It was interesting to see different makes of Motorhome's and how they handle the internal layouts and seeing them gave us a better idea of what we do and don't like. We both like the end fixed bed option: no having to make up your bed every night and take it down every morning, which becomes very wearing when we're away for a fortnight in our caravan. The Adriatik range came out tops with us for best use of space but we are probably a little biased, as our caravan is an Adria - they are different branches of the same company. We liked one of the smaller Izola's - you can have a nosey here at some of the larger ones they produce. Unfortunately we don't have a spare £40grand available for the new models - we have got the details of a sales site (actually pretty close to where we live) to go and have a nosey at their used models....... so guess where we are probably going next weekend. :0)
Yesterday was my usual routine: got all the house jobs done before Alex came round for a coffee and a natter. She and my DS went to the M,B&S Event on the Sunday, so we compared our experiences of that - she enjoyed the folk music (as we had) and had a chat to the male half of the duo, the upshot being that he can get her a harp, an instrument she has always wanted, via a FairTrade route, and for half the cost she would be expected to pay from a musical supplier here. She's now saving the pennies - hope she saves them quickly, as I so want to hear her play that!
Between jobs I was having a Blog reading/commenting catch-up but I got quite a few error messages up and couldn't get onto some blogs, which got really frustrating, so I gave up after a while. Am hoping the problem has now been fixed, as I want to continue with the catch-up later.
No stitchy pics for you today: I've been busy stitching my JA/S&S Monthly Challenge piece and some of it is very fine, so it's taking a while. Plus it's a secret until Reveal Day. ;0) So here, as promised, are pics of the other three Christmas cards I made during last month's cardmaking session:
Yes, the snowman theme really did take a strong hold of me. :0)
I had a phone call from Kate from Thread Bear earlier: some charts I ordered last month are now in stock - I just have to nip over to the site and add a couple more bits to the order and it'll be all set to go. Yippee....... stash post is imminent! LOL
Julie: I will email you about your question. It may be too long-winded and heavy for a Blog. :0)
Right, as it's raining again and I can't do any gardening I am off to watch what's left of Dawn Bibby's session on QVC, whilst continuing with the Monthly Challenge piece, but I'll be back later to read those Blogs I couldn't access yesterday and catch up with all your news.
Hope you're all having a good day, whatever the weather is like where you are. :0)
