Life Returns To some Sort of Normality.
BRITAIN SUFFERED THE WETTEST WINTER FOR DECADES AND HUGE SWATHES OF THE COUNTRY WERE FLOODED FOR WEEKS ON END.NOBODY FELT LIKE TRAVELLING ANYWHERE!
WE HAD BOUGHT OUR THIRD AND FINAL HOUSE TO LET AND THIS HAS JUST BEEN TENANTED FOR THE FIRST TIME.
FIRST TRIP AWAY IN THE MOTORHOME THIS YEAR WAS A COUPLE OF DAYS FAIRLY LOCALLY WHICH BEGAN IN TORRENTIAL RAIN TO AWAKEN THE FOLLOWING DAY TO SNOW!
SECOND TRIP WAS TO AN AREA OF OUTSTANDING NATURAL BEAUTY, THE FOREST OF BOWLAND WHERE WE ENJOYED PEACE AND QUIET IN GLORIOUS COUNTRYSIDE.
2015 AND DESPITE RADIOTHERAPY TREATMENTS FOR BOTH AND GENERALLY RECOVERING FROM CANCER WE STILL MANAGED A GOOD NUMBER OF TRIPS AWAY, AMONGST WHICH WE ENJOYED A SUPERB HOLIDAY IN THE MOTORHOME TO THE SCOTTISH ISLE OF ARRAN STUNNING SCENERY WITH MANY OPPORTUNITIES TO WILD CAMP. TIPS ARE NOW COMPLETED.
The latter part of 2014 found Nick and I both, unbelievably, diagnosed with cancer. Nick had oral cancer and I had breast cancer. As you can imagine, we had a few bleak months to get through, what with operations and radiotherapy for both. By the second week in April, 2015, all treatments were finished and the outlook, so far, is positive.We are now both on regular check ups for the next five years.
At the same time, we were renovating a house to let, which obviously took longer than expected, with one thing and another. Finally, last week, we handed the house over to our agent and we are currently free (appointments permitting) to proceed with life.
No major holidays planned, just short breaks away in the motorhome for the present.
2013 WE UPGRADED OUR MOTORHOME TO A 2002 FORD AUTOSLEEPER, WHICH WE ARE VERY PLEASED WITH AND HAVE HAD MANY EXCITING TRIPS IN IT, MAINLY TO SCOTLAND!
2012 AND OUR TWO REMAINING CATS DIED, A FEW MONTHS APART.IT WASN'T LONG BEFORE WE FOUND A NEW FURRY FRIEND, IN THE FORM OF A FOUR MONTH OLD GINGER MALE CAT, WHOM WE NAMED FEARGAL.HE MOST DEFINITELY RULES THE ROOST BUT IS AS SOFT AS PUTTY.
