I have only towed once before and once getting Daisy on the drive. It was something my husband always did.
Still with a huge to do list, I picked a weekend where I was mini people free to hitch up and go!
Pitched up next to my best mates, 1968 Sprite Major so just a year younger and in a much better state!
Ditto my Volvo hadn't towed before so just before setting off on my own I did get really nervous!
She towed her really well and I felt so free. Knowing I can do it on my own and will be able to stay caravanning for me and my mini people!
Me and my bestie went for a walk around the beautiful Abby, which is free to do and then for a drive in his amazing Moggy!
This is how happy I was when he said I could drive her, I have the coolest friends! I can't wait to do a video on her for you all but he won't let me till one last job is finished!
As you can see, Margo still has loads to do and even currently has a lightening board on but she's on the road and being used for the first time in more than 20years!
I have only 2 more curtains to make (I ran out of backing) Its so wonderful to get all my bits in the caravan and what I have found is there is so much room and storage!! LOADS. Its fun to try things in different places to see what would work and fit where.
Had a lovely view of the Abby from my van too!
She is completely perfect for me and my three mini people. I couldn't have picked or found a more perfect van.
She still needs another coat of paint on the walls and ceiling, loads of jobs but she's rolling on her own wheels and new a-frame!
Am a little in love with the Babycham beer mat...this may go for a walk about to my van if he's not careful...
Yes this has been my first chance in years to have a drink with friends......
So after I cooked dinner in my Major, we headed back for drinks in James.
When I say drinks, I mean a LOT of Babycham.
I was feeling pretty sleepy the next day, but my eyes where green which means I was showing how happy and relaxed I was in the van.
What do you do when your away without your mini people, take loads of photos of your self it would seam! Am not used to being in the videos of when we have gone away, so I wanted to make sure I was in this one!
I spent the most part of Sunday, laying in the sun drinking coffee and playing records. I don't remember the last time I was truly this relaxed.
If you don't have a sun lounger, get one, wow! It was so lovely!
It was lovely to chill out and we had our pick of Majors to sit in! I loved looking for the small differences in just one year. Drawers are so different in the 1968 compared to mine!
The fabric is just so perfect and you would think it came with the van, so different to my yellows in Margo.
Lots more work to do on Margo but so worth it. Just one night away and it was like the world had lift from me. I can't wait to get traveling in her this year and to finish a few more jobs on her!
Am truly lucky to have such wonderful friends and this one is pretty much my little brother. Thank you for all your help with Margo!
Here is my video!
