    Being the worlds worst blog keeper, I thought I would do a thread on here instead.

    We started our 2nd tour yesterday with our 1st night stay at the exotic Cornish Farm where Eddie VanBitz has fleeced us of all our money before we even leave the country!!

    Then, because we will be very poor when we leave here we are going to visit a couple of reprobates in the New Forest to scrounge of them for a few days. Once their larder is empty we will go a visit the two mothers. Duty done, it will then be a bee line for the ferry in about 2 weeks time for a leisurely drive through France and down to Spain. It will be interesting to see how we get on with a significantly bigger van.

    We have had a fantastic year, partly due to some amazing Funsters - meeting new ones and old ones throwing a brilliant hen/stag do. Some that drove a huge amount of miles to share our special day and just in general being amazing people. Thank you one and all.

    Currently in Taunton sight seeing while Vanbitz do the biz on Nessie.

    Very pleased with your decision. I love reading the ongoing stories of trips of all sorts but if they are on separate blogs I only remember to look at them at very irregular intervals. But if they are on here as a thread I will probably see them when I hit "New" or even better if they are logged as a Watched thread I'll get an email about new postings.
    Look forward to your adventure once you have eaten the mothers out of house and home.
    Best of luck to you.

    I didn't know where Cornish Farm was so I Googled it. It isn't in Cornwall! They should be done under the Trades Description Act - but it looks very swish. Do they give you shears to trim the lawn edges around your pitch with?

    But all the best and have a safe crossing and subsequent trip down to Spain. :)

    I thought it was in Cornwall too, until I made the booking. Thought we had to go to Pasty Country but turned out is was Cider Country instead. The pitches and grounds are the neatest I have ever seen.

    We only invited you so that you would stock our meager larder, so perhaps you'd better phone the mothers today........:wink:

    The shower works, no loo, bidet or sink yet, but these two are Rufty Tufty @JJ types and rarely wash anyway.

    This is true, washing is so over rated.

    @Popeye has done a super job of the new en-suite, such a stylish flare with the decor, it's a bit drafty though!

    Bloody good innit, can't do right for doing wrong.......... I was told that everyone north of the Watford Gap had an outside loo, so I was being the good host and providing one.


    If she hadn't got so Pis sloshed she wouldn't have needed the loo.......

    Not at all @Lottiethehymer she has dived straight into the washing up when our dishwasher threw a little tantrum last night so she has earned herself some more brownie points.
