Walnuts And Wheelnuts

It’s been six months or so since The Walnuts arrived back home from our Motorhome tour of Spain and France and we’ve just started preparing for our annual evening at the Pearson Hall  (23rd November, tickets £15, get in touch with brianmscott@msn.com if you’d like tickets. We’d love to see you!).

Freestyle Breakfasting

This morning is like a thousand other mornings.

6 am Alarm
6.15am Plunge cafetière and deliver coffee to Mrs Seven Songs
6.30am Showered
6.45am Dressed
7 am Leave for the train station – although I sometimes spice things up by leaving at 7.15 am for a later train!

Some days I don’t even have a shower, although that is pretty much fixed to Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Matt and Fergus are up front, eyes on the road, discussing the best things to dunk in tea. I’m just enjoying the rattle and hum of our Bailey’s Advance camper.
