I haven’t blogged for a while as I’ve had a bit of a low with my ME/Chronic Fatigue and little Lily’s had a week long tummy bug, meaning lots of carpet cleaning (eugh) and an expensive trip to the vets. After lots of rest I’m getting back on my feet and Lily’s feeling much better and thoroughly enjoying her probiotic meat paste.

I’ve made a tough decision and have decided to sell my Vintage at Goodwood tickets. I so wanted to go, but decided that finishing the new house should come first and having already had an amazing holiday to New York this year and lots of mini breaks, I couldn’t really justify spending more money enjoying myself. They’re worth £300 with their camping passes and I have just sold them on Ebay for £140, which can go towards getting my front garden turned into a parking spot. Originally I had intended the front to be a little courtyard garden, but with visitor’s parking scarce I’ve decided to have the ground made ok for a car and some stones put down, with an old sleeper acting as a kerb/separator between the parking spot and a couple of vintage Belfast sinks.
I’m also in the process of putting slate down around my shed and in some of the flower beds to make them look a bit neater. All the untidy woodchip was driving me mad and the previous owners had left me eight big bags of slate behind the shed. I also desperately want a vintage caravan for the back garden and I definitely have the space, but how to get one in when you’re surrounded by houses and gardens? Most people would give up at this point but my eccentric family said ‘no problem, just get a crane to drop it in’, so in a year or so, a crane it will be. I’d eventually love one like the one below, but will need to be looking for a reasonably priced one that needs some TLC. After all, it doesn’t need to be road worthy, since it will be going nowhere once it’s plonked into my back garden. There’s a lovely old caravan sat on a driveway near my uncles house and I’m very tempted to pop a note through the door suggesting they sell it to me, lol.
