Update on Yolo the Eco Bus.

Hi all! I am so, so sorry I am being a very absent blogger!

As you know, we have been converting our bus in preparation for our big adventure. Well, I really didn't think it would be soooo time consuming, but my goodness, is it!

We are wood panelling the whole interior and each piece of wood has to be cut and measure with such precision due to the fact that the whole bus is curvy and it's an absolute nightmare and takes forever! Progress has been very slow the past few weeks but things have started to fall into place for us to finally finish our home.

Lots has changed though. We now have a settee with cushions, I just need to get the covers and matching curtains made. Storage has been built and plans for use of the garage are being sorted out. We're picking fabrics and colour schemes now, which is fun! We also think we have decided not to travel very far very fast. We think we may either get a plot of land and just live off grid OR we will meander slowly to wherever it is we want to go. Like, maybe take a month to drive to Cornwall and then a month there and a month back again. We don't know for sure yet.

I do know this, Timehop has told me that a year ago today was the very first day we woke up in our teeny tiny caravan! That's mad! I can't believe it's been a whole year since we gave up our flat and decided to be Peripatetic digital nomads. Best move ever!

So, now that that's out of the way, I shall bombard you with photos of the progress of Yolo the Eco Bus!

Curved doorway, needs trim.
 


 Wood burner, made of gas bottles.

 Kitchen with new shelf and LED lights.

 Storage unit.

 Bedroom, these are the terracotta candle heaters I mentioned in an earlier blog.

 We used to own a nightclub called 41 King Street, so Yolo is the number 41 bus!

 5ft projection screen. We have a micro projector aimed at a cream curtain for our tv (will eventually be on a screened window).

 Settee and fridge cabinet in progress. That grey box is my fridge, run on gas and has a pilot light! Weird!

 Bedroom, mandatory bookshelves, which are no creaking with too much weight!

 My fave part of the bus, the curved ceiling in the lounge. All done by hand, very beautiful!

 More bedroom book shelves!

 Settee and fridge cabinet done. I have better cushions now.

 The garage, which will eventually be where the shower room and toilet are.

 More curved ceiling and crappy temporary curtains.

 After old settee, before new one. We sat on garden furniture for a few weeks!

 
 Are you bored yet? Sorry, but this is why I've barely blogged or read anything in months!

Sooo, now you're caught up with our lives... I shall try to blog again soon. More about our day to day life and the costings etc....

Review - Sofa, So Good; Me Life Story by Scarlett Moffatt

I am so, so excited to be bringing you my review of Sofa, So Good; Me Life Story by Scarlett Moffatt!!

What They Say:
Fact: Did you know, over its lifespan, your sofa will witness roughly 293 arguments and 1,369 cuddles?
Hiya, my name's Scarlett Moffatt and I love random facts. Almost as much as I love sitting on me sofa. You might know me best from my most famous and celebrated sit thus far on the I'm A Celebrity throne. You might also know me from all sorts of other seats, most especially my Gogglebox sofa. Well this book is my attempt at telling me life story through a whole series of them!
So I'd like you right now to stop what you're doing and take a seat, whether it be in the comfort of your own home, on the top deck of the bus, on the tube (so you don't have to make eye contact with anybody) or on the throne of the house (a.k.a. the toilet). I want you to get comfortable and get ready to laugh, cry and maybe even learn a bit, as I chat to you about some of t…

Blog Tour Stop with Review - The Silent Children by Carol Wyer

Amazon Links

What They Say:
The boy studied the bruise turning yellow at the base of his neck. With quick fingers his mother tightened his tie, and pulled his collar high above it. Her eyes alone said, We will not speak of this...

Years later, a man is found shot dead in a local park. On his phone is a draft text: I can’t keep this secret any longer. The recipient is unnamed.

Detective Robyn Carter knows this secret is the key to the case, but his friends and family don’t offer any clues, and all her team have to go on is a size-ten footprint. 

Then a nurse is found in a pool of blood at the bottom of her staircase, and a seemingly insignificant detail in her friend’s statement makes Robyn wonder: are the two bodies connected, and has the killer only just begun?

When another body confirms Robyn’s worst fears, she realises she’s in a race against time to stop the killer before they strike again. But just as she thinks she’s closing in, …
