Did you see the Food Inspectors on BBC1 on 9 January?  Quite apart from yelling at the screen that the carrots direct from the producer's field had to be healthier than the lettuce boiled in what amounted to a swimming pool, the program sent me into a fit of spring cleaning my own kitchen, and that got me thinking about the caravan.
