We collected her Friday afternoon and after a very thorough handover we finally hitched her up ready to go. Yes, she has a gender :)
The handover actually lasted well over an hour so to pass a bit of time Thomas went into role play mode and 'drove' me and him to Blackpool, using the key fob as his radio.
Being a taxi driver is obviously exhausting as after 5 minutes into the real journey he was fast asleep and catching flies.
The caravan site is exactly as I remember it and this was the view from our pitch. We always went to this end of the site so that we could keep an eye on Amy when she was playing in the park. The only difference I could see was the park equipment has been updated and there is a fence around it now.
Thomas didn't feel like socialising this weekend and it was only a couple of hours before we came home that he decided to have a go on the swing. He can be a bit accident prone in the outside world so it really came as no surprise that when he sat on it and leant backwards he fell right off! Didn't stop him having another go though.
So, are you ready for a tour? The caravan is a tale of two halves. This area at the back is perfect for Thomas to sit at and play his Xbox.
While we get to sit at the front or in the awning watching the world go by.
I wouldn't normally show you the inside of my fridge, but the amount of food and frozen stuff you can get in here amazes me. And there is a built in microwave above it.
This is the sink and brewing up area. There is a lift up shelf so that there is more space to work on and there are cupboards and drawers everywhere you look. Whoever designs caravan interiors really puts a lot of thought into it.
There is absolutely no need for daily ablutions to fall by the wayside either, much to Thomas' disgust, showers are available on site or at 'home'.And unless you're particularly partial there doesn't have to be a pot noodle in sight.
We knew we really wouldn't want to come home but of course Thomas has school so after some discussion we came up with a plan which sees myself and Thomas back at Number 38 while Mark and Amy stay on for a few extra days.
I'm quite happy with the arrangement. I'll be caravaning again next weekend which will be here before I know it. Although what's the betting the next 5 days will really drag by now I'm looking forward to something.
Hope you've all enjoyed your weekend.
