Hopefully I’ll have enough … Continue reading Autumn, Knits & Mental Health

I was a fool to sleep in it then, but I needed to visit my dear old mum in her care home. First, I brought some insulating board from Wickes which was then cut to size. All I had was a piece of ply … Continue reading Insulating my Campervan.
