Sometimes I wish this blog was like Facebook: that I could interact more directly with readers; that they could comment more easily and we could have a chat without the endless posting and clicking of buttons and signing in and having wordpress insist that I am Mark etc.  Whereas what usually happens is that I catch up with comments the day after I post, and then having made it through the incomprehensibly tortuous screening process needed in order to comment on my own blog!!! I respond to the comment, we’ve all forgotten what the post was about in the first place.

Of course, people do comment on Facebook, but then you can’t see the comments unless you’re a friend of mine on there.

I hope my latest follower comments from time to time: Sandy Ludinski is a caravanner in Australia

and I have always longed to have a caravan.  Actually not a caravan as such: I’d really like a camper van (a VW one if possible) which you can just get into and drive and then climb in the back of and cook and then sleep.  Lovely.  I’ve decided since last summer’s fiasco in Derbyshire:

– that my camping days are over, but a camper van is very appealing.  Perhaps you can hire one for a few days?  Er – yes, you can, but it’s not cheap:

Anyone out there got a camper van they want to loan us for the weekend?

While we wait for offers to flood in, I will just note that the Synod has approved the appointment of women bishops.  Yay!

      Thank you. I really love VW campers but they are so expensive! I have a calendar on my wall with pictures of them

  2. dont we all want a vw campervan, with split screen, but with the added option of power steering? have to say though that the price to rent one from that site you linked to are truly steep !!!! might be cheaper to b&b ! so what was the camping disaster you spoke of? We went camping once, one night thunder storm and I spent all night just walking around the tent knocking the pegs back in while our eldest (only at that time) , then about 4 years old, snored all through it !!! vowed to never sleep in a tent ever again !!!

    not in uk anyway.

      Our last camping trip entailed two nights in a freezing and tiny tent on a hill in Derbyshire, being continually battered by hail and having to get up twice for the loo. Horrid

      • that soundslike my last encounter in a tent. Thunderstorm all night long. Although, that same week we also had a few days in the wilderness of the east coast somewhere. I recall rising early and going skinny dipping in the sea. I almost lost my towel, just as I spotted some people walking along the beach! my wife keeps hinting about a campervan, although I dont know when we would have the time to actually benefit from it.
