This is my original blog for all our non-caravanning trips since 2009 and more recently posts about coming to terms with being single again having been widowed in 2018. And anything else too really!

My caravanning blog is (Get Your) Legs Down and all our trips in the caravan are there. My grog blog is The Ale Archive where I list every beer I’ve ever tried.

In progress is the loo. A cheap and cheerful cabinet is now on the wall and there is a new blind up at the window. A coat of paint on the walls, bog roll and towel holders to fit, then it’s done.

And that will be it. Nearly….
