I asked him to join me in a wine he couldnt get over quick enough!! grin his metal detector went straight for my undergarments!!shock but I put him straight that it ws just the safety pin holding my knickers up shock...I could see he was just after my wine wine so I gave him short thrift!! ..........after a while I thought hmmm im bit lonley here so I nipped across the road to this borded up shop with an arrow that pointed round the corner (you had to use the back entrance)!! hmm..hanging up in a packet were 2 infaltable dolls..! one male one I bought both...but myyyyyyyyy by the time I had blown them up I was cream crackerad!! we shared a few more glasses of wine then thought hmm why not light the BBQ...Which I did,,as i turned back round ,, I could see only One of my new friends!! OHHHHH dear! I thought...and it was then I looked to see a pile of melted plastic in a little pile shock I was deveasted,,,,so i snugggled down in my sleeping bag on the beach and after serveral glasses of wine I drifted off....I awoke slowly and a bit my feet felt a little chilly...and damp..!! I raised my head (ouch)....and saw the tide lapping at my feet!!!!!!!! I looked up towards the horizon...and there he was !! my other friend, bobbing up and down drifting towards the Big Tanker! I was motified!! shock I packed up my things tidied round and walked to Mcdonalds..had lots of black coffeee and a bagel...a brisk walk round..and back into the camper van..where it is now back up for sale on Ebay!!

I'm sorry, I must have heard wrongly, I made my way to Whitby, I knew it was by the sea the meet up. Anyway this chap approached me, and it turned out to be Dracula, so being daft, I let him suck my neck and now I am a damn vampire, and can only go out after dark, I have had to change all my routines now and my diet. I can't suck my husbands neck and it is all wrinkly and shrivelled, hoping to find a nubile toy boy.

biker I am so sorry I missed the departure, I must have been having a glass or two in the quiet corner.

You certainly had a very eventful time in Blackpool.I would have loved to have met your new friends, but never mind there is a shop on the high street which have lots of these friends, so when we go camping let me know and I will call in and get a couple to bring along. grin grin

Great adventures biker. I was waiting for you to swing by Tobermory all weekend. Enjoyed the sunshine and sea air. Eventually gave up and came home as I have to go to France next week. Maybe another time?

glassortwo Fri 29-Jul-11 08:35:37

Oh I love Tobermory Annobel been a few years since we were there but holds some good memories.

bikergran Fri 29-Jul-11 08:51:05

Oh heck!! sorry Annobel my mind is like a sieve and I was so embrolled with my new found friends that I got carried away (well one of them litteraly got carried away) then Tobermory hmm now theres an idea! hmm or you say you are off to France? now then...shall we girls???? smile how much room you got in you car Annobel

Baggy Fri 29-Jul-11 09:08:19

Yes, and I was waiting elsewhere in Argyll to be picked up on your way to Tobermory. We climbed a mountain so we could see the camper van but unfortunately it was the wrong mountain because we couldn't see any roads at all from the top. Anyway, since you were having fun in B'pool, it turns out that it doesn't matter because we didn't miss you. So glad you had a ball! smile

I'm still recovering from the mountain but it was worth it for the wild flowers all the way up (and down) and the ravens' calls.

Dordor Fri 29-Jul-11 12:35:17

Oh drat, I've missed it. And I'd got out all my floaty clothes, some baskets to put raspberries in, and lots and lots of maps. Oh well, I'll just have to go to the Edinburgh Festival instead, although maybe I'll need something a bit stouter than cheesecloth. . . . Anyone else going?

Annobel Fri 29-Jul-11 14:31:56

Sorry*biker*, I'm not taking the car. I'm going on Eurostar and TGV this time. After what I did to a Ford Fiesta (hired) in Granada, I am banned (by the family) from driving in Europe.wink

Why did those asterisks round 'biker' not work?

bikergran Fri 29-Jul-11 16:29:18

crimson Fri 29-Jul-11 17:09:32

Ooooh nooooh is the camping trip off now I didn't know, I told everyone about the trip. I had been waiting for you to pick me up. sad I had a bag of fresh oranges, straight off the tree. I even some home grown olives to eat with some crusty bread and cheese. Now what..... confused

I was waiting with my country music CDs at the start of the M1. I turned down offers of lifts from a couple of nice truckers. I politely told them that I was waiting for friends and I was sure they would turn up. I waited and waited. In the end I called my daughter and she said 'I told you so'. sad

bikergran Sat 30-Jul-11 09:00:51

glammanana Sat 30-Jul-11 11:47:49

I was at junction 1 at the M53 for hour's and people kept stopping me if I was looking for anyone" special" and I told them that I was being picked up
by a group of Gransnetter's I got some funny looks and after coming to the
conclusion that the van must have broken down or the sat nav conked out I came home and think Glamping may be a good idea,so we can take some nice home comforts with us.
