An afternoon spent making curtains was well spent as the van looked so pretty filled with lovely colours.
Unfortunately I didn't get time to finish covering the cushions, but the throws looked good anyway. The blue cushions were from my old sofa, haha!
The children were excited to be off and I couldn't delay any longer! I had to trust the van to get us there and myself to handle it. Hells teeth, it was heavy going!
I did get the hang of it though and discovered that hills were best tackled in a sling-shot fashion. Fast down one hill so the momentum carried me almost to the top of the next one! It was a bit hairy driving it fast and the speedo wasn't terribly accurate, but I guessed I was doing around 60, but feeling like I was thundering along at 100!!!
Our first campsite was lovely. So peaceful with loooong woodland walks all around. The dog loved it but wasn't so keen on spending the night in the tiny tent with me. I thought the van was a bit crowded for us all on reflection.
My son did enjoy the peace and quiet :D
And the kitchen area very soon resembled home (messy!)!!!
It was a good first trip and another is now being planned :D
