Well, well, well. What can I say. That was surely a week and a bit!
Grab a cup of tea or coffee and your favourite biscuit and let me tell you all about it.
Ok, the week kicked off with me finishing the packing and getting the furniture taken away (and revealing GIANT cobwebs!)
So I added a long vacuuming session to the list of things to do (in a very short space of time).
It was then time to meet the newly revamped Maisy the motor home at the Create and Craft Studios. She’d had a full on makeover!
*wolf whistles* What a cutie?!
Also, *tuts*, typically raining when she’s all dolled up, right? Hehe, anyway, keys in my sweaty mitts, I approached.
Now, this was the first time that I had driven her too – so that was not at all nerve wracking doing it in a car park full of cars!
Luckily the team at Create and Craft had cordoned off an exclusion zone. Phew!
The official send off was a ballon and speech filled affair.
Oddly, I was doing things slightly back to front. I had yet to pack my worldly goods into Maisy so I took the lady home and began grabbing many of the boxes that I had been shovelling things into over the weekend and starting cramming them into all available spaces.
Eek! Now, believe it or not there was some form of organization amongst this lot. No, there really was! Lol ;)
Bits and pieces packed (although some missing – more on that later).
I then decided to take the old gal out on the open road for a test drive so I decided to go and do a shopping run and get some foody supplies. Arriving unscathed I practiced parking …
Nailed it! Lol! Notice how I chose the most vacant area? Wise choice and I only used the two parking spaces. :)
Spending one more night in Peterborough I actually set off on Wednesday and had a right old jaunt, working my way down to Surrey.
Now, any sensible person would have learned how to use things like the heating, water pumps etc before setting off. Not me! Lol.
As many of you will have seen on Facebook, I learned that mistake while the night time temperature was nudging zero – and I forgot the duvets! *slaps forehead*.
Anyway, long story short. Thank heavens for warm 24 hour service stations!
So, crazy week was going to be followed by three days in Surrey – pop back on Monday and I’ll let you know how that went…
