Remote preparations

Today was designated by Keith as 'get the caravan ready' day. The lack of rain, slightly raised temperatures and even the odd day of sunshine has put him in holiday mode and we are looking forward to making good use of the caravan this spring and summer. We only bought it at the end of last summer, so didn't get more than a few outings in it, but enjoyed our brief forays into 'wild Wales'.
So Keith has checked all the testical technical stuff and I have done the 'wimmin' stuff, like cleaning.
Paddy? Well, Paddy seemed to think that if he sat firmly in the caravan for as long as it took, it would eventually get moving and take him on his first break of the year. When that failed, he tried a bit of whining and looking dejected too.
Wagons roll!  Well, soon, anyway.

  2. Last year we had weekends over on the coast, last minute arrangements really, but it worked for us.

  5. I agree with YP about your new theme -- very verdant!

    Mrs P's first caravan weekend of the year came up in conversation today. She goes away with her sister and two friends several times during the summer.

    And it is also in Wales, but their caravan stays put all year round!

  7. Well, SP, I notice you didn't say that you go too so I am guessing it's a 'ladies only' weekend? :)

    Flighty, I think you could be right. He certainly loves being away - gets very excited when we're out and about.
