We’ve just been on another camping adventure, our last of the year. We’ve come back refreshed and determined to find our dream campervan.

One of the things I love about camping, whether in a van or under canvas, is it makes you realise how simple life could be, how little you need to survive and how free you can feel when not suffocated by possessions.

In order to boost the coffers in our van fund, with the added benefit of simplifying our lives, we’re in the midst of a massive, huge, whopping great big sort-out.

Ten boxes came out of the loft yesterday and only two very precious boxes will be going back up; there are some things I’m just not ready to part with yet. Here are some of those things.
