My little bit of this big World

Friday, 14 April 2017


Today we sorted our camper van, 
it's huge as 6'2" hubby can stand up in it. 
 At the very back, this area converts into a double bed.
The blind at the back covers the back doors which we will not use. 
 Lovely kitchen area, with a good under counter fridge
 Looking forward to the side door, more seating
which can be pulled out for a single bed.
 Shower room, with portaloo
 Nice corner basin unit
This morning we started on the van, it was filthy and took loads of soapy hot water to clean everywhere. We were very pleased there was no signs of damp, the van was completely dry.
I started at the back and worked forward, I cleared all the storage area's, the previous owner left loads of stuff we would not use. Now everywhere is looking bright, clean and ready for use.
I am not a fan of red, but the cushion covers are well made and in good condition, so I decided to add blue to tone the decor down, our two throws are tucked around the cushions, the black and white curtains will be replaced, I have to sew the new ones, the lovely curtain at the front of the van has a blue leaf in and will go well, my sister gifted me the curtains.
I gave the shower room a good scrub, we do not intend to use the shower, and will use it as a toilet, I added a new shower curtain, just to add colour to the room.
We were pleased the fridge was working and clean, the microwave we threw away, it was beyond a clean, we will purchase a new one along with a new battery charger for the leisure battery.
All the kitchen ware, towels, sleeping bags all fit in well, I will make a few holders out of denim for the glasses and dinner service, I have loads of different shade of blue jeans to cut up.
We were able to store the awning, inner tent and other items under the single bed bench, all handy to get at, but out of our way.
We are both excited and looking forward to our first trip away, we hope to get away next month.
Su and David came later afternoon with Will, we enjoyed a meal together, and loads of lovely baby cuddles.
Now I am tired, we will have an early night, so tomorrow, I can clean the house before our Spanish visitors arrive on Sunday.
