It's nearly festival season and our dear old Volkswagen camper, Gilbert, is back on the road and we're busy getting him ready for an active summer.
Sadly it's probably his last year with us, our 1970 VW Bay is up on the ramps, being restored to her former glory so poor old Gilbert will have to be sold to pay for all the work. I can't wait to meet her, Jon's forbidden me from seeing her until she's fully transformed.
|Yes, we have got a thing about orange.|
In the meantime he's getting a lick of paint and being restocked with more retro camping items to make life on the road more comfortable.
Vintage melamine egg cups 50p from Thursday's car boot sale.
1950's first aid tin, complete with medical supplies
50p from yesterday's bank holiday boot sale.
|Vintage crimplene mini dress by Wendy (yesterday's boot sale, 50p), Liberty silk scarf (Scout jumble sale 5p), Striped over-the-knee socks (Poundland) and original 1970's Dunlop wellies (YMCA charity shop £1.95), Floral bangle (my darling Sarah Misfit)|
Thankfully the boiler's mended and we have water again. Hurrah for fellow classic car owning plumbers who fix things for free.
