~home alone~

swampy went off to vanfest today~the first time we have both not been there helping for the build up in a decade. a friend drove down to pick him up and i sent him off with his little tent, airbed, sweets and copy of philip pullmans 'the subtle knife'.

every year it is a great gathering of friends from across europe who join up to help in the week long build up until the public in all their weird and wonderful campers turn up and then work throughout the show until the public all go home again on sunday. we have friends come from as far as germany and holland and this year i will miss seeing them and catching up with news.

and of course i am desperately missing swampy already, cody is very unsettled and keeps walking out to stare at the front door~at the moment he is curled up on the sofa next to me...dreaming dreams that springer spaniels dream...

i have my last essay to work on this week and as it is due in next tuesday i think i will find an empty house useful for keeping my focus. we have also pretty much decided on what our next camper will be and have started to plan our new interior. so i shall be spending some time looking out the things we need and planning the layout.

thank you all of you who have commented with your own tales of your campers and much loved vehicles~its nice to know my crazy feelings are not my own!
