Been a few days since getting back from Spain and many jobs done. Now having a rest and twiddling my thumbs -
So how are all our members ?
Anyone in the m/h community got the virus ?
Are the government doing enough ?

I to have got back from Spain.
Weather here at the moment looks good. Shame we can't get out and about.
It seems some people are not taking it seriously.
Let us hope that we can all get back on the road soon.
Stay safe all.
John.

I'm ok going a little mad.
I go out inthe back garden but next door as a 13 year old lad who as special needs. He climbs on something and hangs over the fence. I don't like being rude to him so I answer his questions. But he doesn't know when to stop. He is wearing me out.
Received my new garden strimmer today, and put it together with Henrys advice .
Well the twine stuff keeps snaping soo it's now gone to my brother in laws to see where I have been going wrong.
I have a pressure washer coming in the next couple of weeks but that will be ok as I won't hear him.
Oh my latest projects
First photo is Colin the caterpillar his BIG cousin as come to stay. Was for m/h but don't know where I can put him.
The next photo is my flower project. 
And my fairy garden
Latest see what happens next

I don't think we will get much use it of our motorhomes this year, it's not something that is going to go away in 3 week, I can see that being extended.
Stay safe folks

 Just had Haven Holidays on the phone . We should have been going the 14th for our Easter Hols but it was cancelled. I took the option to rebook for first week in June (£100 cheaper).
So they phoned me today and he didn't say no. But he didn't say yes to the June . So my options were there so we are leaving the money with them and they will phone me again  to see what I want to do about October staying in a static  ( when I know the dates) . If not then we will have a refund.
They are being very good. But doesn't look as though it will be open June .


I renewed my passport after a lot of my arm being twisted. 
We have booked a package holiday at Bordom Turkey for 7 July for 10 days . But I'm not sure if that will be accessible.

As my sister in law said in her email to me. You have had your wings clipped this year. YEP seems like it looks like a month touring in September if all is well

Very quite or quiet  on here
Hope everyone is staying safe.
I'm using this time to keep busy in the garden.
Bought a jetwasher from Aldi. 
I have done the back patio and pleased with it. Not done the side one yet as I grouted the flags and don't want it all to come out. Daughter then took this opportunity to borrow it.
Bought some very cheap fence paint from Wilkos. Verdict still out.
I am now painting the picket fence. In the back. I am NOT doing the large panels. 
I have SORN Gladys till this is over then I can re tax and off I go.
I must try and make a promise to myself NOT TO LET THE BAD WEATHER BOTHER ME. When I go off on my travels 

What are my fellow motor-Homers doing?
Keep Well and Safe

Hancock said: Everybody needs to do their bit, and the way I am doing my bit is working every hour God sends.
Talking crap all day isn't really work is it Matt, that's why more people are dying here than in any other European country, because you are Poo at your job, just as the Tories are Poo at running the country. All you do is help yourselves and your rich mates, that's why the rich are becoming ever richer while the poorest of the poor are being socially engineered out of existence. The numbers don't lie, this country has become an international embarrassment as the Tories core philosophy of increase wealth all for self, and (Ooops) off and die quietly if you are stupid enough to be poor however hard you work. Isn't that the reality, after ten years of austerity driven pay freezes, or minuscule increases below inflation, for the masses, as Tory government gives ever more to those who need it least. But look over there, there's the problem; foreigners, Muslims, single mothers, the unemployed, benefit scroungers, immigrants, the disabled...etc, but it is never, ever, those who are actually in government, those greed driven morally bankrupt untalented Tories. And the social media brainwashed peasants just can't put two and two together as they keep vigorously waving their plastic Union Jack which was mass produced somewhere in south east Asia.

Decided that I was going to do the jobs that have been wanting doing for a long time, during the lockdown. Have decorated couple of rooms and renetted  our large garden fish pond against the heron. Also found a leak and fixed a pipe on the pond waterfall. That took some doing as the pipe had been hidden under some very large stones - which was not originally fitted by me.

Must admit I'm getting cabin fever and looking forward to getting out and about in motorhome again.

Hi all, van sorned end of March, just turned Mohos wheels up and down drive and ripped mains lead out of the van - no damage except to plug and security drive light that it was wrapped around but heyho easily sorted and something else to do:shock:.  It's raining now but we've had cracking weather here so that was a bonus but would have preferred being out with the van.  Up to now 6 booked rallies have been cancelled up to the end of June so hoping the July rally at Brid' with us Motor-Homers will still happen - fingers crossed:)

I renewed my passport under duress. 
Our claire and I have booked a family package holiday to Bodram Turkey

Only paid the deposit but needs paying in full end of this month April.
Now we are wondering if 
A).  lose our deposit and cancel. 
Or
B). Pay the rest of the money and hope we have a holiday.

But what would the situation be over there hotel water parks etc etc 


Oh we don't know what to do

Any advice would be appreciated

Hope everyone is OK
Here's what I have been up to
Spending LOTS of time in the garden
A couple of half hour walks.
Don't seem to have the get up and go for walks as Izzy and I use to do
Ummmmmm
Family History
Reading
Jigsaw puzzles
Ummmmmmmmmmm
Bit of cleaning and cooking and baking.
Not a lot of baking as I have to eat it all 

Oh did I mention that there is an app called Borrow Box
It is the library service and you can read on your tablet 
Great it is and you can order a book
All free just have to be a member of the library

Knitting NHS Bears
Ummmmmmmm
Oh I have a pigeon problem  and it's driving me mad.
Chap been round and cleared my gutter out which was full of pigeon poo . It was disgusting .
Thinking of putting netting around the solar panels and spikes on the gutter part. 
So fingers crossed he will get back to me. They are driving me mad

All I can say why my roof 
And I stopped feeding birds years ago and I doubt my neighbours are supplying food.
Well  with no BIG ADVENTURES or HOLS then hopefully these pennies can pay for it or at least go towards it 

So what have you all been up to?

Oh I recycled a very old home made bird table to a 
1) fertility pole
2) Maypole needing ribbons
3) lighthouse
4) windmill

Well it's a windmill this week it's got sails but I wanted larger ones

Yesterday went a run out with my daughter to pick grandson Ethan up. He was camping with his dad and sister Tilly at Anglesey. But football training was beginning so Claire. And I went to pick him up from Llandudno. Hard for our Tilly not to have her brither with her but apparently she caught 34 crabs at Conway so that cheered her up.
Claire , Ethan and myself went into the center of Llandudno and on the pier. It was well organised and people were doing very well at distancing and following the footprints. We walked along the prom and on the beach people were keeping there distances. Looked a little crowded but definitely distanced. From there we went to Ross and then Colwyn bay. Lovely day out and no worries. Just what I needed 

What have you members been up to?

Hope your surviving?

I’m not walking that much but that could be due to having no Izzy to drag me kicking and screaming on a walk.

I had a few days at Hayfield C&CC site and it was lovely and weather was on my side. This was my first of being on my own this year and it wasn’t bad at all. I even called in at the Sportsman pub for a pint.
Some happy memories there with another group that took care of me in my first months with my motorhome

Now where next. Each time I think of somewhere it seems a no no. 
Oh well that’s life 
Hope you are all keeping well and if your not so good at the moment here’s wishing you a speedy recovery. Or feeling better soon.

We're both well here Polly but things are looking bad covidwise with UK showing almost 7000 new cases yesterday, France almost 16000 and Spain a wopping 31000 new cases yesterday.  Reckless people with a total disregard for this killing virus. We've just had a few nights at Rowsley's Grouse and Claret site and had a couple of meals in the pub - lovely food and very well organised.

keep well
