We picked the car up on Tuesday evening from the garage. It now has a new exhaust, cam belt, poly belt, water pump and was also given a full service. It cost a fortune but as we want to drive it to Spain we had to make sure it was all good.
On Wednesday morning we emptied our last remaining belongings from Elaine's dad's 'bottom room'. We have had lots of boxes stored here for over 2.5 years, now most of it is in storage waiting to go back to Oz and the rest is ...
... in here ...
The car was absolutely packed but we left a little spot for the dogs and a little bit bigger spot for us!
Our boys will fall asleep anywhere ...
First stop was Milton Keynes, where we spent the night at my mother's house,
Sammy was showing her the blog!
This morning we left Milton Keynes and headed to Weavering near Maidstone, where we moored up for the night at Elaine's sister's house! They are in Italy until Saturday night so we have the place to ourselves, plus we now have their dog with us, who the neighbour was looking after.
I was happy with the way the car went - it has now done about 250 miles since it was serviced and all is well. So, my next job of the day was to 'fine tune' the Spanish trip.
This afternoon we finalised a booking on an apartment in Mojacar, booked the ferry for this Monday 13th October and loaded up the currency card, so in a couple of hours the next part of the big adventure was sorted.
For the next few days we will just chill in Elaine's sister's lovely house.
Just checked the weather in Mojacar, 28 and sunny ... woohoo back into the shorts and crocs soon!
