As we approach the last few days of May the temperatures have been rising…time to water the orto; get the dogs walked early and sneak off to the beach for a spot of paddling, though it’s warm enough to swim! My target this week is to have the hand written edits on The Promise completed!

“A good decision is based on knowledge and not on numbers.”
Well, we left on the 23rd April for our first ‘pleasure’ trip in Bobbus since his arrival here in December. Fourteen days and 3,400 miles later we reluctantly arrived home.
We had crossed through four countries; Italy, France, Spain and UK(as in Gibraltar!), stayed on 8 campsites and two carparks and all accompanied by Naughty Nell and POOTiE the cat. They had a fabulous time and easily settled into motorhome life, thank goodness! We hadn’t had the opportunity to try them out for a couple of nights but it all worked really well. POOTiE didn’t mind being on his lead, as long as Nell was about he was most happy and I actually believe he thinks he’s a feline kind of dog, if that makes sense.
I loved driving the ‘bus’ and it was all made more poignant when we passed by a place in Spain that my parents took us as children which coincided with the first anniversary of Dad’s death. So a few tears were shed but more so happy memories shared with my four siblings over WhatsApp when we had an internet connection. Just cannot wait for the next trip… roll on September!
