Home again….

So I’ve been very lax lately in keeping the blog up-to-date – I’m sorry!

We are actually home now, and have been for a whole week.  We did stay in the van for a few days, but moved into the house last Thursday.  We’re slowly getting everything together – we actually managed to finish emptying the storage unit this afternoon (after about 10 trips using a Golf estate and the little white car towing the little trailer!)

Anyway the reason for this post is just to let you know that I will be posting about the last month or so of our adventure as soon as I can, but at the moment it’s all a bit hectic.

People keep asking how it feels to be back in a house after 9 1/2 months on the road.  Surprisingly I just feel very relaxed about it (although I didn’t on our 1st afternoon back when we went to the house and realised just how much work we have ahead of us!)  Calv is a little less relaxed than me – he keeps saying to me ‘Let’s just get on a ferry and go..!’

What I have left to tell you about includes the north coast of Northumbria, Holy Island, straying into Scotland, a few days in the lakes, a short trip to Blackpool and a quick return to the Dales (to see Malham Cove and the limestone pavement).

I’ll also put together posts on our favourite spots to visit, best beaches etc. and finish off my campsite reviews.  Hopefully by the time I’ve finished these we’ll be off again.  The aim is to return to Scotland to explore the Highlands and Islands around April time.

Keep travelling 🙂
