This week I am back at thelodgecl in Colchester. We stayed here a few years back and have fond memories. Since we were here last site owners Paul and Caron have added a nice toilet block complete with laundry, ideal for the fulltimer. There is also a very reliable broadband connection included in the nightly charge of £10. Each pitch has it’s own water tap and grey water dump. I am shooting some family portraits and it’s been nice seeing regular customers again.
I popped in and saw our friendly tyre fitter, Mark the tyreman of Grimsby and got him to fit a couple of new tyres onto the front of the van, wow what a difference, much smoother.
If you are wondering why I have posted a photograph of my breakfast its because I have just set up my Iphone4 to post straight to the blog. I can’t believe, really that I have not done it before! 5 years ago whilst at my inlaws I first discovered mobile internet. Of course its not common place but back then even T Mobile, our then provider were denying it was possible but I was connecting. I have used wordpress since 2008 and yet its taken me months to get around to linking the Iphone to wordpress via a free app. Its going to be great, expect more posts, regular posts, throughout the day, hope you don’t get bored lol.
Where it will be great is with a new blog I am bout to launch at www.myweightlosspal.co.uk. For the past two weeks I have been on a diet. Now with the diet I did find an app, one called myfitnesspal. You enter everything you eat and it works out the calories and everything. In the last two weeks I have lost over 10lbs. Now although 10lbs is only a small percentage of my weight, I was 24st 7lbs when I started 10lbs is making big changes to my life. No longer do I feel exhausted. My body aches less and I feel less stressed. It also helps to eat more regulary and better meals rather than snacking.
We have just been on a working trip to Essex. Shona and Jessica came to and we parked up on Mum’s drive. One of the great things about FlowerRozy is her size, she can go anywhere a medium sized car can go. Shona and I canvassed an estate called North Melbourne. We shot 7 great families (with a camera that is) and I am looking forward to heading back to deliver them in a couple of weeks. We are offering a really superb deal at the moment. We managed to get hold of some 30 inch stretcher bars at a great price so we are focussing on 30 inch X 20 inch canvasses. No idea if they will sell well but we will see.
FlowerRozy handled herself really well and we slept like logs. The new gearbox is settling in and my mind is working overtime on how to fit some external storage systems. I fancy one on the rear door that opens out into a bench to ahve a BBQ on. We would also manufacture an awning to go on the back. On the top there is room for another storage box but I also want another solar panel so I guess the answer is to manufacture a box with a flat top and put the solar panel onto that. Some careful planning to do.
I saw this post on www.motorhomefacts.com (click here) by very well know motorhomer Don Madge. He has a storage system on the rear door of his panel van and I like this design as it still allows for the opening of the door
Don’s van is in at Timberland Motorhomes being resprayed at the moment but when it comes back I would love to see it.
