Getting ready

Getting ready for a nine day trip, not going far but it will be good to get out in the van. Not sure yet but I may have to buy a new motor battery, I will have to see how it goes over the next couple of days.

The van is now over ten, and a few niggly problems are starting to crop up, so at the moment I am putting things right before the trip.

The fridge appears to have packed in but there is no way we can afford a new one, we will have to make do for now. Maybe we will just buy a cheap household fridge, again we will have to see how thing go.

Back to work in the van now.

Not much happening

Well there is not much happening with the van, I did sleep in it on Saturday night as we had too many young girls sleeping over. It was freezing outside but as usual it was nice and warm in he van.

We are however booked away for our birthdays in March, York for mine (as usual) and Barnard Castle for Dot's, a full nine days away from home. Our other usual early trip to Peterborough in April for Amber's birthday is off though, the campsite is fully booked, so we are booked into a hotel instead. For two nights in the hotel in the centre of Peterborough it was only £10 in total more than the campsite, makes me think, is it worth keeping the van.

We have no other plans for the van for the rest of the year as yet.
