This morning I met up with S and after a bite of breakfast headed north. We had a quick dash into IKEA to take back some lights then jumped on the M6. It was grim weather so we agreed to meet at Tebay services rather than travel in convoy.
After coffee and pies at Tebay the next stop was GoOutdoors at Penrith to pick up some new lights for the van.
The lights are awesome! Lighting up the whole van. An impulse purchase of a camping toaster has revolourionised my van life! BEST THING EVER!
After the excitement we carried on to Carlisle, after a bit of food shopping we found a geocache then headed for our rest stop.
I put up the lights then started cooking dinner. S meanwhile obsessively tidied my van and hid all the lighting wires.
After dinner we got very excited making toast. Seriously it's amazing, watching the bread and turning it to make sure it's the right level of toasted.
Tomorrow it's off to Edinburgh and Hogmany. I probably won't be posting tomorrow.
Happy New Year!
