So much to do, so little time

Well Easter is nearly upon us and there is the Christening on Sunday and then we are off to France in the van.

So much to get organised and so little time to do it in...

Tonight was a hellish journey home with all the roads blocked by excess traffic - already on their way for their first long weekend break - and the usual hold-ups with accidents (minor ones, I hope).

In hindsight we are grateful that there is the Christening on Sunday because it means that we can't start our holiday until Sunday evening and by that time most of the holidaymakers will already be well on their way. I'm glad that we won't be caught up in the first rush as I can't think of anything worse than spending the first few hours sitting in queues of traffic!

I'm taking my lappie with me so if I manage to hook up to a wi-fi somewhere I should be able to give an update of our first trip away in the van. It is quite exciting and scary at the same time. More than anything I am looking forward to peace and tranquility. France is so motorhome friendly that at least I don't have to worry about not finding somewhere to stop overnight and it is so big that we should be able to find some peace and quiet :-)

Wish us well on our travels - I've been practising my French but I'm still useless at it - but at least I've been trying....
