Still Alive!

Hi folks!

It's been a while since my last post, nothing wrong this end at all, in fact the complete opposite!

Work is flat out and I am currently working up to my maximum amount of days and driving hours. Financially this is very good, but it is completely knackering.

Any of you who have driven trucks or buses/coaches for a living will know exactly what I am talking about. The roads around here are narrow and twisty, so imagine having to concentrate that hard for 4.5 hrs at a stretch. The only thing I can roughly translate it to is to try and continuously thread a needle for that amount of time.

Hence the lack of blogging, when I get in of an evening, it's a bite to eat and fall into bed!

Next weekend, I will actually be getting three day's off on the trot, but I will be putting on my nurses outfit and looking after "M" who goes in on Friday for an operation. She is hoping to be out later that day or early the next depending on how things go. Strangely it's not the op that's the problem, she has a reaction to the anesthetic! So it all depends how she copes with that.

Summer down here on the South coast is starting to come to an end. It's getting a wee bit nippy first thing in the morning, certainly is when I'm up at 0500hrs! Not only that but it's starting to get dark a lot earlier in the evenings.

Still plenty of holiday makers clogging up the roads though, since the kids have gone back to school it seems to be busier than when they were off! I guess that really does show the true demographics of those who caravan for a holiday?!

I've noticed on the comments that there seems to be a few more people taking the plunge and taking to life in a caravan! I really do hope it all works out for everyone of you.

You just have to have a positive outlook on life, easier said than done sometimes, and I will be the first to admit that!

We have now been in our static caravan for a couple of months now, all is well and we are finding our feet with our new way of living.

Do I miss the caravan? Yes, I certainly do, Would I go back to it? Yes, like a shot if this does not work out.

I cant put my finger on exactly what I miss, maybe it's the smell, the fresh air, just can't seem to put it down to anyone thing.

The one thing I don't miss is filling aqua rolls and being able to have a long hot shower without worrying about the water running out.

The loo emptying never bothered me, nor did the moving. Must admit it is also nice not to have to worry about the awning on windy days!

Thanks to all that have emailed us to make sure we were ok! The world really is a small place when you come to think of it!

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