Family Travel, Our recycled home

Goodbye little home!

24 July, 2013

We are outies! Vamos! We made like Tom and crui- YEAH, you get it, I know.

We have officially left our little Camberwell home. Firstly, a little bit more south to stay with my folks while we get the Campervan all ship-shape. Then to Camp Bestival and then straight over the seas to begin our European bombaround.

It’s not farewell to our friends and family, as we will still be seeing them over the next 6 months. But it is Adios to our little recycled home here in Camberwell. Here are some of my favourite snaps of the space we worked so hard to create.

Goodbye, little home.

PS What a bummer it’d be if you missed a post of mine, eh? Follow through Facebook or Bloglovin or even just enter your email to get them pinged into your inbox. I won’t be spamalot, promise!

    I hope you find your true home. We haven’t decided were to go next. I still have one child in ft, but my girls when they are old enough will be home schooled. I just want to be somewhere that hasn’t been invaded and taken advantage of. Sadly I no longer think the uk to be home for us.
    I feel like my light has been snuffed out and we are now
    PC. Bring back the days from my chilhood. I hope you have a fab time at bestival. Sending my love and best wishes to all of you. Allie

        Hiya Lucy we haven’t decided yet. We are moving into my parents for a while whilst me and Paul look for work abroad. Sweden has popped up countless times as has Norway. The joys of being married to a swede.
        I don’t know if you feel how I feel, but don’t you sometimes feel like the uk has lost the plot ? sadly I do not feel safe. We did talk about oz even Palma as he is an engineer so he can do what he likes. We’re as me I would have to go and work in an English speaking school, until I got the lingo.
        I just want fern and willow to have a future. If we stay here they won’t. Sad but true. Let me know how your touring adventures get on. Shame you can’t do you tube videos. Love and best wishes for all of you, and keep safe.

    Ah so sad… I feel quite attached to your little house, seeing it slowly transformed from the beginning (and i must add i was STOKED to see a particular lampshade featured in your pics… ) Have a fabulous trip and we can’t wait to see you all again x

    I have one thing to say, and that’s Lucy, will you be my interior designer? (Of my theoretical house…)
