After finally moving the few cubic metres of earth tp make room we moved that thing into place. It was quite an adventure, but I better not go into detail in case the local traffic police read my blog.
Suufice to say that the caravan was given to us by our friends Sarah and Alex, who inheritited it with their house some 30 km up the valley. The previous owners had left a load of stuff in it, which in turn has now passed into our possession. Some of this stuff is and will be useful, others bits less so. Some of the things you may spot on the little slide show below, including numerous board games, pots and pans as well as camping crockery and cutlery, various types of glue, hundreds of light bulbs, bedding, towels, various shoes, some my size, some Susan's size, some someone else's size, 2 wooly hats, 2 pairs of wooly socks, 2 baseball caps, one of them inscribed 'Spice Boy', 2 pairs of brand new swimming goggles, a set of party hats, a beach ball, an iron board and iron (I've never ironed anything in my life!), a pair of half length corduroy shorts my size, a catering size can of instant coffee approximately 37 years old (I hate Necafe), 27 packets of painkiller, 17 bottles of suntan lotion plus numerous creams, potions and lotions (ask Susan about the details...)...
So Sarah and Alex, if you recognise any of the above as unintentionally left, say so now and if anyone else use for one or the other of these items, we may have some spare. Ask for details.
Well, we moved that thing, now we just have to clean it and tidy up. Cousin Barti is off on a well deserved holiday next week and is going to be replaced by two helpXers who will be the first to stay in there.
