    We collected Buffy yesterday :BigGrin::BigGrin::BigGrin::BigGrin::BigGrin:

    After conducting several guided tours for neighbours (including a tour for a friend who was "just passing" - you don't "just pass" here :Rofl1:) Irnbru and family arrived to take up residence for the night staying in their van on our drive. It was wonderful to exchange ideas and information, and although our hand over was very comprehensive there is a lot to take in so a warm smile from a friend and knowing she was there was such a comfort.

    We've told the neighbours it's the start of a gypsy transit camp :Wink:

    Last night we slept in Buffy and woke up to the sound of heavy rain on the roof..... strange but it's a sound I have always enjoyed, snug and warm in bed listening to nature.

    Now to tidy up and see what needs to be done :Smile:

    List making is in progress already.

    I was very pleased with the dealer who not only put in extra power points by the bed but also made sure there was half a tank of diesel and supplied a full bottle of gas, regulator and pigtails plus the mains hook up lead. They also had a spare pole to replace the damaged one for our existing awning (now no longer manufactured) which they gave us. Rob J from Knowepark Caravans in Livingston THANK YOU for going above and beyond.

    Also to AIB Insurance (Nigel and Darren) for being so patient.

    Now the fun really begins......

    If only..... Kent is a bit too far from Scotland........

    Next weekend will depend on the weather and the weekend after we take Buffy to show her to the family.

    Better now while it is this close and you don't need an exit visa to visit.

    I apologise for the fact that she will never willing eat a supermarket egg again. We'll bring more next time we see you. :BigGrin:

    How was the Country and Western? There were a lot of people in their cowboy gear around when we did the shopping yesterday - it all adds to the townscape.

    Please let me know that you get home safe.

    It's from the registration plate.... I'm not sure if she is a vampire slayer or just likes running round naked!
