 Having a day at home today.  Went to town this morning and picked up a few more bits for the van (husband asked if we'll ever stop spending.....I said, don't know, will you ever stop spending on tools? ๐Ÿ˜‚).  We really don't need to buy much more anyway, it's only small things now.....well, unless we find something drastically wrong when we're doing the other rooms.  The things I bought this morning were mainly decorative items and some other bits, such as cushion pads for the new dining chairs, some spare pillowcases and a carbon monoxide alarm.  We also collected the new kitchen units (flat packed, that'll give husband something else to do!).  He's going to build one of them this afternoon, the other (bigger) will have to be put together when we're at the caravan.

For those of you who have asked - yes I have taken photos of every room in the caravan in the state it was in when we bought it, and will take photos to compare every time we finish a room.  I'll put the appropriate before and after photos on here when each room is completed.

Here are my lovely cupboard door knobs:-

There are 20 in total, a few are duplicated.  I love them! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

My lovely caravan engineer friend came over to the caravan yesterday, to give us a bit of advice.  He also thinks I'm bonkers (but then he knows that anyway ๐Ÿ˜‚), but knows how much pleasure it's giving me and understands why we're doing it.

The site owner sent me an email to say there's a school group camping on site the last weekend in the month, apparently they come every year.  I think we'll stay at home that weekend!

Spending a whole day at the van tomorrow to try and get all the necessary stuff done in one go, rather than going again on Sunday - we need to get the kitchen gutted, one of the twin beds framework and mattress out, and the kitchen and bathroom carpets out, so that the man and van can take everything away on Monday morning.  Obviously we'll have to take Betty with us tomorrow, she'll have her new bed, she's got plenty of food and treats over there and I bought another couple of toys this morning to keep her occupied.

Thank you for the kind comments on my lovely purple sofa - on reflection, I do think the grey fleck carpet probably was the better choice - purple fleck may have been too much with the purple sofa.


  1. What, there can be too much purple in the world? ;) Splendid, doing exactly what you are, it pleases you , so it pleases me.

  2. OH, OH, forgot the knobs....they will make you smile every time you use/see them, how can that be a bad thing?

  3. I LOVE, love, love those knobs! They'll certainly add a certain je ne sais quoi to the caravan. So good to hear your new-found enthusiasm, you sound like a new woman! xx

  4. I loves yer knobs!!! I replaced the boring ones in my caravan too - mine were glass ones, all very prettily decorated. I can feel your delight in what you are doing to make the caravan your own; don't listen to anyone who says you're mad (even if you are!) I'm so looking forward to the 'before & after' photos.

  5. Those knobs are divine, I am so looking forward to seeing them in place. I am so glad you are happy and are enjoying the process.

  6. I too love your new kitchen knobs!

  7. lovely knobs!
    looking forward to the before and after pics!
