our heads,
usually involving the capture of poor little sea creatures
in rockpools or on crabbing lines,
being on boats and climbing trees.
I told them how you can make dams across
streams and rivers and
how jam butties are the best picnic food ever!

Oh I just can't WAIT!

Especially as my car now has a little extra
thing fitted on the to the rear...
(this was the only photo I could find that
didn't resemble a phallic symbol! ;o)

To say I'm a little bit terrified of towing her
would be an understatment of words!!!

I'm sure I'll master it soon enough.

Next time you listen to the traffic lady on radio2
lets hope that she doesn't have to report that
the M6 is shut due to a mad woman
and an overly bunted caravan eh?!

Love C. x

I hope you have a wonderful time. We've had a caravan for 21 years now, and when the children were small it was magical! We have wonderful memories. I've towed, you'll get used to it!

Wondered what you'd been up too!
I'm so excited for you..what great adventures you're going to have with Sindy.Maybe you could have some practice runs,towing in quiet areas before you tackle the M6.
Looking forward to more 'interior' pics! :0)

Dreadnought said...

Oh what fun! I'm so jealous! I hope you don't mind me asking but are you going to take your caravan out without a man accompanying you? I know that sounds so old fashioned but I'd love a Caravan, but think I'd struggle to manage it with just me and Little J. Let me know what you think. I could get a really, really tiny one! xxxx

jackanne said...
