♥Hello!♥ I am so sorry for my continuing absence here in the Attic....I keep wanting to apologise for life keeping me away from my blog, even though I know there's no need for an appology. But I do feel genuinely sorry that the days and weeks continue to slip by and there remains so very much I wish to write about, so many pictures stacking up, completed projects etc etc blah blah, well you've heard it all before eh. You know by now that when my Attic door stays closed it's generally because life is f-u-l-l. To the brim. But it's oh-so-good here in the Attic, ahh yes, my family life is full to bursting but very good right now. Lots of time spent with the ones i love, it can be nothing but good.
We are into one of my most favouritist holidays of the whole year, it's "May Spring Bank Week" here in the UK. You may remember that last year we took our beloved Connievan on a Jolly Holiday up to the north east coast (you can read about it here), such a terrific holiday, so many wonderful happy memories from that week. Marvelous.
We took Connievan out for one night last weekend, our first trip of the season. We stayed fairly local so that we could get my father in law to bob along and help us with a bit of fettling (the water heater/electrics needed fixing). Plus we kind of felt like we needed a short local trip to reacquaint with the business of accommodating five of us within a small space on wheels. It went OK, it was a huge learning curve dealing with Little B who was a Stationary Being last time we carravanned. Having him walking/climbing this year is a mixed blessing, cripes he kept us busy. But cripes did he LOVE our Connievan!
So the blankets have been installed in their summer residence, we miss them here at number 24 but it was lovely to see them snuggled in the 'van too.
Anyhooooo, tomorrow we're jaunting off up to the north west coast, to a rural/coastal place near the Lake District. We're booked into another very small campsite on a working farm, we are all very much looking forward to it and are keeping all available body parts crossed for good weather.
☼ Wish us luck! ☼
