Ah, how lovely..


What a beautiful place, loved your post, a lot of children miss out on the simplicities of life now.

We bought a static van 2 years ago and we love it! We decided on a part of the Lincolnshire coast, the site is very well maintained, its quiet, no pubs or amusements. Behind our van is a beautiful lake where van owners can fish in tranquil surroundings. We love it here, now Mr B only works Mon, Tues and Wed we come down Wed through until Sunday each week. Last year we invested in an air cooler for the lounge and a large fan is running through the night in the bedroom. Life is soooo casual here.👍

Don't know if anyone else has mentioned it but plastic bottles are safest for elderflower champers. If you haven't got any its worth buying some if the cheapest bottled water your supermarket sells, indulge in decadent watering if your plants with said water and then use the bottles. I've read too many online tales of bottles exploding in a sticky mess so I've never been brave enough to use glass. Also, that grass. My Cumbrian In-Laws call it 'dothering grass'. My husband used to collect it as a child and then cover each little seed head with multi coloured foil saved from sweets. I think his Mum still has some on display!


So many wonderful memories for you and the Quaker grass - how long is it since I heard that.I love your little Connie I wish I had one too, thank you for showing us your lovely pictures as always.xxx


I loved loved loved reading this post yay for caravan life. Best of both worlds town and country. Liz x


What wonderful memories of Summer you are capturing, the photos of the river are stunning. A perfect way to spend a weekend x


Quaker grass!!! It's been forever since I've seen Quaker grass. My mum loved it <3 She called it 'wiggle woggles' because you can't hold it and keep it still. Thank you for the smile on my face & the rememberings. Happy weekends

Lovely photos! I use the elderflower champagne (and cordial) recipes from How to Make Your Own Drinks by Susy Atkins - they usually turn out very well. The ingredients are very similar so I'm sure your recipe will work just fine x


Lovely weekend Lucy .. thanks xx Joy xx


Completely get you! I love this weather and I cant wait to get out in my caravan too. Aren't they just the most loveliest things on wheels!


What gorgeous memories the caravan will provide.
