Time flies.....

Well how did that happen? I just read my last blog and even I didn't realise it had been so long ! So much has happened !

Firstly a Sunny update, in my last blog things were not going to plan with the fixing of Sunny and things came to a head when the deadline of the festival we needed her for was a week away and she still wasn't going ! So the decision was made to 'do up Myfanwy" instead as she was working mechanically but had no interior whatsoever and needed an MOT . We were due to leave on Wednesday, so a week before  we were due to leave  we started to take out Sunny's interior ready to put it in Myfanwy , who needed a bit of attention before we could re-fit her as she had no coverings on any of her panels, or flooring or cab mats !

She had been owned by a young chap who thought it would be a good idea to cover her in pictures cut from surf magazines !

She was booked in for an MOT on the Thursday before we left, which she failed ! Luckily we have a friend who does welding or we would have been sleeping in the car ! But this couldn't be done until the Monday, which mean't that we had Friday ,Saturday and Sunday to get the interior finished, leaving Tuesday for shopping and packing ...I like a challenge !

Saturday and Sunday were spent making curtains and covering the seat cushions while Husband tried to re-jig the interior which didn't fit straight in as the vans were slightly different inside

but she was beginning to take shape. Monday saw her away all day being welded, so we couldn't work on her interior but I made her a cover for her spare wheel

Then it was off to be re-MOT'd on Tuesday...SHE PASSED !Yay,

So now it was all hands to the pump ! We .....

hung the curtains,

replaced her seat cushions

and just generally cosied her up !

Tuesday evening she was ready to roll

We had an awesome festival and Myfanwy did us proud

So it all came right in the end. As for Sunny, well she is looking a little worse for ware at the moment, but the good news is she is off to live in Devon with number 2 daughter who's partner is a carpenter and they are going to re-build her a new interior and give her some TLC, with a new baby on the way she will be perfect for little family getaways !
