Unread post by Oumie » Wed May 31, 2017 5:51 pm

Was a year ago we made the reservations.....could not wait....now not long to go...53 days and counting :dance:

Busy with making rusks....a bit early but want to make sure we have enough :lol:
Caravan cleaned (again) fixed the curtains....found that people could see through them into the van....I sewed on a total block out material at the back of them, now nobody can see in anymore 8)


We might leave earlier in July for our holiday 8)

I love the planning part almost as much as the trip itself Oumie! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Enjoy baking those awesome rusks, and I'm glad you fixed those "see through" curtains, since there seems to be "peeping Toms" in Kruger! :lol: :lol:

I will be doing the same! Might tie the ribbon on both mirrors in case I am brave and do some driving but not likely!
