I went to the Wychwood festival at Cheltenham this weekend gone - 3 days of fab weather and great music etc. We were camping in our converted Transit, but the bloke in front of us was in a lwb defender that was pulling the biggest [Censored] off caravan I have seen for a long time. When I asked what it did to the gallon when pulling this behemoth he just grinned and said he couldn't tell me in case his missus heard - apparently she thinks it'll do about 20mpg even when towing. Truth be known it is less than half that - gulp, guess I'll be keeping the Transit then.....

Iíve worked the wychwood festival a few times. Itís a good do. Smile

As for 10 mpg in the Defender, thatíll hurt with the rising price of fuel... Evil or Very Mad

Ground breaking news (literally).

Mrs K and I are off to the alresford music festival tomorrow. No Landy activity but a great day out nonetheless! Very Happy

When baby knappster is in nursery later in the week, I might get a bit of time to do some Landy jobs once Iíve done the cleaning. And Iíve got a tree to take down in the garden and a hedge to cut... still, I get to take it to the tip in the 90! Smile

They say when a butterfly flaps its wings in Brazil it can lead to a tornado in Texas. Even more incredible, when a potato plant rears its head above ground in Hampshire I get an email in Leicester!

Rich, you throw away firewood in Gloucestershire? (is this what they mean by the north/south divide?)

Oh no! Iím keeping the wood for logs! The leafy bits and hedge cuttings go to the tip.

A bit of good old West Country recycling! Smile

Baby knappsterís got an eye infection and a chesty cough so sheís off of nursery for a few days. No gardening or Landy time for daddy then! Still, sheís on the mend and Iím enjoying having her home with me. Very Happy

As itís tumbleweed, anyone watching love island??? Other than a load of men and women jumping into bed with each other, what is the idea behind the series??? Confused Mrs Kís watching it but when I ask her what the storyline is, she doesnít know but doesnít miss an episode! Rolling Eyes

Had a trip to ikea today. Even though I knew the two items I wanted, itís still not a quick visit. The store is laid out in such a way that you walk through each department before the exit, thus trying to get you to impulse-buy. That would be a bad move in somewhere like Craddocks or Paddocks!

I bought a gazebo and a picnic rug, both were on offer. I had ideas on the gazebo being a temporary cover for the 90 so I could do jobs on it in the rain but Mrs K was having none of it. Apparently these items are for an impending milestone birthday BBQ... Not mine, I must add!

I walked the dogs to the local where I enjoyed 3 pints of Otter real ale and then walked (in a straight line) home. I won't be driving until tomorrow mid morning at the earliest and only if necessary. Mrs. D has chores in mind for me.
