Puppets - Great for bored kids on long journeys!

We've just added puppets to our goodies on the website.  We bought our kids a couple and now they can't wait for long trips so "Bob" and "Bluey" can wave a passers by on the motorway (and if you own a campervan you'll know there are plenty of people passing you!).  Our kids even ditched the Nintendos for puppets - amazing, no mention of "I'm bored, are we nearly there yet?"!  I can't promise total harmony but it's certainly given us a few more peaceful trips!  We've got three varieties available,
Baby Birds, Sockettes and CarPets a sample of which are shown here.

Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside!

Right, that's it!  I'm fed up with winter!  I've made this seaside themed bunting to cheer myself up.  Great to hang around your camper van or caravan awning, maybe in the garden....bring on the deckchairs, knotted hankies, fish & chips and sand where you didn't know you could get sand....
Available on my website

One Man and His Campervan

I've just enjoyed the first episode of One Man and His Campervan, a culinary tour of the UK by Martin Dorey in his trusty stead (well, sometimes!), a 1970s VW Bay Window camper.  This trip was based in his home county - Devon and next week is The New Forest.  A little nostalgia for me next week then as we spent many a camping trip there with our parents...happy days!  Lots of handy tips for cooking in small spaces & in the great outdoors.  Check out the link if you missed this weeks episode. . Showing on Mondays at 18:30 on BBC2.
If you have any handy recipes of your own how about sharing them on the blog?
