Back to the grind stone....

Well, we are open again and looking forward to the new season. Had a good start seen a few people, which was better than December! It's kind of my month off as not many people think about caravans before Christmas, so I can get some banjo practice in, I'm getting to grips with The Ballard of Jed Campett which was the theme tune to the Beverly Hillbillies in the 60's. Its one of those tunes that every asks for, like Dueling Banjos, that was the first one I learnt!
I've got the new year illness on the way after every one gets too close and passes on all sorts of coughs, colds and I don't know what, I hope it isn't man flu!
The girls are back to school and growing up fast Aalayah is 14 next month and Erin is 7!! Where does the time go??
We have been here three years in April, it only feels like yesterday we were knocking ten bails out of the reception to get it to look half descent.
I hope this year will see a slight increase in sales as I think the word is getting around that we are here. I also hope to get into the Cornwall show as we will be able to let lots of people know where we are. The new Swift's are going well and I have a good amount of pre owned stock, ready for the new season.

Well, its that time of year, Aalayah and Erin went back to school and are now both off with colds. I'v got the Exeter show and the NEC coming up, Just enough time to catch what ever they have! Oh well, I will drink plenty of orange juice and keep my fingers crossed!
We have got a nice ranger of caravans in at the moment, both new and pre owned, we need to clear some stock so pop in for a deal.
Hope to see you at the Exeter show on the 11th 12th and 13th of feb or come and find me at the NEC, I will be on the swift stand.
