What did you do to your van today?

Finished off the final touches for the Datatag (a windscreen disc holder to show the ne'er do wells - can't call these tax disc holders anymore!) seems a great piece of kit
 
Well put the second coat of cromapol on roof this morning. Spent rest of day still looking for a replacement habitation window!!!
 
Changed the bedding and duvet ... down from 14 to 9 tog ... is this too optimistic?

No! You can always have the dogs to keep you warm? We changed ours from 13.5 to 9 the other day. Did put a blanket in "just in case"!

Checked the tyre pressures and put air in, checked after van been at dealership and re torqued the wheels.
went to top up gas and only took £2.85 (wasn't worth going)
Mrs G put some of her stuff in.
Nearly forgot! Chucked some beer in!:)
 
I finished the clean up after it’s idleness for over two months. Just to load up now before setting off for Chester next week. The warm sunny days have certainly made cleaning a pleasure.

All OK for another year of travelling.

Tried to put some more air in my 'new to me' MH rear tyres.
12v cable on pump doesn't reach.
Extension coming overnight.
 
Tigersealed (mastic) all around newly painted skirt, looks great even if I do say so myself

I checked to see all was well after the alarm activated. I could see no reason for it and it’s never done it before.
 
My CEO/carer/navigator made some sunscreens for the bedroom and living area windows. Very flash. We bought proper Basque deckchair material in San Sebastion a year or so back. She bought silver backed blackout material last week for a backing and stitched them today incorporating elastic tie fastenings. Look really good. Head off on Tuesday for France, Spain and possibly Portugal. Hope we get the weather to try them out.

Wish I was going to Portugal, but Mrs G says we must just do Frogland and leave Portugal for our second tour for the year.
We do have the Santander ferry booked for that trip
