About Me

My photo
Hi! I'm Eunice and I live in Bolton, Lancashire, with my two dogs Sophie and Sugar and an assortment of cats - well it used to be Sophie and Sugar, now it's Sophie and Poppie. I first began camping back in 1997 when my then partner took me to Anglesey for my birthday weekend. We slept in the back of the car - a hatchback - using the cushions off the settee at home as a mattress, and cooked and brewed up on a single burner camping stove. The site was good, the views were great, the weather fantastic and I was completely hooked. Following that weekend we got a two-man tent and some proper accessories and returned to Anglesey two weeks later, then over time we progressed to a three-man tent followed by an old trailer tent, then a new trailer tent, a campervan and finally a caravan. When my partner decided that the grass was greener on the other side of the street - literally - in April 2009 and I suddenly found myself alone after fifteen years, I decided there was no way I was going to give up camping and caravanning if I could cope on my own. This blog is the story of my travels, trials and tribulations since becoming a solo camper - I hope you like it

Happy New Year

Those of you who don't read my Mouse House blog won't have known that I had my van stolen, along with much of my camping gear, back in mid August. It was an awful experience and one which I didn't want to broadcast too much; needless to say I haven't been camping since my June holiday in the Lake District, which explains my absence on here. However, I now have a new-to-me van and I'm well on the way to replacing all my gear so hopefully I'll be camping again over the forthcoming Easter weekend.

So thank you to everyone who reads this blog and has followed my camping adventures so far - I hope you all have a happy and prosperous New Year. And in the words of The Terminator - ''I'll be back!''
