£20 caravan update

these pictures are all over the place as my photographer is still training so i appologise in advance for your sore necks

what do you think this is ?
this is the muck out of one cushion after using the new toy to clean them with

this is the box of the new toy and a fabulous thing it is too

these are some of the cushions after being cleaned and dont they look better

it wasnt just the inside stuff that was getting clean this is me scubbing clean the out side
its amazing under all the moss and green stuff its actually white

doesnt that look better - almost respectable now - also you can see in this shot the new electrical hookup i have put in - what you cant see is the new fusebox and circuit breakers on the inside - better safe than sorry

got this bit to sort out next - this is where the zig unit should be but isnt so all i have is a mass of wires with nothing to wire them into - could be interesting this bit

another action shot this - now its a bit cleaner inside we couldnt get all the marks of the walls so i decided to have a repaint - it'll take a couple of coats but it looks better all ready

just an interior shot this to show you what its starting to look like

same again here

Here are the little darlings at morecombe having fun in the sun .The youngs trying out the skate park

here we have a nice random piece of farm machinery

now the secret is to work out what it is and whats it for ??????

been out and about today and went to a bit of a do at the local animal rescue centre - the same one where we got the dog from

it was a good turnout with plenty to do - lets hope they raised plenty of money as its for a good cause

this is the youngest boy doing a good impersonation of a dalmation - can you tell one from the other ?

here we are at last a nice teaser shot of the amazing £20 caravan - this is a before picture as we saw it listed on e-bay
when we got there we realised this must have been an old shot as it was even worse

right - sunflowers

here are some nice pictures of the sunflowers in our garden -

i have these in the garden and do not need to take a drve out and take photos of some body elses

as you can see they are getting kind of big now and havent stopped growing yet

this one here is ten inch across so far and still has some growing to do

this is a nice shot accross the acreage - doesnt it look much bigger without the pool ?

caravan update

worked on the £20 caravan again this weekend and have cleaned and bleached right through - looking a lot cleaner now and smells much better.

opened up and cleaned and polished/repaired all the windows

all curtains have been washed twice now and have discovered they have a pattern on them and they look quite nice

the cushions have come clean also and they to look good

started laying a new floor which is beech laminate and is looking good so far and should be a lot easier to keep clean

it was missing some floor vents so bought some secondhand off e-bay and i fitted them this weekend perfect fit and look good too

also missing was the main electric hookup point so e-bay again but havent wired that in yet as didnt have time but have checked it for size and it does fit

hopefully next weekend i will tackle the electrics both 240 and 12 and see what works and what doesnt and repair as needed

the gas hob is scrap so has gone to the tip and am looking through e-bay again for a replacement

the built in microwave is beond cleaning so have sourced a replacement the same size and will be fitting that

the acreage is doing well the pool is down and put away for now the sunflowers have just started to flower and look great - i picked what beans were ready last week and put them in a bucket and put them out front with a free sign on them and they all went
have planted a second crop of peas just out of interest - lets see what happens

a scooter arrived in the back of a van today its a peugeot , its yellow , and after a few hours it now starts and drives - another project

its all go as usual but all is well with me and mine - hope all is well with you and yours !!!

short one for now
get ready to cringe
went and bought a caravan today
and it cost the grand sum of £20
if you think our gill has her work cut out - thats nothing
all will be ok in the end
no photos - just let your mind run riot
it will get there in the end
