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....

Blog Tour Stop with Extract - When Polly Met Olly by Zoe May

Welcome to my stop on the Blog Tour for  When Polly Met Olly by Zoe May! I have an exclusive extract for you today!


What They Say:
Polly and Olly were never supposed to meet…
Polly might spend her days searching for eligible matches for her elite list of clients at her New York dating agency, but her own love life is starting to go up in smoke. Even worse, she can’t stop thinking about the very person she’s meant to be setting her latest client up with… surely it can’t get any worse! But then Polly bumps into oh-so-handsome Olly, who heads up a rival agency, and realizes that perhaps all really is fair in love and dating war…
Chapter One
Surely, I’m not qualified to be a matchmaker?!
You’d think getting a job at a dating agency might actually require you to have found love, or at least be good at dating, but apparently not. I’ve been single for three years and I haven’t had a date for six months, yet I’m pretty sure I’m nailing this interview. ‘So, what kind of message would you send Eri…
