We've been a bit lax on here - sorry!

Alfie has painted the interior and the exterior paint has now arrived!!!

Weather for the weekend looking OK so hopefully the painting will commence!

Well the interior is taking it's millionth coat of white and it is not interesting enough to show anyone.

Of course...... while the painting has been happening Alfie has been being creative.

If you Google "retro caravan holidays" we are number 2 on page 01!

More painting

We've had another day of painting. Looking like it will need at least 4 coats of white but worth doing properly.

Hopefully all the white will be done tomorrow, then it's time for the colour.....

Day one of painting

Slightly worried that this blog is going to be a tad dull. A bit like......

watching paint dry!

OK, day one of painting is over. Spent the day undercoating everything, plus a second coat on a lot of it too.

Looking good!

Painting time!

All cleaned up, sanded down and ready to paint.

I think tomorrow could be a very emulsional day.

The floor is finished (well, not finished)!

Finally finished off the job that Alfie started last week - removing the nasty carpet. It seemed to have been fixed by about a million staples!

Anyway, we now have a nice solid and clean floor which we can put our vinyl flooring on.

Reassuring to see that the floor is in really good, dry condition and it is also very solid.

The cupboards are sanded so waiting for Alfie to tell me what to do next!

Today is Millie day

We've been really busy over the last few days but I'm going to dedicate the bulk of the day to working on Millie. I'll post some pics while I'm at it.

Friday in Shottisham

Had a great night. Good company and a few beers, some wine and some cava.

Absolutely lashed down but Maude stayed dry and it was really nice and snug (apart from my cold nose).

I think we kind of thought this was the last fling of the year but we reckon we can get out again in a couple of weeks.

The 65 kids left (they were dissapointingly quiet).

A wasp nests point of view.

Caravanning in the wind and rain!

Probably our last chance to get out in Maude so we headed out to our secret campsite for the night.

It's bloody pouring down and well windy. We were the only ones here when we popped out to the shops. When we got back in the pitch black we found little Maude surrounded by 65 Duke of Edinburgh Award kids! Rather them than us.

Off to see Jim in the Sorrel Horse for a good few beers! Stay tuned!

We had to drink cava and drink it in Maude.
