Busy days ahead

We seem to have a lot going on at the moment. We’re in the middle of building a cupboard to go in the caravan. First we have to replace a panel on the ceiling and one on the back all. These have got wet and now have mould on them. The contact adhesive we have has gone ‘off’ so we need to buy that next time we’re in town. The cupboard itself has had one coat of varnish and will get another coat today before we then finish putting on the doors and finally installing it. We’re going to the neighbours tonight to learn a new card game and I might take Qwirkle along as well. That’s another fun game. Tomorrow evening (Saturday) a young girl is coming for portrait photos so the lounge will be full of studio lights for a while. On Monday we have to take the bus/motorhome to a place that is going to put a big red slash on the side. Hopefully this might help sell it. AND the same day we pick up new Ikea wardrobes and will start to install them in our bedroom. So it’s all go at the moment.

A red lightening bolt would look awesome. Especially for a younger couple looking for something second hand that they could afford.

It will break up so much 'whiteness' and make it look more attractive. That's the hope anyway.

So, will you miss that motor home when it is sold?

It is wonderfully comfortable but we're replacing it with a car and caravan. We can unhook the caravan at a park or whatever and go off exploring in the car for day trips. The bus was a bit unwieldy for some places and roads.

Yes, the motorhome is really lovely. We fitted it out ourselves and it is a bit sad to put it up for sale.

@judyev Hey, slow down. You're making me dizzy with all that busyness!!. Breathe, drink coffee. Better still come and hear me reading some good literature at the cafe down the road.

Are you really going to read aloud at the cafe? That would be pretty cool.

@JudyEv I'd love that job. I'd also be willing to be hired out as a literary kissogram. I'd turn up at birthday parties and read a bit of Keats or Yeats to lift the tone.

Nice motorhome. I have an old camper that I can't let go of even though I haven't used if for awhile. I have decided to renovate it this summer.

I really enjoy being on the road. The bus is something else. The caravan is quite nice but it is a bit small compared to the bus.

@JudyEv The more room when you are on the road the better.

Here is a link to a post I wrote about it. You have to make lines of similar shapes or exact colours and different shapes. It is a lot of fun without being too difficult.
I wrote recently about the board game ‘Ticket to Ride’ and how much I enjoy playing it. Another game which most seem to enjoy is Qwirkle. It is recommended for...

The bus is a bit restrictive in going off-road so we now have a 4 wheel drive and a caravan. It will give us more options when we're travelling.

Vince wants to improve his portrait skills - practice with his new lights and lens - and the friend's grand-daughter is 24. He has offered free sessions so he can practice portraits, not that he'll ever set up shop and charge for them.

Sounds busy. Yesterday I ordered the maps for our trip east ...mine in 2.5 weeks....hubbies in 6 weeks.....then I purchased a cellphone for my husband and set it up with a minimal calling plan....next arranged for a new calling plan for my smartphone. The two together will be a fair amount less than my single plan was previously.... Today I spending a few minutes quilting.

@Morleyhunt I think however much you try, moving at some point gets to be a bit disorganised and frustrating.
