Introducing.... Bumble!!

We've bought a camper van :D And here he is. Can you guess why he is called Bumble??

We were sorting things out to put in the van and it was teatime so the girls decided to have tea in Bumble while we were sorting.

Anya doesn't look impressed with having her photo taken at tea time though!

Look at the funky floor - easy to entertain the children at least!

A couple of interior shots showing storage space and the fridge and grill.

This is why I am going to develop strong arm muscles (well I suppose I need muscles somewhere!) Obviously no power steering and first gear has a knack to get it right (i.e it is a bugger to get into!) And first gear is in the wrong place (far left at the bottom) but something I will get used to.

Do you think Matt is pleased??

I am very, very pleased with it and we'll never lose it in a car park :)

There are a fair few camper vans here in North Devon - it's surfer dude country - your's is definitely one of the cutest I've seen. I think you should go the whole hog and paint a striped bottom on him and maybe some antenae. Or would that be just waaay too bonkers?

Hope you have lots of fun in it. xxx
