Beautiful! Enjoy that view and the lovely air of the Pennines. 

I’m convinced the hills there helped daughter built up the stamina and lung function she needs for her professional brass playing after her donor bone marrow transplant!

, I have found homeopathic treatment an absolute godsend. It helped greatly with side effects of chemo and with the subsequent depression. I think someone who specialises in cancer is better. I go to the NCIM in Bristol, sometimes in person and often via Skype.

, I needed help ! Xxx

Onwards and flatwards (don't do hills) and keep walking if you can!

Hi Moomy 

we had our caravan for ten year now since I retired and spend about 70% of our time there .So peaceful and those hills are never ever boring .

It has encouraged us to embrace the outdoor life ,and keep moving . I've missed it so much the last four weeks and will disappear over the A66 as soon as I get review . 

Think I need to gat off rollercoaster for a little while and chill .

love and hugs 

xoxo

We used to caravan, but touring. We all loved it but it’s been too much for hubs now for a few years so we sadly sold up quite a few years ago and now rent cottages instead. It was a great time while our kids were young and they loved it.

enjoy every moment

Just come home from a couple of days in the motorhome at Bridlington.weather was great sunny and breezy. Proper burning weather. Took the grandchildren. It was glorious,old style,fish and chips ice cream and rides. Went with Motorhomers, so lots of friends helping us keep an eye on the girls.as we are retiring this is the last time we will have to cut short our time for work.

I'd rather be polishing a Red Arrow.

Years ago I used to holiday in a touring caravan. At one time it was pulled by a Mini. Got lots of stares from drinkers in pubs and passers by. Great holidays, but had to sell when family circumstances changed, ( 2 divorces) Too old to do it now, and very happily married. (3 years) Stay in cottages now, Happy walking/ outdoor activities everyone xxxx

Our first touring caravan was 9 foot 2 inches long and we towed it with a Morris Minor estate! (A ‘Woody’) it struggled up the hills but was replaced by a much bigger car and then we replaced the caravan too for a bigger model...

no walking for me at the mo, rather too bruised and sore after a fall this morning....

Had a rather horrid journey from Plymouth to Bristol, lots of trafgic jams. I don’t cope with them well, and we were almost late for my appt. Ended up having a meltdown in  the waiting room while trying to eat a  late. lunch sandwich and grab a drink . Wasn’t  helped by a. call on route from the builder saying that one of the plumbers had unplugged the freezer! It was full of food cooked by lovely DH. Quite a problem because I am on very restricted diet and need food specially prepared. Someone is going to pay!!!

The consult went well and the rest of the journey seems to be going well

Oh @moomy.  Hope you are ok after your fall.  Ice packs and take it easy.

- travelling can be so stressful.  Hope you are home safe and well.

enjoying family holiday and have seen grandson playing on beach.  Can't make it down to the sea but they have been taking videos.  He loves it!

Sending love to all, I must say I am letting myself down at the moment... I have not got back into walking yet, it has been nearly 2 months I reckon, hoping its not more.  I am 'trying' to be productive.... 'trying' is the right word... I have been trying to clear, throw (that's not happening very well) putting 'stuff' aside for a car boot sale hmmm (will I ever do a boot sale, last one I went to I came back with more than I had sold arrghhh).  

How can I do this.... how can I let this 'stuff' go, I know the half the problem is I have got too much and my mind is not in a good place, I mean, who on earth starts to 'collet' the pull top drinking top off the bottles of water.... my mind is saying these are too good to be thrown away, and they will fit on to 'other bottles' ..... okay, so keep 6, 7, 8 even.... but not 20 and counting arrrghhh.

Feel free to skip past this post hahahaha skip, walk, run even hahaha.

, so sorry to hear of your journey and more so your meltdown... don't beet yourself up over it, they are normal now and so easily triggered... because 'we want everything to go nice and smooth' - yet all around tries to be trying hard to sabotaging. Well, deep breaths you will get though this.  I think of it like the 'devil' is trying to pull you on to his side, so he is trying every way to spoil what you are doing, to make you turn to him..... well two fingers to him!! hahaha

Oww I better go, maybe I should start a 'Fruit Loop' thread for those of us that 'have lost the plot' hahaha.

Sending love to you all xxxxxx and relax xxxx

Thank you . I was quite embarrassed about it ,but today is a better day. Had a lovely meal out when we got home, builders are making great progress, and a bit of order is coming out of the chaos. I do hate it when you can't find anything though. I found I was so tired I just had to go back to bed after lunch, and at least I can think a bit straighter now. Half unpacked.

Take care, and I hope yiu ge t rid of a bit more stuff From one hoarder to another xxx
