Yum, there's only one thing to do on a cold Friday with a five year old off school poorly - cupcakes.
Think I'll go and have another one..

Happy Half-Term!

There are three things you really don't want to happen at half-term:

Number 1 Rain
Number 2 Car breaks down
Number 3 Electric company turn power off (for whole day)

Numbers 1 and 2 have happened already, Number 3 is scheduled for Thursday... lets hope Number 1 or Number 2 have changed by then!

Mind you, right now there are chips in the oven and a nice den being built under the dresser, so everyone's happy!

Our First Vanniversary!

A year ago this week we traded one of our cars for a bright red VW T4 Transporter - one of the best decisions we ever made (we don't often make good decisions...)

So here are a few of my favourite Van moments from 2009, and here's hoping for lots more to come!

Our first trip - 'wild' camping in the Forest of Dean

Never forget the bacon (or the frying pan)

Nearly there... our epic journey to Mundaka

A gathering of Vans

Dog's breakfast at Putsborough

Balancing act...

I love these photos of impossibly balanced stones - Adrian Gray is the balancer, have a look at his website where he sells prints and cards of his photos, or you can catch him in action down at Lyme Regis.

Breakfast, Bournemouth and Beach Huts

We camped at Hurst View campsite near Lymington, which is open all year (and was surprisingly busy for February!) and after breakfast we headed down to Boscombe to check out the new surf reef ( but there was no surf..)

So we walked along Bournemouth Pier (Molly wasn't keen, she doesn't like looking through the gaps in the floor!)...

Wandered along the beach...

And found lots of lovely beach huts...

I'm having number 233, but remember you can buy your own very specially personalised Beach Hut here!

Cool idea

How cool is this? I had a huge badge collection when I was little, I might go rooting about at my parents' to see if I can find them!
Check out Rockett St George for more great ideas.

Roll on the weekend (is it only Tuesday?)

Yay - we're going away in the van at the weekend - can't wait, hope it isn't raining like today though...
