Last night we were invited for a meal by our host and the conversation included how strange Motorhomers can be.
This is a superb place, 200 acres of meadow and then forest to walk around, horses etc. to watch and nature to enjoy, but 99% of the people who come here arrive midday, the first thing they do is put the TV dish up hunting for the best reception, sit in their van all evening and the next morning, without even stretching their legs and clear off at midday. Why bother to leave home if all you want to do is watch TV?
I told em, my Motorhome forum people are not like that, are you?

We had a lovely walk this morning, then sat outside watching the goats afterwards.

Glad you got away and Motley is sorted.


Have not been on much as we have just arrived back in Katowice after 4 weeks in France and crossing Germany in 4 days.


We noticed the TV behaviour particularly with French MHs. I fitted a TV and did watch it when touring solo in UK, particularly in the 'dark' months(mainly for the news), but in the 7 years Basia and I have been together it has never been on. I now get the news with the laptop tethered to our phone with a liberal Gb allowance, so no need to use TV.


We were fortunate to have a lot of sunshine, and still have. Only downside is lots of fruitflies - have to cover the wineglass, even here in Poland in October.


Enjoy your trip away. Love and kisses - to Hans.


Geoff and Basia

Yep, whats wrong with that if it pleases you?
Some people go hang gliding or bungee jumping but we don't all need to follow their example.

Surely we all drink wine out of a wine GLASS

we don't watch TV when away, nor do we listen to the radio, we just let life pass us by

We forgot to bring the cromecast as well for the TV

But I doubt we would watch it

When we get home TV and Radio 4 are a treat to be resavoured

Just like the house, garden, washing machine and glorious space

A huge kitchen , dishwasher etc and a log burner

Just hope my son and his new family are ready to move out to their own place

But itís theirs to the 30th of Oct

And I suspect a bit beyond

And Iíve yet to meet my new grandson , and so has Shadow

Another member to his family and friends

It's a beer thingy so have no fear 😱
They were given to us 2 years ago on a stop at the football pitch we go to. I left most of them at home, he gave us 2 dozen or so, good job I kept 4 in the van.
It's been blowing here for 2 days, but sunny, unfortunate about the wind because it's blowing the leaves off and it was the autumn colours we wanted particularly to see.

We are walking for about 1 1/2 hours each day, not easy terrain quite steep in places for a couple of oldies. Little Motley is having a lovely time, he is free all the time and is allowed to go down to the stables to see his friend Cash (pronounced Kesh) he stops for a few minutes then he's back here with us. Kesh is a Ruff Collie.
The field next to us has just been prepared with electric fencing for 15 horses, they will be brought down in the next day or two, so we will have goats alpaka and horses to watch.

I don't know why I can't upload photos from the kindle, the other forum I can.
