I had a full afternoon to myself here at the van yesterday - no TV or computer on, it was lovely. Husband keeps asking to use my laptop to look at cars, and then reads them all out to me, despite knowing it bores the pants off me, so at least I had a break from that. He took Betty to the vets, her ear infection has cleared up following the antibiotic drops she had last time, so that's good. He then went home to collect the post and a few other things (I'd given him a list), water the plants and check on the roof. He said the roofers are about halfway through, apparently they found one area was very rotten so that needed extra work. He said both front and back gardens are a terrible mess, broken roof tiles, bits of wood and concrete everywhere......I'm trying not to think about that and just hope they'll have cleared it all up by the time we go home at the weekend.
Weather has been very changeable the past few days....a fair bit of sunshine, but quite a lot of showers too, some heavy (it rained heavily a few times last night, which kept me awake). The forecast is good for today, so we'll take Betty for a walk round Cheddar Reservoir.
More owners turned up a couple of days ago, ones we get on well with, so I had a nice time catching up with them yesterday. Our lovely van next door neighbours texted yesterday to say they'll be here in just over a week, so that'll be nice, I shall enjoy them being here, they're such a lovely couple and we have a really good time with them.
The site owner has no particular plans for the Jubilee weekend, I discovered yesterday (I asked his partner) but said he might put some bunting up. He apparently was thinking his daughter, who also lives here on site and helps him with the running of the place, might do some organising, but he'd forgotten she's away on holiday then!
Next year marks 90 years since the site was opened (it's been in the same family all that time, the site owner is the 3rd generation) and he's planning a big celebration then with games, bunting, etc, the family are still working on ideas for it. That should be good, although it will be a busy weekend in summer so might prove a bit difficult for me, I don't cope well with noisy crowds. I can always retreat to my van though, for a respite, and watch from a distance.
