Week 42

Day 288 – Friday 21st December 2018

A beautiful day, very little wind so it was really warm in the sunshine.

The Bermuna buttercups are out here

It’s Christmas in a few days so it was time to make my curry for Christmas Day; I always think a curry tastes better after it has mouldered in the fridge for a few days.

Spent the rest of the day lazing about in the sun…

Just before sunset an air balloon passed by

it landed on some scrubland near the campsite

Cfor has become a bit of a night owl, he’s decided he quite likes exploring the camp at night in the dark which obviously worries the shit out of Julie. Yours truly has to go and search for him.

Day 289 – Saturday 22nd December 2018

Another sunny day and after lunch we went for a walk to the top of Black Rock

Luz from Black Rock

On the way down there was the “My foot’s gone Tom! My foot’s gone! My foot’s gone! I need help Tom!” incident 😀

Later I went to the Rainbow Bar to watch United play Cardiff. I know Cardiff are crap but with José gone United looked a completely different to team to the one that capitulated so meekly to Liverpool last week.

Day 290 – Sunday 23rd December 2018

Sunny but a little windy today. Had a very lazy day.

Lunch in Luz

Day 291 – Monday 24th December 2018

As well as becoming a bit of a night owl Cfor has decided he’s also an early bird too and he now scratches at the door early in the morning wanting to get out before it’s even light outside. Luckily Julie is in charge of room service during the night.

Cfor thinks if he hides in the bushes for long enough the sparrows will forget he is there

Just after lunch today the little swine disappeared so I had to scoured our part of the camp. After half an hour of searching there was still absolutely no sign of him.

After much head scratching we found him in one of the van’s storage lockers.

Day 292 – Tuesday 25th December 2018

Christmas Day

Day 293 – Wednesday 26th December 2018

A cold day!!! After lunch I had a nap then a walk into Luz and watched United play Huddersfield. After the years and years of Moyes, van Gaal & José it is such a relief to watch a United side play the United way. Sterner tests than Cardiff & Huddersfield are to come but at least we are now heading in the right direction.

Day 294 – Thursday 27th December 2018

Another cold day!! Well it’s 16°C here and only 5°C in Reigate so it’s all relative. I must have finally become a southern softie!

This afternoon I played absolutely shite at petanque. Going to have to rethink my technique; if you can call it that 🙁
