The sun was out, the sky was blue. We came back from a day trip to the seaside to find a letter from Caravanman.
Forms, instructions, an invoice.
I don’t often get excited by bills, but this one had me looking forward. Soon, we’d be heading west regularly, stocking up the throws and cushions and sleeping bags and blankets. Cleaning away the winter uugh. Letting in the air and the sunshine.
Bored children and board games. Walks on beaches. Waking up in the wild. No wifi.
Soon, soon, it will be soon.
In the last few weeks we’ve had rain, more rain, cold and then more rain. More recently there’s been snow, ice & blizzards. The temperature hovers around freezing point. We have a snowman in the back garden. The top of a hill in the middle of nowhere will have added wind chill.
Nobody in their right mind is planning on caravanning any time soon.
We will visit over the Easter weekend.
We need to pay Caravanman.
