OK we have now been in the motorhome for nearly a month! Where on earth does the time go? They say “Time flies when you’re enjoying yourself”, well I must be having a ball!!
I was wondering this morning if there is anything I’m missing from living in a ‘real’ house, the answer: nothing is really missing but we do only have three electricity sockets and so as now for example, I have the radio plugged into one, the laptop into another and the mobile Wi-Fi in the third and I’m just thinking a coffee would be nice, so I’m trying to work out what do I unplug and is it worth the hassle? When we have things plugged in there is a spider’s web of wires which are strewn across the van, I know, I know – it’s an accident waiting to happen! (I’m answering my Mum!!, that’s what she’d say if she could see us!)
My Mum passed away about 10 years ago and I often wonder what she would have made of our mad decision to sell up everything and live in a van! I am quite superstitious and believe that my Mum let’s me know she’s around and sends me strength and good thoughts. This manifests itself in the appearance of white feathers. It’s something that I have experienced on so many occasions, far too often to be sheer coincidence. I don’t expect anyone to believe me. However, today was a case in point, we are ever so slightly stressed out (hard to believe isn’t it?), it’s all down to solicitors, I know they have a job to do but we do feel as though we are at their mercy and they seem to be working ever so slowly! Anyway I was sat outside pondering our situation and wondering when things would sort themselves out, I saw a white feather float down out of a tree (in true Forest Gump Style!) and land on the roof of Harry! Less than an hour later we received an email from the solicitor telling us of an advancement … yea thanks Mum, we’re another step closer to leaving and embarking on our adventure. So I guess she’s giving us the thumbs up:)
Yesterday was a ‘wet’ day, but we played cards, mastermind, had a stroll in between the showers, took some photos, and had some friends over for dinner last night. All good fun. Charlie is an incredible dog, even on a wet miserable day, he manages to stay clean and dry!
I have been so busy settling into this way of life that I have put my greeting card business on hold but was delighted to receive an email to say I’d sold one of these, ironic isn’t when you think it’s the opposite of what we’re doing!! If you’d like to check out my greetings cards you can find them by clicking on the card below!
The staff at the campsite are so meticulous everything looks wonderful, they don’t let the grass grow under their feet, they are always ‘doing’ something. On arrival there is a mass of colour from all the flowers, and yesterday I saw these lovely roses, I’ve added a texture of dented copper to them to add a bit of depth. I like the result.
Actually it would make a lovely greeting card. I also have cards and other items for sale at http://www.zazzle.com/photosbymo, feel free to go and have a sneaky peek, you never know you may find just the thing you’re looking for. I may as well do a little bit of advertising after all we have a trip to fund!!
And I think I’ve kept the best photo till last, I really like this one, not sure if you agree, let me know
