Custom LED awning lights

Custom LED awning lights

When we owned the air awning, I made some lighting for the awning that would be durable, easily removable, yet completely unique. I created 3 lights that housed some multi coloured (RGB) LEDs and the idea was we could choose any colour we wanted when we were in the awning. The lights worked really well, they could either be clipped into the roof or rested on the air beams. However we generally didn’t like the colour they gave off, we couldn’t “dial” in the colour that really looked warm and welcoming. But they did provide light when it was dark so we never changed them. Fast forward to the...

Colapz, collapsable watering can

One of the very first things I realised I needed when we first started caravanning was a watering can. I only realised this after I had to fill the toilet flush tank with 4 kettles worth of water. Over time, however, we have found a watering can a really useful item to have in the caravan arsenal. We use it to clean the windows, top up Chop’s water bowl and recently we have started to top up the Aqua Roll on a daily basis. Another essential piece of kit to have on board is a bucket. It is advised on many sites that you carry a Fire bucket filled with water outside each caravan and of course...

2016. Wet & miserable.

And so here we are. Half way through the first month of 2016. Last year promised so much. Our first year of active holiday making, journeys and adventures in our new caravan. Sadly mid way through the year things didn’t quite turn out that way. With the loss of a dear friend, much loved one and never recovering from that or a £3,000 car bill holidays were cut short in July. We did manage a couple of outings later in the year, but to be completely fair our heart, our passion wasn’t really in it. 2016 however promises to be our time to start again. WE ARE / WE HAVE planned on 9 epic holidays...

North Wales

North Wales

Once every now and again you have a break that really means something. It really resonates with you. Well for us, and especially for me our Trip to North Wales was that holiday. We decided to stay at Coed-Y-Llwyn on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park. It’s a small Caravan club site about 10 miles away from Porthmadog. Its really peaceful and a real gem of a site. Our trip up however wasn’t peaceful, nor was it quick. It took us 7 hours to get to the site. This was in part due to the Bank holiday traffic and road works along the route. However once arrived, set up and settled our first...

Golden Syrup cup cake

Here is a perfect little recipe for a quick pudding. An internet sensation of mug cakes has revealed this little delight. We pre measure the dry ingredients into a zip lock bag and mix when on site. Just a word of warning – you will need a microwave and please make sure your cups are microwave safe – so no plastic or tin mugs. Also the mugs will be super hot so please make sure no children handle them when removing from the microwave.   Ingredients 1 large free-range egg, beaten 8 tablespoons self-raising flour 4 tablespoons sugar 4 tablespoons rapeseed/vegetable oil or melted butter 2...
