    We can't go this year due to not having a motorhome yet

    We were going to book a B&B for Friday sat and sunday night but its not the same and wouldn't work. I like to wander off to the show at 9am and Caroline and the dog have a lie in and meander over at about 10.30am.

    The nearest B & B that's takes dogs is 20 mins drive away.

    We were going to book a B &B for Friday, Saturday and Sunday night but its not the same. I like to wander over to the show at 9am, then Caroline and the dog meander over around 10.30am. The nearest B&B that's takes dogs is 20 mins drive away [​IMG]

    We like to have a good look around, see if there are any accessories worth buying, any freebies going of course.

    Then sit at the outdoor bar for a few drinks in the afternoon, after a few its time for the big event.

    Sharing a Cornish pasty,(yes I did say sharing). We save all year to be able to afford one from the stall, almost a bleeding fiver, my father will be turning in his grave, but its only once a year I keep reminding myself. I do keep saying every year before we set off that we are not having one, I,m taking sarnies this time I say [​IMG]

    Then Caroline likes to wander back to the van to get the plates warm and I go for the second big event.

    Fish and chips from the other stall, only £14 for fish n chips twice, do you hear that grave turning over again. Well its only money I say, we really enjoy the day but she says I then moan for a month about the prices and say never again.

    Until the next year that is.

    I,ve been saving up for Peterborough and we havn't managed to find that elusive motorhome yet, so I,ve got spare money floating around if anyone is interested.

    Sometimes its nice to get ripped off. I,m really going to miss it this year.

    Anybody for pasty n chips, lets hear it for Peterborough.

    Will you let me know how it goes please.

    From a very, very jealous tongue in cheek miserable Paul, Caroline and Suki the dog.

    PS, I wonder what they do with all the leftover Cornish pasties?

    I'm going this year for the first time and meeting my brother and sister-in-law there.

    I am looking for my first motorhome and going with an open mind.

    I have booked a B&B for Saturday night but not expecting to see all the ones I am interested in, might go back on Sunday morning.

    It's scarey but I know I will regret it if I don't take the plunge.

    Happy Peterborough show to all that are going.

    I don't yet have a MH but as I live locally, I enjoy the buzz of wandering around as a day visitor.

    @Mimi Make sure you buy SOMETHING!
    Essex needs more motorhomers (y)

    I'll guarantee your legs will ache after climbing in and out of 'em all!

    Great fun though and if you get bored, look us up.
    Happy hunting.

    Yes, hoping to find something. I have been looking at storage facilities around Benfleet or somewhere not too far, as my home cannot accommodate.
