    Another short trip as first grandchild due on 23rd Sept., and the boss is insisting on being back for the arrival.:cry:

    I'm a grumpy old git I'd rather have a holiday than a baby puking over me.

    Telling porkies as we are heading north at the moment parked up at Graverlines tonight. Heading up to Belgium as we decided to get an awning on the van and our dealer gave us a cracking price. Then we will follow the sun not got a clue to where we are going, that's the best bit about Motorhoming.

    Nice one @Lenny HB. (y)

    We are France bound on the 16.20 hrs train on Thursday, and apart from arriving in Calpe (Spain) on 4th Sept, we haven't a clue where we are headed for in between. :LOL:

    Safe travels. (y)

    Jock & Rita. :)

    Now in Leper/Ypres, Motorhomes now banned from the parking area alongside the canal by the Gate. Went to the new Aire too far out and full anyway. The car park by the canal by the old leisure centre had rather a lot if cars in it. So we are in the parking for the new sports centre just round the corner. A couple of vans in here, had a word with one he said busy time of year so police turn a blind eye. Only had one small beer in case we get moved on.
    Funny how I didn't notice the no vehicles over 3.5t sign when I drove in.

    A lot warmer a few miles inland, 26 when we arrived at 6 pm and now 21.5 at 9:30.

    Ceremony more moving mid week when there are a lot less people there.

    Fillet steak marinated with 3 peppers & Spanish omelette.

    Could be dangerous using that blow touch on the creme brule with your digestive system....

    That is sad to learn. :(

    I too excel in that department, but I blame the beer. :LOL:

    BTW @Lenny HB, a smashing looking meal. (y)

    Chers,

    Jock. :)

    A blow torch - very chefy. Useful for lighting some bbqs too.

    Edit: Just read the post about farting. Hmm, be careful with naked flames in an enclosed space. :)

    Being of a polite and retiring nature I'll avoid suggesting you could dispense with the blowlamp and just use a match and "natural talent". No, I won't suggest that and maintain my high standards instead. :)

    I wonder if it's an age thing, the older we get the more we fart..? Perhaps that's where "old farts" come in....

    Sharp certainly thinks so...:envy: :lipssealed:
