I know, I know….

I’ve been terrible again….but not much has happened. The house is still on the market

Still no viewings or interest in the house

Still spending a lot of weekends at the caravan and this week we have been here the whole week. I really do love having Alan home 10 minutes after he rings me at the end of his day! We have tea before 8 and actually have time for movies or to catch up on TV. 

The biggest change has been trying to sort our walkway out so that getting in and out of the caravan isn’t a pain. Though it has meant 4 trips to a builder’s merchant in 3 days. But we are getting there….slowly…. this is progress so far

This is the frame to start with 

This is with planks balanced in place ready. 

We have managed to connect the gas up now which is good. As we can do hot showers and cook!! 

So I managed to cook…..I even managed to do a roast!

I’ll keep you updated with the steps as they get finished! 

I know, I’m sorry!


It has been a long time since I posted anything, and this is partly due to being busy but also because nothing much new has happened with regards to the house.

We have no managed to go live with Purple Bricks and fingers crossed we actually get some interest of some kind now.

The caravan still has no gas or means of getting in but we are hoping that will change this coming weekend. I will endeavour to get some pictures. My health has been a bit rocky so there hasn’t been much else going on to be honest. We had some time off together, Alan and I, which was lovely. We had some sun, some showers and lots of cuddles with my parents dog.

We also got to go to the Observatory at Kielder Water which was fascinating and eye opening. Overall life has been good recently, really enjoying the volunteering and the friends I have made there but will be sad to leave when we FINALLY move!!

Hopefully we will get the house sold soon and we can get going with the exciting future. One thing we are trying to do is start saving for the build, sadly we are hopeless at saving so any ideas on how we could go about it and stick to it, please let me know!!

Here are a few more picture from our holiday, one of my Dad with the dog!
