    Did LEJC finish her bathroom?

    Caravan is cleared and packed down for another year. That went quick!

    Pile of sleeping bags, sheets and blankets to wash hope the weather holds. Not looking forward to scrubbing the awning horrible job.

    Not been over for few weeks and few queen wasps were trying to make it their residence. Huge things, I thought it was just one but as Mr TS was taking awning down there were several they seem to like to get under the clip release on the poles. He had to be careful when collapsing the poles down.

    So was moles first year, toads/frogs last year and this year wasps. Hope none of the wasps have managed to make home anywhere in the actual caravan, all the vents etc have been shut up so fingers crossed.

    Very busy thread today and lots of interesting posts about retirement. mhoc -maybe you oh could start a gardening business. Now people are living longer there is great demand for gardeners. You can fit your lifestyle around your business - not the other way around like when you are working full time.
    Locarr - loved your whoopsies. I have been very unlucky this week and thinking I may have to pay full price for bread and cake which is worrying me quite a lot.
