    Well Wil picked up our new to us motorhome tonight and I couldn't wait to get home from work! We've been sat having a brew and tried the heating and deciding where we will put everything for ages. I think our neighbour must think we're nuts:). Exciting stuff! Just gutted we can't get away in her this weekend as the kids have a better social life than us and both have things on :(. Will give me chance to get everything set up I suppose and let Wil figure out all the controls. Will hopefully meet some of you soon as we hope to get to some rallies. Will be heading to a party in Falkirk in a few weeks so will be looking for tips on places to visit while there (y) Denise

    Make sure you visit the Falkirk Wheel, its amazing.the Kelpies have been built since I had my "Scottish Winter" but they have to be unique.
    Congrats on your new motorhome. Enjoy!

    I'm sure you'll be very happy with her. Plenty stress free weekends for you to relax, Denise. In fact i'm surprised your not all sleeping in there tonight!
    Why don't you join the ccc then you've choice of lots of different rallies up and down the country . You can fit in around the kids social life that way. That's what we used to do when ours were younger. It meant we could get away at least twice a month cheaply , to some lovely villages. There's usually other kids at them too.
    Its forecast snow and frost for next Monday !
    You'll be able to see how fab the webasto is. Before the winter.
    Happy camping.

    Ain't it great :). I'm often found sitting quietly on our drive in my RV with a brew when we've not gone away. Just contemplating my navel and looking at my travel guides planning my next trip! Happy travels (y)

    Thanks for all the lovely comments. Been back again for a lovely peaceful brew away from the kids this evening! :) Think it may become habit forming giving me 30 minutes of peace and time to myself on returning from work before the demands for tea, homework help, money, lifts etc etc !! My motorhome is going to become my 'Woman Cave' in between trips!! Wil can have the garage :LOL:

    Great to hear about your new motorhome(y)

    Scottish Power were replacing power lines around us last month, so the power was off from 9 am till 4.30.....but thankfully we had the van, so the gas fire was on, we had lunch, endless teas and coffees and just sat inside snug and toasty watching tv until the power was back on again. Had we not had the van, we'd have been miserable as it was really cold:(

    Wishing you many happy times in your new van and lots of trips away(y)

    Margaret & Bill
