It’s not all Beer and Skittles !!!
For those who think that swanning around Europe visiting exiting places and meeting interesting people is easy, well it’s not all Beer and Skittles. In fact I haven’t played or eaten skittles for months!! To be honest it is quite easy but there are mundane chores to do and as the Bunyip [our motorhome] is getting older there are small maintenance issues to be done. While I am writing this Jenny is busy hanging up the washing after doing the morning dishes. It sound like we had a tough morning but we only got out of bed at 9.15 which is late for us as our usual time is 7.30 and we are normally on the road by 9.30. Today we are at a campsite and this will be our third day here which for us has been unusual as for the past 8 weeks we have mostly been on the go.
In past 8 weeks I have been busy repairing a leaking hatch with some silicon sealant. Fixing a hole where the rain gets in “sounds like a Beatles song”. All of the cupboard door have been reglued in the corners and steel brackets screwed on to strengthen them. Last year I repaired the sink and put a connecting pipe in to drain the water, silly me put a steel one in and of courses it rusted away so I had to replace it with a brass pipe. We bought some l.e.d lights and have them over the kitchen area, dining table and the bathroom we use them when we don’t have electricity. We have also bought a small portable oven which we can use when we have power but this also meant putting a power board near to the kitchen area and running cables up through cupboards and vent space. So you can see that it’s not all play.
So for those feeling sorry for me don’t as I said it’s not all beer and skittles but what I lack in skittles I make up for beer. J
