Although both of us are at home most of the time, the long Easter weekend seemed to be a chance to get the caravan cleared out and prepared in case we can use it later in the year.
It hasn’t been touched since I moved out after 3 months’ occupation during the first isolation last year. I cleaned the bathroom, but apart from emptying the dehumidifier weekly nobody has been in there.
First we emptied everything out. How can the contents of a caravan fill a house?? Next every item is being washed, scrubbed, scraped or replaced if simply too bad, while all the surfaces and interiors are getting a deep clean. Despite the dehumidifier mildew has appeared.
We had three batteries, one installed. Two are completely dead and the third in reasonably good condition. We’ll need a spare.
When the inside is up to the memsahib’s standard we will need to drag it out of its corner and give the outside a thorough going over. Then we might unpack the cover we bought two years ago…
Incidentally we have also harrowed and re-seeded two one-acre paddocks over the weekend. Now it is snowing.
