Peterborough Motorhome Show

We set off on the Friday morning to the Peterborough show ground for the annual motorhome show, we had been here on a number of occasions and it was Jean-Luc’s first real trip last year, we managed to get him well and truly stuck, so this year we hoped we would be able to drive […]

A Quiet February

We had known the start of the year was going to be quiet as the van, Jean-Luc, was going back to Highbridge for the habitation service and some warranty work.

What I did not count on was being quite ill through most of February, in fact we only managed to get away for a brief […]

A Quiet January

Jean Luc has gone back to Highbridge for his habitation service and some warranty work, we are not sure at this point how long he will be away but it is fair to say not much is going to happen this month.

All is not lost as we are having an external BBQ gas point […]

Christmas 2016

Well here I am sat in Jean-Luc looking out at a miserable day with the rain and wind blowing across the site at Sumners Ponds in Barnes Green, we have put Christmas on hold for the day as Tracey is working so for us Christmas will be tomorrow, Boxing Day, with all of the trimmings.



Dawlish is just two miles from where we are staying and a quick bus ride took us to the town centre where there was a seasonal flavour to the street market that lined the main road through the town.

We decided to have a long weekend away and as Exeter has three Christmas markets over this first weekend of December it seemed to be the natural choice.

We set off on the Thursday afternoon and made good progress until we passed Poole in Dorset and then we hit the fog, I am always amazed […]

Germany 2016

Germany 2016 was to be our first trip abroad in Jean-Luc, we had been to the Isle of Wight in the Delaware but that doesn’t really count, so we set off to Portsmouth for the Thursday overnight ferry to Le Havre.

I have to say I was nervous going abroad with Jean-Luc after all he […]

The Norfolk Show

The Norfolk Show was a great weekend with quite a nice setup and for a change the sun was in full attendance, quite differant to Peterbourgh and the mud that I am still trying to eradicate from every nook and cranny!


Roast Pork and Potatoes on the Cobb

The Cobb was the preferred […]

Peterborough 2016

Our first real trip away in Jean-Luc was to the motorhome show in Peterbourgh, we had done little mileage and this would be a good 400 miles round trip, we like Peterbourgh and have visited the show the last three years. I will say we had been lucky and the weather had favoured the fair […]
