Hello there and thank you so much for visiting me today. In response to my post title, Yes I have got news for you.....so I do hope you will bear with me whilst I witter on!
Ok, where to start......so you know that feeling when you're really happy with your DT work, you feel like you're on top of everything and you're actually really enjoying it - then you notice that one of the challenges that you always look out for, and look forward to, is holding a DT Call.....and that little voice at the back of your head says "why not give it a go" - well I had one of those moments, and guess what, I was only invited to join the team!!!!

In other news, we have a new addition to the family.....not another dog or small person but a 4 berth caravan! When I was young we had an Alpine Sprite, and had some wonderful holidays with it and these memories are now very special to me. For many years it had been a pipe dream for Alistair and I to have a little caravan of our own and we recently decided to take the plunge. We decided to be fairly sensible and go for a decent second hand one, while we are finding our camping feet.....and we have just had our first little weekend away with it. I am happy to report that despite a few hiccups getting the awning built up (this involved a fair amount of headscratching, staring at diagrams, glaring at each other, throwing poles down in a strop, sulking in the car for 10 minutes, more head scratching and then almost bursting into tears of joy when an old chap shuffled across the field, having seen us struggling for a while and ended up helping is put it together in no time at all) we actually had a really enjoyable and very relaxing time.
as you can see Nippy is already taken with this
we were staying at a campsite in a beautiful part of Kent surrounded by endless countryside, so had some wonderful walks with the dogs.
We are hoping to have another long weekend away in the next few weeks, so maybe I will have more tales to share with you.
If all this wasn't enough, I was also lucky enough to be the winner of the April Lili of the Valley challenge winner and I have mentally spent my voucher several times over - I love that LOTV now have digi stamps too.
If you're still with me.....thank you for taking the time to read my ramblings, have a great day xx
