Suzy the motorhome still has not moved. I wonder if she will start when we eventually fire her up. She finally has some hardcore in front of her wheels but not enough for her to get off her driveway. Her new gate is up and slowly but surely we head towards getting her off the drive. Next job to build a ramp. and then her next stop will be new tyres and her habitation check . January is finally blowing out and we are around 88 days from our holidays. The weather seems stuck between misty days, rainy days and frost. The Gulf Stream is holding the weather down and it just won't move . We have had snow . A slight sprinkling on the Pennines and the Cat and Fiddle and those pretty leaf like ... read more

Just completed our penultimate planning call with Dakanis and Vitas from Lithuania. Getting excited now...I've already printed off my boarding pass and just received another donation..yippee!

Not sure about the prospective lack of hot water due to a boiler failure at the hotel especially as they had snow last weekend.
