25 Days Not long now

Well getting down to the nitty gritty now . We went touring around Derbyshire and the Peak District in the motorhome last week and found a great Rohan shop in Bakewell and managed to spend a small fortune on their latest outdoor gear . We drove into ashbourne and found all the shops boarded up and loads of people milling about , apparantly we stumbled on something called shrovetide which basically a giant rugby scrum of hundreds of people trying to wrestle an oversized football to various places in the town to score a goal , the game is played over 2 days between the Up,ards and the Down,ards of the brook in the middle of town . Bizarre !!!

We have now had all our vacinations and have our anti-malerials and altutude tablets , Our passports are at the various embassies waiting for visas , I ordered our first batch of us $ today from Thos Cook and will order more in the next 2 weeks . We are busy tidying the house and garden for our year away and have decided on a last trip in the motorhome next week to the Hereford area then it has to go into storage.

We still have not worked out how to upload photos on to this blog so that is my task for tomorrow plus sorting out a bank account for Oz
