Ffloyd and Clifford go Camping

It was an odd mix of emotions this morning.  A bitter sweet mix. Ffloyd was heading away on holiday without me. Worse still she was going without me AND going with Clifford.  I guess i was a little jealous. Alongside a large dollop of pride.  Clifford is my son Jason’s Singer Chamois.  He’s been going along to Imp Club Nationals since he was two.

This will be the first one he’s driving to with the added bonus of doing so in a car he built himself.  He turned 17 last November and passed his test this April.

Originally the plan was for John, Jason and I to go in convoy the 260 miles from Llanwrtyd to Darlington in Thunderbird 4, Clifford and Ffloyd respectively.   However, TB4 remains on SORN and our B&B is full .  So this amazing adventure is a Crompton only, big boys adventure. John is leading the way in Ffloyd and Jason is following in Clifford.  His brother; John’s son, Graham will meet them there in Reg.

They’re going to have a ball.  Camping, Cars and Cromptons. A winning combination.
I’m looking forward to the updates – hint hint boys 😉

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....!!!!
