2 go off to the caravan....

oh how I loved that book of Enid Blytons.. Five go off in a caravan.. I loved the Famous Five books... Joe & I are on on our own little adventure.. down to the sea to the Gypsy caravan for a few days. I am so looking forward to sitting by the sea, dipping my toes in rock pools & going to the movies.. popcorn and choc tops too! I can't wait to arrive late tonight, putting out my lantern at the front door & hanging my peace flags along the quaint little verandah, then tucking us both up under warm blankets while we go to sleep listening to the sea..... Joe is also going to buy me an old pushbike from Inasmuch the local op-shop... so if you see me riding along, hair flaying out the back.. give me a wave!
June is almost here & I hope to be able to open the Land of Fae when I get home.. watch for a link...

Hi!! Just paying a visit to catch up - it's been a while!

I absolutely adored the Enid Blyton books, Famous Five were my favourite - I'm currently reading Hannah some Secret Seven adventures. The wheel turns.
