At home and getting the motorhome serviced ready for the MOT next week. I rang Ribblesdale Autos yesterday and they said they`re still going ahead as normal until they are told not to. I`ll also tax it as normal then we are good to go when restrictions are lifted and i don`t have to fanny around getting it MOT`d and taxed later along with every other Tom, Dick and Harry if suspensions are put it place like they have done with HGV / Trailer testing. If they are suspended can you imagine the panic of trying to get them all done because i don`t think they`ll say ........................................ No worries, just get it MOT`d when you next get chance.

I am pretty much resigned to the fact our MH won't be moving this year. May be that I am being overly pessimistic? I sincerely hope you are making the right decision and I am totally wrong. Good luck...

My dealership Catterick Caravans and the companies other three dealers are all now closed. I had booked the van in for it’s first service in June, but it’s looking doubtful now. I have emailed them asking will this affect the warranty.

I know there are members on here who will SORN theirs for 1 month if it`s not being used just to save a few quid. That`s fine, it`s their choice but not mine and i like to keep everything ready to go at the drop of a hat if at all possible Always good to have a plan and options mr woo. Awe the best with FIL

Back home and as I suspected hating every moment . Won’t see Michelle for 12 weeks, to say I am in a bad mood is an understatement couple of jobs to do on the car 🚘...that said bent double this morning . Hospital later then need a shop amongst the hoards ....if this presents less risk to myself and others from what I was doing I’m a chinaman

A thousand people could have walked or driven by and they wouldn't have known we were there, unless they had some business there, which was highly unlikely. Good luck mate.

Hospital later then need a shop amongst the hoards ....if this presents less risk to myself and others from what I was doing I’m a chinaman I’m sorry to hear how this has hit you Andrew, and it does appear that in cases such as yours no-one has been helped by following the advice. Not the same as having someone with you, but remember that you have many good friends in here. We can all at least communicate, a bit like a virtual pub. Imagine how much less communication with others we would have had even 30 years ago. Stay as safe as you can and stay in touch with us all in here. This is not going to end quickly, but it will end and at that point we’ll appreciate things we once took for granted,

Did less than a thousand miles with MH from October 18 to October 19. Last out with MH late last year frog meet. Planned for Arran February week holiday. Storms killed those plans. Three week trip planned for Republic of Ireland 🇮🇪 where plans were made to meet up with relations on my dads side. I can’t see this tour happening? Had discussed heading down east coast last weekend but, after hearing various reports and a pending lockdown, decided that going would be irresponsible. It is all about listening to the experts and being responsible. We can’t wait to get the all clear and get out again, for the first time this year in MH. Life’s a beach, then you dive.

Sat in the graveyard next to my gaff. I watch from my window & when its empty( of living peeps!) I pop out for my daily constitutional. Sitting on a memorial bench in the blazing sunshine, listening to the quiet, its easy to forget about all this shit for a few minutes. Hope all you good folk are finding a little patch of solace somewhere too...😀🖐

Lovely day here in the Peak District, however if the past is a guide to future performance I suspect it won’t hold for long. I guess this is our POI for the next umpteen months. Just been in the van, it’s warm in there, it might justify its existence as a greenhouse to get the seeds germinated! Hmmm.
