Not so Rapid-o – Parts 2 and 3

OK all you saddos out there who wanted evidence of our first attempt at disassembling the Rapido; here is the video of it.  It’s in two parts as we were interrupted by a welcome visitor.  Bearing in mind I’d not been there when John and Rob/Sarah Liscoe (thankyou) erected it and had not watched the various Youtube speed erection (ooo err missus) videos, i think we were pretty good getting it down in 14minutes!  I don’t think we’d put a family tent away any quicker anyway!.  Also we must pat ourselves on our respective backs for (a) not breaking anything (man nor machine) and (b) not falling out (of it or with each other)

You may also be interested to know that I have bought material to make curtains and cushion covers.  Be afraid, be very afraid – i shall be attempting to thread a sewing machine for the first time since i was in the equivalent of year 8.  I shall be attempting it without (a) breaking the machine or (b) throwing a tantrum – i have vague memories of throwing my school sewing project out of the window

I thank , in advance, Kim Jackson for her tolerance and patience in attempting to teach me this skill.

I selected the Daisy Sky print for curtains and the cerise pink leatherette for the seat covers with baby pink leatherette as an accent colour!

PS I won’t blame any of you if you don’t watch the video(s) its hardly an edge of the seat, high budget production, not worth popping the corn or dimming the lights for……

Rose Tinted Ramblings

I'm Bernice but unless I'm in trouble, it's Berni. I laugh heartily; love wholely and live completely. I write what I think. Sometimes its fun, sometimes its political, sometimes its frustration, or angst. Always its real and heartfelt. I now live in Mid Wales having found a home with my family (John, my parner and Jason, our son) here in Llanwrtyd Wells where everyday eccentricity is celebrated. a place in the UK that attracts those from outside the mainstream and has created an identity based on its quirkiness. A perfect home for someone like me who tends not to follow the crowd, doesn't have a quiet laugh, and tends to speak first, think later! Life has reached a juncture where I have become aware that when you live your life through rose-tinted spectacles, every experience becomes one including joy, laughter, friends, meetings, experiences and great memories. Having always fancied being a columnist I figured why not share my rose-tinted ramblings with anyone out there who might want to listen- and if no-ones out there, why not write them anyway - bit like a public diary - but hey I have no dirty little secrets that I'm not prepared to share....!!!!
