We've just come back from a holiday in North Yorkshire, just outside Whitby.  I had heard horror stories in the past about the roads in this area, particularly that there is "a road somewhere outside York going up to the coast that is unsuitable for caravans".

Setting up the caravan in a howling gale on Friday afternoon, we noticed that the usual rash of satellite dishes was missing.

We have just returned from the Derbyshire Centre's 3000th rally and 50 year anniversary weekend.  First and foremost, I have to thank the Committee for a really enjoyable weekend with something for everyone.  I must also commend them for their planning for emergencies during the rally, which, sadly were brought into action. On Saturday afternoon, a rallier suffered a serious medical emergency.  The contingency planning went swiftly into action with a team headed by a retired paramedic giving CPR.  Chairs were put around the victim and the first aid team to shield them.  The compere for the afternoon's events asked everyone to move back, which request was immediately obeyed, and the crowd...

At the recent Yorkshire Regional Meet, I was asked why I don't show the calorie value for each of the recipes.  I was also asked if the recipes are suitable for coeliacs and if the local Slimming World counsellor had approved them.  So, here is the long answer for everyone.

An interesting discussion took place in the pub earlier this week all about healthy eating.  As most women in the group are trying with varying degrees of success to loose weight the pros and cons of vegetarian, low fat, low carb and calorie counting diets ensued.

The general agreement was not to follow the high fat 'Dr Atkins' versions, but simply to cut down on bread, potatoes, pastry, cakes, pasta and rice leaving the healthy fish, low fat meats and fresh vegetables. ...

Everyone Can Tow a Caravan - Its Easy

Tags: , , , ,

Every time I tow the caravan onto a site, I find people staring as if a woman should not be driving with her husband in the passenger seat.  Why not - I sit on the left when he is driving. First of all, the breakdown services are there for genuine breakdowns, not a get you home service.  I know of more than one occasion when the breakdown truck was called because the regular driver was unwell and the 'other half' would not tow.  That is selfish and puts up everyone else's cost of breakdown cover. Members of the Caravan Club and the Camping and Caravan Club will be able to...

Wow - what a wonderful weekend Leeds Loves Food proved to be.  Wall to wall sunshine, and food from all corners of the world to sample and enjoy.  The smells of paella, tacos, venison burgers mingled and wafted across the square - delicious. We met so many people who share our passion for fresh local food, simply cooked to maintain its special flavour and high quality.  Thank you everyone who suggested places to shop for good quality food - all over the UK.  We had recommendations from as far afield as Bristol and Northumbria, with plenty from West Yorkshire.  Its going to take me another few days to get all of...
