Well good morning!!!!!!

Here we are back in the uk, and it's damp and miserable!! But heyho , it can only get better !!!!!

So I got back yesterday, about 3pm, wich was a bonus, for me, because my ticket was flexible I sneaked onto an earlier ferry,, 2 days earlier to be excact!!!

Now me and helga are safely ensconced on the park and ride aire at Dover road Canterbury, and for £3,00 per night it's fine,, water, waste, free bus into town ( and the ticket is also valid for other busses during the day while there) so I reckon that's great value!!!

Today I will be going into Canterbury, hoping to sort out Motorhome wifi, from the 3 shop!!! And I may test myself to a nice bit of grub? Possibly a big fat filled,heart stopping,English breakfast !!!

I'm awake early again but I put that down to the fact that I went to bed about 9,30 ish,, slept well though( as usual) ....

So back to reality for me, got a couple of numbers for caravan/ mh service places yesterday from an old boy here, who lives in his van with his wife for the summers here, and spends the winters in Thailand, with her( she is Thai) so I was told, but I havnt seen her yet( she's probably tied to the bed) !!!

And a woman called Debbie, who lives in her van 4 days a week on the aire here, while she teaches at the college here( or uni, I'm not sure)
Very nice woman, been mhomeing for a good few years!!!

Tomorrow, I am going to make my way to Essex, for a bit of a doo on sat night, so I think ( know) Sunday will be a right off !!!

Then next week I will contact a few people and get my arse in gear for a bit of work !! My mate in Norfolk who has my van and all my tools has expressed a need to change his life from, working nights in a fruit packing place,for minimum wage to coming back to working with me again!! Now I don't mind that, here's why ,,,,
He is 20 years younger than me,,, he has a stronger back!!
He was one of the best workers I ever had!
my customers all liked him.
He was very reliable
And the best part about it is,,,,, he is only a little bloke so he can kip on helgas sofa!!!!!
Anyway that's something to consider,, I will need a good labourer and he does fit the bill lovely!!!
Plus the fact I get the van I was going to give him back, ( the one he's had since I been away) so that's a good saving !!!!!

Anyway,,as you can see, I started the new thread with the title that was suggested ( as were many more) and I just thought it wasn't too long and sounds ok.!

The adventure begins. !!!! Chat soon I hope. Have a good morning !! Xxxxxxxxxx. Ian/ helga,,,,,,

Welcomw home!:) Madness just going back to Norfolk as that's where all your financial woes started in the first place! Go where the money/work is and live there and get plenty of cash together and van sorted properly for the next adventure IMO.

Getting Three SIM at last a very grown up start:LOL:

Morning Ian! Welcome back !
I am going to miss your sunny weather updates from Spain! We had a very hard frost this morning and snow is on the way!
Loving the new thread title( didn't like to say that we used to say that when someone was on the loo when growing up!)
Sounds like you have offers of work and space for Helga from a lot of Funsters so they could be your weekend / holiday destinations to discover the delights of the UK! :sun::hugs:
