Low ceilings, high expectations and some thoughts on people who use filler to cover up screws…

Still slow progess on the bus front. But we’ve begun to make a bit of progess on the air vents.
What we’ve learned recently:
1. This is not a bus but a patchwork quilt of wood, tin, nails, rivets, screws, glue and despair…
2. Filler must have been cheap when it was being constructed
3. That heater vent likes where it is… and it is refusing to go anywhere.
4. The air vent’s connected to the roof… and the back wall…
5. That back wall is made of wood.
6. Crowbars are fun
7. Rubber flooring is not fun

Our enthusiasm is waning a little but we’ll get there. I refuse to be defeated by a 12m hunk of steel, fiber glass and ply.
I think Brent feels the same way… and the kids? Well they just want to hang out on the bus no matter what state it’s  in.
We’re done for the night but tomorrow I’ll be back there blindly poking at filler in the hopes of discovering a screw or a rivet somewhere in there.

What lies beneath- our first dose of bus related disillusionment

I am a little dispondent right now so I don’t feel like writing much. But I feeling better than yesterday. It’s nice to be in the bus even if it isnt cooperating. I’m so grateful to everyone for putting us up but I CANNOT BLOODY WAIT to have our own space again. Even if it’s just so I can eat icecream in my underpants…
Anyhoo sorry for that disturbing mental image… here are some annoying bus pictures…. grrrrr

6 days until we get the bus

So after much research and deliberation I’ve started getting organised for our in bus edible garden. I’ve replanted my pineapple sage into a longer, but narrower planter so they’ll be easier to accommodate when I get around to constructing the window boxes. I got a very exciting delivery from Green Harvest of Stevia. Liquorice and Brazilian Spinach seedlings, which are going in the window boxes too, and a pack of different space saving heirloom veggie seeds which I can’t wait to try out. I had limited success in the flat we have now because it is positioned in a really awkward way to grown anything, apart from moss out the back, and sunflowers out the front. Super excited to start constructing a PVC vertical planter in the next week or so too.

Update :

The cat, despite having her own designated cat grass, has decided to savage my stevia and spinach… hopefully I can revive them… Damn cat…
