Some VERY Exciting News...



All has been a little quiet here for a while... but that is because something super exciting has been happening. As usual when I get over excited about something, it completely consumes me. SO without further ado...

WE BOUGHT A 1968 VW T2 CAMPERVAN!


We have spent what feels like a lifetime searching, ringing, making lists, joining forums, going to festivals... but we finally have our bus! We had been watching her on eBay, but due to her unusual paint job had decided not to purchase. The day before the auction ended we realised that this bus ticked EVERY box on our wishlist, so we should not discount it because I thought it was a little ugly. Liam of course loved the paint job anyway! 

The bus is a Devon conversion and almost completely original inside. She needs some love... but overall in fantastic condition! We have had her for two weeks now and have spent countless hours sourcing new parts, making things and ripping things out. We have unearthed some scary things... I am very excited to share our restoration and excitement here and will post an update hopefully at the end of this week. We are dropping her off at the bus doctor's tonight - fingers crossed!
