Happy New Year!

My head hurts! But self-inflicted as we spent New Year's Eve with friends of ours down in Bournemouth. A good night was had by all, with plenty of drink and food available.

Woke this morning feeling a little groggy, after not sleeping that well as it was strange being back in Suburbia with light pollution, sirens and general hum drum of living in a built up area. I even thought there was a light on outside, but it was just the street lights! It's amazing how used to get to having the total peace and quiet of living in a field!

We had tea and toast and made our way back to our caravan, home, and it feels good! 

As we are sat in our caravan watching the other campers pack up, its pouring with rain, and we both feel very smug as we sit here with our cuppa's knowing we are staying!

The site is getting a bit churned up with the others attempting to get their units out through the mud! So far they have managed to do it as one of them has a 4x4. They wouldn't of done it with out it.

I was primed to lend a hand but they seem to have it all under control so I'm staying put in the dry!

It's always difficult to know what to do, do you offer to help or not, as some people don't like help. At the vintage rally's everyone pitches in and helps, you don't have to ask, several pair's of hands just turn up!

So what will 2012 bring us? More money for a start, as a new job awaits me! So that will make life so much easier.

Not sure how many vintage shows we will do this year, as I've know idea what hours I'll be working so we will have to play that a bit by ear. It will also be nice to have paid holiday! After being self-employed for 11 years that will be a novelty.

Hopefully having paid holiday will mean we can actually take a couple of weeks off and head off somewhere with caravan attached! Lots of places we would like to go and spend some time in.

I can feel it's going to be a good year!

Hope you all have a great 2012, as I keep having to remind myself, life is what you make it, so make it good!

Till later................


  1. enjoy reading your blogs! keep it up & happy new year!

  2. Best luck with the bus job. Sounds like a fun job and the sort of job you could probably get loads of overtime out of. Wont be long at all before you are back on your feet again. I opened a savings account when I went full-time and put 30 percent of what I earn in it every week. Soon adds up.

  3. Saving is one of the things I really want to do this year, as so far we havent saved a penny, all though we have had a good time!

  4. Happy New Year to you both from Robin & Jenny here enjoying the summer in NZ. May we all have a good 2012. Keep on blogging we know we will.
