Off today

 Going to the caravan this morning, for a few days, so posts might be sporadic.  Weather is forecast to be hot, hot, hot!  We've got it down to a fine art now, keeping the heat manageable in the caravan.  We open all the windows first thing in the morning, but keep the curtains closed on the side where the sun comes in, opening them and closing others as the sun moves round to the other side during the day.  It helps that we have 2 doors too, we have both of them open if it's very hot - both doors have heavy curtains to keep the sun (and flying insects) out.  We do have 2 electric fans but so far haven't had to use them much, although we might have to on Friday when it's forecast to be very hot.

Husband has worked his socks off in the garden, cutting all the hedges back, mowing the lawns, planting all the veg plants, weeding, erecting cane supports, setting up watering systems and generally tidying up, he's done really well.

Oh, and we're going to look at another car for sale this afternoon, at a dealers not far from the caravan.  We've looked at several now, unsuitable for one reason or another, but both of us have a good feeling about this one.  Fingers crossed.

  2. Hope things go well for you. I am rather envious of the high temperatures which have been forecast for you. Up here it continues to be decidely bleeuuurrghh, there is no residual heat in the soil and once evening comes it does get very chilly.

  4. Yes I soon learned top manage the heat in the caravan that way. Opening and closing curtains and windows. I had a door curtain to keep things warm in Winter, but for Summer with the door open I had a heavily beaded curtain that let the air circulate but mostly kept the flies out.

    Fingers crossed that this car is suitable for you.

  5. If you can keep the caravan cool, that's skill. We battle that here and the air conditioner will be used a few days.

  7. Oh please let this car be THE one to suit you and be trouble-free. I used a beaded curtain to keep my caravan cool and insect-free; now in my bungalow I use a weighted mesh door that does the same job. Keeps insects and occasional birds from flying in, but Betty would be able to pass through because it closes with magnets which cleverly attach to each other again.
