The Club on the telly and spring in the air

Candy was explaining to the presenter of BBC series Great British Railway Journeys about the origins of the Club, and a fine job she did too!

Ted watching tellyAs you can see, I was engrossed, and while the maid scrambled to find her camera, I watched intently from my perch on the ‘buffet’, as the chauffeur calls it. However, after a couple of shots the maid’s camera battery failed. Honestly, you just can’t get the staff these days!

Now we’re into February, it feels like spring is truly on its way. We’ve seen daffodils flowering early and even blossom on some trees, so it must be almost time to get Milly the caravan out of storage and check her over.

Ted is feeling festive

Ted at ashbyAs you’ll know, Cumbria has come off worst over the past few weeks, with devastating floods followed by snow last weekend. So it would be lovely to think that kindhearted caravanners will support this beautiful county’s economy over the Christmas period.

Quite a few Club Sites around the country are staying open over Christmas and into the New Year six of which are in the Lake District. The Eskdale Site, for example, is open until January 13, and is set in beautiful countryside with plenty of dog-friendly pubs (no doubt with roaring real fires!) to enjoy after a bracing winter walk.

Ted at CranwellIt will be Kizzy’s first Christmas and she is already enjoying the festive feel mainly wuffing at dogs on TV that are advertising seasonal gifts and products. There seem to be so many animals on the telly at the moment that we rarely get to watch anything in peace!

Blanket ban on a new ‘van!

Ted with Milly the caravanApparently they have been on the verge of buying one a 2006 Bailey Burgundy Series 5, to be exact onmore than one occasion. But each time they have wavered before committing to buy, and I think it’s because they don’t want it sullied by dirty dog paws!

So I think we’ll be having a few outings in Milly early next year to see whether she is big enough to take two people and two dogs. Kizzy, the annoying yet playful Westie, hasn’t been on holiday yet, although she has enjoyed a couple of day trips to the beach.

Since we lost our beloved Molly, my fellow border terrier, in April, a lot has happened and holiday time has been shortlived. But we’ll be looking forward over the winter to places where we can take Milly a small Avondale Dart plus a smashing awning that the chauffeur managed to snap up for £50, and which still has not been put up on site.
