Peterborough Day Two

Walked over to reception and bought a £5.00 WiFi card, this let me have 5 hours on the internet and unused time can be carried over for up to 6 months. Also got the Sat working for the girls to watch the cartoon networks.

Made a picnic and set of to walk round one of the lakes at Ferry Meadows Country Park just outside the campsite. Georgia and Emily went on their bikes and Amber walked with us, she did have her scooter with her but she wanted to walk. Young Ralph phoned to say he would meet up with us along the way.


We picked one of the smaller lakes to walk round, Amber only has little legs. As soon as we set off they all wanted their picnic but it was half way round before we gave in a let them eat.

After eating the girls spotted the mini train and wanted a ride, so Dot took them on a return trip while I sat in the sun and waited for them.

Ralph phoned to say he as on the way and he arrived not long after the girls got back, It was very warm so we all went for refreshments. Ralph and I had a beer and the girls all had ice creams of some kind.

Later, back at the van we had a BBQ, then watched a film before bed

Peterborough Day One

Booked into the campsite with the twins and then headed off to pick up Amber for a couple of days.

After a BBQ at Amber's we arrived back at the campsite too late to mess about with satellite dishes and stuff so we just watched a film before bed.

Four days down south

Just had four day away in the van, our annual trip to Ferry Meadows in Peterborough for Amber's birthday.

The cost for the four days came to about £230 (site frees and fuel), the week previous we had been to Spain by coach for seven nights for £284. Using the van is getting to be very expensive especially using Caravan Club sites, I am seriously thinking that I will not renew my subscription next time it is due.
