A quick visit up to Telford to get the solar panel entry gland resealed. During the recent habitation check they found that there could be a chance of water ingress, as the entry is positioned right where the water tends to puddle on the roof of the van due to some very silly planning by Burstner. The entry gland is now well and truly sealed. However, on the way up, passing through the ridiculous roadworks on the M6 we picked up a stone chip on the windscreen that looked like it could spread. Our insurance covers windscreens through autoglass (don't we know it) and we rang to arrange for the chip to be repaired. They couldn't fit us in for another 2 days and when I filled in the online request there was a quote of over £150 for a stone chip (to be paid by the insurance, obviously). We spoke to a local company across the road (who also happen to subcontract to autoglass). They repaired the chip the following morning for £30. No wonder insurance premiums are so high!
The following day we had a long walk around Blists Hill Victorian Village again, enjoying their wonderful fish and chips for lunch (cooked in lard, not oil). Luvverly! It is a very interesting place to visit and we enjoyed our day in the bright sunshine.
On Friday we went off to stay near Ludlow with my sister, spending Friday night at the local village hall watching a Great British Bake Off entrant demonstrate how to make a cake and on Saturday morning visited Ludlow. We finally headed home on Sunday, absolutely exhausted and fed up with the stupid bloody roadworks and potholes in this bloody country!!! Grrrr!!!!!
