Well, this is a first. I am writing during daylight hours, it feels like a guilty pleasure. Normally the farm, holiday cottage and horses take up every minute of the day and writing is carried out under cover of darkness if at all.
So I have tidied and organised the workshop….a place for everything and everything in its place. I’ve blitzed the office and thrown away old invoices going back to the 1970’s (prices have hardly changed) and I have been renovating a static caravan to convert into a bunk house for walkers. The outside looks….like a static. The inside looks like a lovely cottage with fantastic views. We took out all of the fitted seating. Why do static caravans sleep 4 - 6 but have seating for about 20, seems like a big waste of space. We’ve put in a wood burner with a groovy fireplace and redone all the electrics, gas and water. Virtually every job cost more than the actual caravan. Builders had been living in the static while renovating a house for the previous owner so it was ‘minging’, won’t describe in too much detail for those with delicate constitutions. Safe to say I was dressed as if Covid 19 was active several months before it was. Squeaky clean now though.
