Happy Easter.... Give me a wave if you see me

Happy Easter.... Give me a wave if you see me

The sun is shining is a beautiful day so after having scoffed my Easter egg on Friday and my family have refused to share theirs , what better time to have a little Easter holiday and to the annoyance of all those motorists who HATE being stuck behind a car towing a caravan I have gone one better...

So for any of you who live in a pretty little village or right by the sea...

If you go out in your car today you might well be stuck behind ME :D

Not supposed to be open on Easter Day

I didnt say it was....:D I didn't say how I got in ....

A ramraid with your scooter? I have heard of it being done!

Reply

More sneakily than that I scaled the building in an unmanned cherry picker , found some heavy duty cutters and a blow torch left lying on the roof then with a length of rope which I just happened to have in my caravan I phoned my OH to lower me into the supermarket mission impossible style and took the tomatoes and lettuce with my gloved hands and left payment in the pineapples..

Oh you are good but I'm surprised you didn't take any alcopops

Reply

Unfortunately I don't drink and if I don't .. Then it would make Sandra and foggy feel guilty if they had any :D

Reply

Foggy can't drink either, goes squiffy at the mere thought of it ;-)

Reply

Oh love it, will send my spies out to A35 to look out.......we have a challenger though , tell all later. Figgyx. Happy travels........ever watchful. ;-)

Reply

Gets out a map for the A 35

;)

Reply

It's very simple, like me.....where it says A35 that's the start and when it doesn't any more, that's the end.......simples.....

Reply

Oh my what if I fall off the end......where will I go ...where will I end up... Slows down to 4 miles an hour so as not to fall off the end..... Strange I can hear loads of cars hooting...must be some procession going on :)

Reply

Fear not, if you fall off the end of the A35 you find yourself on the A30 and if you then fall of that you're in real stick...you'll be off at Lands End !!! Methinks it may take you all week though, but I'll scoop you up , panic not,,,,,

Have a great time, VG, and don't exceed 90mph on Myrtle! Hope the sun shines for you :)

Looks out....nope she's not here in time for lunch......the lambs which were gambolling round my feet earlier in the week are safe for another year ...........phew :D Happy motoring, hope your got your goggles on and flying hat !!

Reply

Just a though, I could sit Poppie on the back as you pass, and you'll be really looking like Wallace and Gromit, hey up lass............goes off to prepare Poppie with goggles etc.......

Reply

I am travelling a little slower after having a picnic by the road with Sandra she fell asleep so some passers by threw her in the caravan and the extra weight is slowing me down .. Hoping to be with you by tea time ... Get the scones and jam and cream ready

Yours drooling

Reply

Will do.......now where's that clotted cream...........goes to pick fresh wild strawberries (despite the fact that nothing but nothing is growing in this bloney weather)to make special jam with........at the rate they're travelling I'll have the jam made, cooled and ready to go........

Reply

Foggy we are here .... Shhh don't wake Sandra we can eat her share ... Scuttles into Foggys for a cream tea

Oh welcome welcome, sorry, just dozed off, make yourselves at home why don't you? See's VG making herself pertly at home in front of the woodburner, scoffing scones, clotted cream, (don't hold back hey VG ;-) ) freshly made wild strawberry jam, and heading toward a rather large chocolate cake...........afternoon VG......what have you done with Sandra? :D

Reply

Rushes to the door......there you are she told me you weren't coming. .......come in. :D

Reply

Ohhh hi San .... I didnt like to disturb your beauty sleep.. Hands San a pile of scone crumbs ,, but there is some cake left... :)

Reply

Don't worry, just made some smoked salmon sarnies and then a batch of fresh scones are about to come out of the oven........ppsssstt VG. Will you be able to get both of you home, you know, what with all the comestibles consumed? ;-)

Reply

Hmm yes If I leave Sandra behind....... Plugs battery charger in and smiles sweetly at Sandra as she comes out of the bathroom :)

Reply

Reply

Hee hee....settle yourselves in, actually if you like you can kip on the sofa the dogs will lend their bed........which is the double one upstairs......and I, well I'll just sit and watch. :-)

Reply

Reply

No nooo foggy you can kip in the caravan it comes with a 6ft single bed , teas made and a TV....

:)

Reply

Ah it seems like Sandra has made herself at home in the caravan.. Ah well nothing for it foggy .. Lead me to the nearest pub .....

Reply

bring back some cans please.

Reply

We have some wonderful scrumpy zzzider here Sandra........hands her a pint glass which will render Sandra senseless in under 10 mins hehehe

Reply

Thinks to herself that VG is clearly not looking where she is going or where she has been as she has passed our village Pub The Tuckers Arms (and they're big arms too) straight opposite the turning to my cottage.............. Eyes open VG !!!!

Reply

We have to be on the move soon to be a Moffys in time for supper.... ...

Reply

Ah ha....so you've come, eaten me out of house and home, and now your off to a party at Moffy's ? Well.........that's a fine old how'd u do........and am I invited to Moffy's , I fear not......last time we got together for cous cous and chicken curry she swore it would be the last time I'd darken her door ......... :-( :-(

Reply

Shoves foggy in the caravan with Sandra and heads off to Moffys.... Anyone know where she lives ????

Reply

Reply

Let me out, let me out, moffy will have a fit if I end up on her door step again, I think I must have really disgraced myself last time.........oooooohhhhhhh deer.....no dear, that's better!

Glad you like the scrumpy Sandra, has it hit the brain yet? Yu are obviously made of stern stuff hehehe

Reply

Reply

You are all welcome at my house - am trying to eat my way through the mountains of food my neighbour keeps bestowing on me! Samosas and chicken curry, anyone? :)

Opens gin and cider bottles - now where did I put the Scotch?

Reply

Ooooooiii Bombay Sapphire I hope, blow the meds, I'm up for one ;-)

Reply

Upps the speed to full and heads down the hill towards Moffys ....ummm why has the caravan just overtaken me?

Reply

Hhhheeeeelllpppp I've just seen VG and Myrtle, surely that's not right, Oh heckski Sandra, we are careering down a rather steep hill and gathering speed 8)

Reply

Chases after the caravan on her mobility scooter........

Reply

Sandra, Sandra, stick you leg yet of the other window and do what I'm doing.......panicking and trying to use my foot trike a brake, but I fear tis not working...........this feels like a monumental disaster in the making

Reply

Shouts ... Look there's Moffys place straight ahead ..if you steer towards her flower bed that will stop you....

Reply

wow! clever use of my arm crutch foggy!

looping it over the washing line soonn stopped us.

Reply

orry vg the 50" tv came off the wall, took your van gogh with it and tore the green baize on your snooker table.

oops!

[thinks] vg / van gogh - ummm!

Reply

Appears from the flower bed looking even more disheveled than normal , with pansys and violas, plus the clearly organic earth in which they were going........Moffy when did you put manure on your flower bed??? Methinks Sandra will not be a happy bunny ........... and Moffy won't be best pleased either ............

Reply

thankfully the gnome we knocked over didn't break.

Reply

oops! sorry moffy, it was your red hat had me fooled :-O are you ok?

Reply

Pulls up gracefully on her scooter and surveys the wreckage .... Tut tut . Why didnt you just pull the emergency brake .... Its that handle there marked do not touch.....Nice hat moffy.... Red suits you.. But you know what they say about red hat.... No ..I can't say it the thought is too much... Heads into Moffys for some Indian supper

Reply

Now you tell us ? Heads off to hide in the hedge so Moffy doesn't see me, the cous cous and Curry incident.......well I am sworn to secrecy, if I told you I would have to kill myself...........or something like that, never been quite sure........,...

Reply

How about you tell us and we will kill the hedge..... ;)

Reply

Easier said than done, it's a pyracantha with socking great prickles on and the hedge will kill you, in the event that I don't have to
