I wanted to blog last night and again tonight but I’m afraid we are still in limbo and it is beginning to get to us. It’s a terrible thing to be on the verge of exciting things and have to rely on others in order to get there. It’s a little bit like waiting for Christmas as a child, no matter how quickly you want it to arrive, there’s nothing you can do about it, it’ll turn up when it’s time. I am a fatalist and believe things happen, when they happen, for a reason. So I can only be philosophical about it and believe there’s a reason that we aren’t going just yet.
The managers at this campsite have a beautiful white German shepherd called Kye and anyone who knows me, will know that I have a very big, soft-spot, for GSDs. I had one before Charlie called Kyna.
I wanted to thank the managers for having been so understanding about our situation here at the campsite.
The day we arrived, we booked in without a motorhome!
The motorhome was delivered and we knew nothing (and I mean nothing) about motorhoming/camping.
They allowed us to have spare parts/paperwork delivered to this address.
We’ve had workmen come and repair things.
We’ve had workmen come and fit alarms etc.
We had no idea how long we would need to be here and have extended our stay on about 4 occasions, each time they have not only accommodated us but have let us stay on the same pitch which we are more than happy with. They have given us advice, help and many cheery smiles!
In thanks I thought we could buy them some chocolates, (which would most definitely melt in this weather) or flowers that would die, both of which would be over and done with within a week.
The only thing I could think of is my photography! So I arranged to take some photos of their dog last night and have been working on them since, here they are:
The owner did tell me that Kye doesn’t like cameras! What a tinker! He really wasn’t keen on me trying to capture his beauty at all. I always carry a squeaker in my camera bag for such situations and Kye still wasn’t overly keen, so the fact that I got two half-decent captures pleases me immensely! I just hope his owners like them more than a box of chocolates or a bunch of flowers!
The campsite is getting busier and busier as summer kicks in! I find it incredible that we have been here for nearly a month, and law governs that you may not stay on a campsite for more than 28 days! The rule is, you have to leave for a night then you are permitted to return for a further 28 days. It’s probably a way of preventing squatters! (Don’t they know that I’m the Hidden Gypsy?) Well on Monday we shall leave and then return on Tuesday, for how long? who knows? Trust me if was going to be stuck anywhere, this would be it!
Well dear blog readers, I’m sorry this wasn’t a post about travelling, but soon I hope. In the meantime, you will have to put up with the mundane drivel of my very ordinary, daily life.
Take care and have a great (and hopefully sunny) weekend.
