Van Jamboree

What a perfect weekend to take in the delights of a VW campervan experience. Like many of you folk out there, we at the Just Original household love VW Campervan, the pennies are been saved every week. The Van Jamboree at Newark was in its 3rd year and it was great, lots to see and do and for the bargain price of £16 for the two of us and little dear was free. A great day out!

I did not take many photos but the mint green was great and the red one with the beetle trailer was fantastic, people must spend hours cleaning and polishing them only to get fly splats on them.

Anyway gonna go, more photos after the weekend as we have a trip to York on Saturday, childfree, Yeh!

Stamp tastic!

Since starting work in my local Post Office, I have a new appreciation of the humble stamp. After visiting the bric a brac market at Chesterfield and finding a treasure trove of stamps at 50p a pack I just had to buy. I then wondered what to do with them and then I had an idea. Buy some cheap canvas frames!
Spend 15 minutes gluing them on!
Et Voila! I have to say it looks really great and given most of the stamps have the original postage marking on them, I think they look really vintagey!

Return visit!

We enjoyed our 1st visit to Derwent Dams/Ladybower reservoir so much we made a return visit on Bank holiday Monday. We got up early and arrived at the car park for 9.30, the place was deserted so we knew we made the right decision to get up early. We only did a short walk as little dear has only got little legs you know mummy! We went very high up much too little dears amusement.

We then had a drive around and went to Hope & Castleton. We did not stay for long as to be honest I was a little disappointed in them really, don't know what my expectations were but they did not live up to them. But hey ho its another place off the list. You may ask what the list is, its obviously a list of places where we all want to go to in the UK, both local and national, free activities and paid up activities.

Next on the list is Leverton Windmill, will let you know how we get on.
