    So what was the very best thing about being a Motorhomer in 2014?
    For me it was the first trip to Germany in the van. We only had ten days but we'll be going back for a month or two during the 'Whingy Two Year World Tour Of Europe' (commencing in June 2015). An equally great thing was meeting new funster friends and catching up with the old ones.
    What were your high lights? What made 2014 extra special? P1050960.JPG

    Sooooo, the Best Thing about being a Motorhomer in 2014 was NEARLY having sex and NOT actually having sex?
    Hmmm, I'll have to try that...

    I would love to be there in September but the Two Year Tour of Europe will be underway and, sadly, it will be too far to travel.

    My Mum finally recovered from her hip operation from 3 years ago. And she got both her cataracts sorted out. I am FREE now :xThumb:

    Highlights as usual was the Stratford rally, and a lovely 4 weeks spent at Jim's. I will remember 2014 mainly for the really long period of good weather.

    Also it marked the 5th year of being a fulltimer. I cracked 5 years so the next 5 should be just as easy :whistle:

    On the very last day of 2014 I had an eye test that showed that I am just starting to develop cataracts. "How long ..." I asked. "Can't tell," he said "could be 5 years, could be 10, could be 15". "Can I do anything to extend the time?" "Nope - it's just one of the effects of the ageing process".

    It also showed that I need new lenses only 12 months after the last lot. So that's another 350 quid down the drain. Bit of a bugger this getting old business - it's starting to sneak up on me. :(

    Good to hear the news about your mum though. Good news for both of you. (y)

    Sometimes it only comes along once and in 2014 it was our trip through Europe into Morocco with various Funsters on the way. From leaving home, spending New Years Eve in Narbone eating really good food, travelling the first week in January into Spain. Stopping of at Peniscola picking Oranges and eating them off the trees (with permission ).

    Travelling through the Seria Espuna with Bright Blue sky's and snow topped mountains. Stopping off at Totana camper stop and being greeted by Funsters who lived there.

    Carrying on to meet up with funsters to travel on to Morocco were every single day was all I wished it would be, the beaches the mountains and good kind helpful people.

    2014 was a year when it all jelled and we enjoyed every minute.

    After seeing Mum have the 2 ops. They don't do them at the same time I would say don't worry about it. They did it on a day surgery no overnight stay needed. She was in a little bit of pain the day after but by the 3rd day she was fine again and by the end of the week she was loving being able to read text on the TV for the first time in ages. She looked pretty scary though :eek:

    Two tears ago my eye test showed I was developing cataracts they told me the same as you just wait and see, but they check me every 12 months now. Think it's a age thing.
