A few weeks back there was a C&CC Temporary Holiday Site set up just as the towns flood barriers were erected. The field became extremely boggy. Today as the heavens opened I notice that a THS has just commenced. And the ground still has high ground water table with ditches still holding water from the last wet period. Still I understand the east areas may becseeeing snow.
Just goes to show what hardy souls caravanners (and motorhomers) really are.
Guess I will just have to settle down with a cup of tea and read my latest CMHC magazine showing sunny UK:)

Your tea should still be hot by the time you have finished reading it. You might even manage the latest C&CC mag as well :p

Parksy,
that ones already in the bag, as is the C&CC one too. Any further deterioration in the weather forecast and I may have to make a start on redecorating the hall,stairs and landing. Last done around 25 years ago. Thats a measure of my desperation, but my wife would be chuffed to bits.

Well know fact that I seem to carry rain or inclement wherever I go. I was working in Oz for three months in Canberra and managed a weekend off in Sydney. Well there was fog and mist all around Sydney and the ferry to Manley was rolling akin to something approaching a tug boat off Dogger Bank. And that was February, ie summer in Oz. So steer clear of booking any sites where I might venture to. Dusty can confirm that before we rolled up in Shropshire he was in shorts and tee shirt. Afterwards it was fog/rain for four of our five days. :evil:

Just the hall stairs and landing, then the Kitchen, and the back room, then I can get a Motor bike, but the Boss will probably want the upstairs rooms done again. , before that. Lets just get away in the van.

Please do not mention that word decorating or you might give my wife ideas. I can manage most rooms but I am not prepared to hang from ladders on the stairs.

Profuse apologies but I’ve stripped the hall already. From memory one drop took a whole roll of paper when I last did it. But from memory can’t remember how I accessed it. Must have used my old planks which were thrown out years ago thinking we will move before I have to do the stairs again!

Experiment with the links Craig, as you look to be using your phone it may be different.
Might be a good idea if you try in the photography section, otherwise this could go too far off topic!!!
