The Tiny, Totty Caravan is home!

We towed the caravan back from Glasgow to its new home in Kirkcudbright yesterday, and I'm pleased to say it went without a hitch, ha ha! (hitch, get it!) Needless to say, I have been fiddling my head off , ignoring all other jobs in order to get these shots for you all to see! Isn't it sweet? It's so very tiny, that I have to keep going outside to look at it! I can't wait for seaside trips with thermos flasks, sand sandwiches and woolly blankets!

Oh it's sooooo cute! And very cosy when it rains no doubt ;) I like the pretty fabrics and the bunting!x

That is an absolute fantasy caravan! I am so pleased to get to see inside one. Sorry for barging in like this, a total stranger, but it was just too tempting when I saw you parked there.

Thank you Jessie, and welcome Luciao! You're not barging in, you are very welcome at my humble little blog xx

Hi Liz ! Wow, you did it !!! Incredible... now you just need that little red car to tow it about with... Oh boy, Tiddles must be just overjoyed, and runnig around like a mad little Tiger ! But I have to admit, I'm still trying to figure out, can you actually sleep inside it ? In any case, the teapots, the teddy bear in the corner, it all looks FAB !!! Enjoy your summer toodling about like Mr Toad would do...

It's absolutely brilliant Liz. You've done well with that one. I wonder what Tiddles thought when he saw it! So nostalgic.
Best wishes

.. Tiddles' Delight ..

Tiddles came running
From the jungle back yard
To see what the bustle was
He could hear from afar
Oh joy oh delicious !
Oh wonder oh boy !
For there in the drive
Was a new camping car !

Just think of the travels
we'll be taking quite soon
We'll be off to the sea shore
Tomorrow at noon
From there to the mountains
And across heather'd moors
Why, if we could just add wings
We could fly to the moon

Oh Tiddles is happy
He can't keep from singing
And already he's thinking
'Bout the friends
He'll be bringing
All cozy and cuddles
By the side of the sea
The camping car parked there
So proud to be free
The perfect place
With the perfect friends
For scones and jam
And a hot cup of tea !

Ha ha ha ha ha ha. I;m going to have to stop laughing's beginning to hurt!

Owen said...

Oh where oh where did Tiddles go ?
Everyone's asking but nobody knows
Some say he ran off with a traveling show
Some say they saw him out on the road
Perhaps he's swimming in a sandy cove
Perhaps he's flying in the sky above
In a giant peach pulled by doves
Maybe he ran off with a gypsy band
But I think he's down at the beach
Building castles in the sand...
