Grandchildren cannot wait and they will have there own rooms now so they are pleased as punch, Ethan asked if he could have a metal detector for the beach as there is a castle up on the hill and he wants to look for old things, of course I said yes then looked last night at half decent ones they are a fortune, so dropped myself right in it. hahahaha that's me all over. cheers John.
Sometimes things happen for a reason and this has worked out well for you in the end. Perhaps you could get the metal detector for his Xmas.

Thanks for message David,
This year has seemed endless but at least we can see light at the end of the tunnel now, and can start looking and buying bits for the van, the third room is only going to have one bed in, so going to fit it out with pine draws and wardrobe for more storage, so got thing's to keep our minds of moving in, and we can get the keys to measure up and put things in etc and have a walk down the beach. Thanks John.

back John. I sold my van in July as we were struggling to use our van enough to justify the ground rent. We have bought a tourer so will at least manage to get away but although we’ve had it since August we haven’t had chance to use it yet. The tourer is kept on a friend’s farm and because hubby helps out regularly we store it for nothing. We have had something on every week since we bought it so I know that we did the right thing by selling up. Every week I didn’t use my static cost me £80 but at least if I don’t use my tourer it doesn’t cost me anything

I wish you all the very best in your new van.

Lovely that you got another van and by the sea too.....enjoy.



Gill I understand your reasons for selling, but I am shocked to read you sold, I remember your journey and the excitement getting the right van, it getting delivered to the site and then on your plot and the decking etc.....

I was asked this week if I miss my van and I do and don’t!!!!

Yes I miss the community feel we had, the socialising with neighbours, my van etc, and that total relaxation feelings.

No...because we now live by the sea in an area we love, I don’t feel the need for going away anymore, if I didn’t live here I am sure I would miss my van a lot more.

Good luck in your tourer, when you get chance to use it.

Don't forget to take it easy when going down hills. I had a rather scary experience going down a long hill when leaving Bath. It taught me to slow down when going downhill. Apart from that, I loved having a tourer. Enjoy.
