A very big welcome from me. All 'other halves' should have a sep identity here!! Well done and hope you like the banter. Can't wait to catch up on the news with you, as we missed you during our travels in France.
Thankyou everyone for such a warm welcome. I'm always around I just don't post very often. Bruce has enough words for the two of us!
Well we've had a really excellent summer, very slow pace through France - mainly staying on aires but also some wild camping. August on aires is a litle manic with loads of kiddies and some fierce french (guard) dogs -one of which attacked our poor nervous goldie (no blood spilt though apart from my fingers - slight touch of rope burn) so that hasn't done a lot for her confidence.
The weather seemed to be deteriorating in France at the end of Sept and the Municipal we were on was about to close so we've legged it into Spain where it's been beautiful blue skies and temps around 29 deg C until today - now cloudy with a few spots of rain (think it's following us). We used truck stops through Spain and had excellent meals and no hassle parked next to some mighty monster trucks - also a lot easier than the stresses associated with finding a campsite - wondering whether there's space, getting lost etc etc.
Sorry Sharon for not meeting up with you in France - would have been great, just got so fed up with the British weather in France - maybe next year on our annual migration.
Well we now have free wifi for the coming months (missed it so much in France) but we don't have TV at the moment. Hopefully that will be solved in the next few days - ordered a 1.3m dish which should be big enough - just down to Bruce to find a good fixing point and storage when we move.
Maybe I'll do a bit more of the posting now - would be good to have a female only chat room
WELCOME from me too, and a big hug
Looking forward to your posts Marion, and yes we would love to meet up with you guys next year.
Just a thought Jim, if you have a "girlie" chat room you better get double unlimited bandwidth mate
