All Aboard!

Our 'Helicopter Hero'!

From our vantage point, opposite the RAF Airbase, I often hear the familiar whirr of the rotating blades and watch as the orange form of the Magpas Helicopter rises up, like a giant flying dragon, above the tree tops. My mind can't help but wander; picturing the crew, fully briefed, adrenaline...

Busfest.... Back by Popular Demand!

As I closed the door on a well stocked fridge, double checked the waterproofs (some of you will remember the previous debacle!) and settled both dog and child in the back, I felt stirrings of excitement in the pit of my belly. It was finally here, the long anticipated 'BusFest' weekend and this...

A Campervan fit for a Kingsman!

It's not often that the world of Cambridge Campervans brushes with the world of celebrity; however on a Saturday afternoon this summer it did just that. I had, in fact, closed for the day and just arrived back at home when I took a call from a couple who were super keen to come and view a van....

If you keep on digging you'll reach New Zealand....

Many times as a child, merrily digging away on the beach, I recall my father telling me 'If you keep on digging you'll reach New Zealand!'. At the tender age of five, New Zealand was a magical, far flung place which was both exciting and yet to me, intangible. I also truly believed one day my...

Family Camp Fun with Beavers, Cubs and Scouts

When my eight year old son brought home the letter from Cubs inviting us on 'family camp' I envisaged a muddy field, men in shorts and long socks and watery stew in a less than clean looking receptacle. How wrong could I be....... On Friday night as we left MacDonalds (a kind of 'last supper')...
