Not a Thing to Wear

Standard

I suspected that there might be a problem when I threw out all  most of my clothes! Now I’ve nothing to wear! Surprise! I reckon it’s a reaction to loosing Mum, well I have to blame someone. I needed to cheer myself up so I’ve booked a party for my birthday in a few weeks. I just wanted a happy party! Now I haven’t anything to wear so I’ve temporarily cheered myself up with a new hair cut, manicure and new lipstick. Oh and I’ve booked a holiday next week with a friend. I’ve still nothing to wear so next week may or indeed will, include a large dose of retail therapy. Sounds like good therapy to me!

I forgot to mention that I have also joined a gym, I love swimming. I’ve bought a new Fit bit and I’m going to the Arctic Circle in January. How mad is that? Life is an adventure.

Remember “Adventure before Dementure”

Campervan to bed

Standard

We have finally put Damnvan to bed after spending seventy nights away this Summer. It has been so good.

We visited Devon and Cornwall

We walked up mountains

And along coastsimage

We flew kites and paddled in the sea. There was the Lovely Lake District, interesting Buxton and fabulous Yarndale. All in all a great summer. As the nights get longer and the days colder we tuck Damnvan up for the Winter and make plans for next year. Let’s hope that we can beat the seventy night record!

Awesome Austria Day Two

Where else in the World would you get a coffee, partway up a mountain,with such amazing views? Today is day two of our trip to Mayrhofen, Austria. We have been many times (aren’t we lucky?) and are always jaw droppingly impressed with the beautiful views.

The purpose of our trip is to walk a lot, get fit and drink whisky. Mmmmm not sure…..

This is is a picture of Hubs looking for our lost path. Now this is not unusual we frequently lose our way.

Today was sooooo hot that we did a small walk up hill of course, got lost of course and stumbled across the cafe pictured above. It would have been very rude not to have Apple Strudel with cream and tea. Did anyone mention getting fit?

On our crawl up through the town in extreme heat I did notice a couple of craft shops. These will require investigation within the next few days so I will report back.

We returned to our hotel to have a swim ( Hubs to lift weights) so I decided to lie on the bed and relax. After all I am on holiday not a fitness break and it is hot and the strudel finished me off!

A Girly Weekend

Standard

This week-end I decided to take Damnvan1 away for an “airing”. I’ve missed being away a with her and didn’t want her to feel neglected and get a flat battery. As it was something of a special weekend, because my Grandaughter was visiting AND it’s her birthday this week, I decided to take Grandaughter away for a mini break. 

We went to a caravan park called  Plassey Leisure Park which was perfect for the occasion. Not too far away,children orientated and somewhere close by to eat out. We also went swimming in the (indoor!) pool which was great fun. I had an all time first for me. We sat in bed,in our sleeping bags, eating crisps and breakfast, watching a Disney DVD all Sunday morning. Fab! Children sure know how to enjoy themselves.

Damnvan1 was very well behaved as was Grandaughter. All three of us had a good time and enjoyed some Girly bonding. The weather was lovely,the location great and the break just right.
