    I have realised that by association, every time I jump into the van, I get excited at the thought of a new adventure! :)

    We have had so many grand adventures over the last two years that I can ONLY associate the van with having fun! :D

    Can you imagine my disappointment when over the last few days, each time I climbed into the van it was only to pack MORE stuff in to use it as a removal van for my daughter :eek:

    Roll on next week! Come on Cornwall (y)

    Never ever, ever, ever, ever, ever use a motorhome to move furniture.

    It should be BANNED!

    I offered our services to help a friend in distress, and our camper was used to transport large items of furniture, but I am so sad, I still got excited that I was taking the van out!!!

    I have let us all down, my kid she is 40 hubby's 41, on receipt of said van and an enquiry as to whether there would be any lending rights to her, dad slammed his foot down, NEVER, a few weeks ago I stupidly said "if you borrow it you will have to have a training course with us, because there's things you need to know" I know how could I be so stupid(n):lipssealed::Eeek: and on the those words, wonder daughter said and I might add with glee " So we've gone from NEVER to a good possibility if we do a training day hhhmmmmm, see where we are in a few months then" oh dreary me,

    I've gone shopping several times to Tesco about three miles from where we live in ours. It still feels like a mini-adventure although I haven't been tempted to wind the awning out and put the table and chairs out yet when we arrive!

    Likewise.. we are about 13 miles form the nearest supermarket, so it gives the van a run.. and we have the use of the facilities in the car park..

    Anyone who goes to Makro will have noticed that they have a row of 16a EHU for freezer vans.. I wonder if they would object to a morothome plugging in.. :LOL:

    My Spaniel is exactly the same. I might use it the next time she has to go to the Vet's. That will confuse the cr*p out of her :)

    Spaniels are easily confused! Every time I took mine to the pets hotel he used to love it until he realised I was leaving and he wasn't The staff used to love him and the speed he came along the corridor when he heard our voices when we picked him back up
    Lovely dogs!
