Woo! Scary!

With winter getting ever nearer, we’d got to the time of year when it’s dark by the time I get home from work in the afternoon and usually too bloody wet’n’cold at the weekend to go out and work on the van, even if I wanted to. So work on Herman has pretty much stopped for the next few months, until I come out of hibernation again.

That’s not to say he hasnae had an adventure or two. At the end of October, he enjoyed his first ever Whitby Goth Weekend -even adopting a broomstick on his radiator, a scary plastic skull wall-hanging in his back windows and a pumpkin lantern to glow eerily in his front window at night [Said pumpkin lantern powered by an LED nightlight. We’re not so dumb we’d leave a candle burning in an unattended van overnight!]

By the way, we didnae camp out in Herman at whitby. There’s far too much tarting up and ‘clothes crisising’ to be done, so we need a proper B&B room. It would just get silly in the back of a van.
