Yesterday was gorgeous though, but having looked at the forecast for the coming days, we are in for rain - again!
Off down the dreaded M6 this morning to Weston Park near Telford for the model flying show that 'T' (note the new name as his knee is fine now) loves to go to each year. It's where I fell out of the motorhome last year hurting my leg. It still hurts if touched and I have a dent where I bashed it. Hope all goes well this time.
I will be painting the front room when we get back and proudly displaying new curtains, rug, cushions etc.. I have some cheap pictures (if you can call them that) on the wall - well they are cheap it's whether they can pass as pictures that's the issue. They won't match the new colour scheme so I am taking them with me along with acrylic paint, distress inks and stains, stamps, plus a few other bits, and will be trying to alter them.
So my workspace is showing the stash ready for packing.
I hope to be able to link with our wonderful leader Julia's post before we set off. I have tried to comment on several posts for a few weeks now, but Blogger will not let me. Therefore, please accept my apologies if I have not been able to contact you. I have had some advise on what to do but haven't had the chance as yet. I will however, try harder when we return.
Enjoy your trip around the world today, much better than the M6 south!!!!!!

There must be worse places to fall out of a camper van, Weston Park is gorgeous with all the trees and wildlife. (I used to work there altho I rarely went further than the ticket booth!)

M6? I've heard that's a car park and not a motorway! No wonder you're taking so much stuff, stuff I've never seen before, oh we don't get good TM inks near me! Not Fair!! Happy WOYWW

I think you're very brave to bring ink and paint on a trip with you!

I just know **I** would make an absolute mess, lol.

Have fun, and Happy woyww,

Take it easy in that van Joanne, don't want you hurting yourself again! Hope you get your crafting done and that the weather is good for "T"! Thought there was supposed to be a drought in England??!

Great idea to change the pictures to suit the colour scheme. Bad luck about the summer weather - of course drought doesn't necessarily mean hot weather. Just that the rain doesnt' arrive! Hope it holds for your holiday.
