Just another *tile* on the wall…. Any ideas what to grout it with? I have visions of normal kitchen tile grout just being shaken to dust as we drive over the potholes around here. And that’s just commuting, let alone adventuring! 😂 ADVICE NEEDED! . . Feeling like I finally have a little bit of time to get stuck in with the van build after uni work had slackened off a bit. It’s so strange doing something as conventional as tiling but in such and unconventional space! . . #vanbuild #doityourself #campervanconversion #projectvanlife #craftercamper #vanfam #progress #tinyhome #homeonwheels #builtnotbought #camperlife #vanfamily #vwvan #vankitchen #camperconversion #vanconversion #vaninterior #camperlife #vanlifevirals #thisgirlcan #offgridhome

Summer days don’t have to be sunny to be beautiful. . Blessed to have spent the day with @kayinmantilly and my two lovely girls. We had a walk exploring the incredible landscaped grounds of @bowoodwiltshire and some lunch before the girls wore themselves out on the adventure playground. The caves, waterfall and lake are breathtaking and they have such awesome trees including some of the most stunning specimens in Europe! . Seriously considering season tickets next year as it would be well worth it! . . #bowood #wiltshire #wiltshiremums #getoutdoors #exploretheuk #raisingwildlings #goexplore #countryhouse #rurallife #englishhome #countryestate #familytime #camperfamily #adventuretime #capabilitybrown #landscapedgardens #countryliving #daytrips #summerhols #vanfam #outdoorlife #embracetherain #britishweather #uklife

The whole reason for the van build is to have more times like this.. Exploring as a family in the Peak District has been so refreshing and fun for all of us. Top tips for making the most of this place: - Park up at Wetton car park, it’s free and there are toilets. - Get there early! By the time we had taken a couple of photos, there were loads of people about and cars not able to find a space. - sturdy footwear is a must, especially when wet underfoot, prepare to get muddy! - it’s not a long hike so don’t take too much stuff! (Note to self, leave the excessive snacks behind) Looking forward to coming back to the Peak District to explore more! #exploremore #getoutdoors #peakdistrict #familyadventures #littleexplorers #outdoorlife #roaming #vanlifestyle #camperfamily #vanlife #campinglife #wildkids #vanfamilies #campervanlife #selfbuild #hikingwithkids #outdoorlearning #naturelovers #goodtimes #vanfam #camper

The window panel now holds the curtains back so we don’t have them scrunched up or trapped in the door- Yey! Bring on springtime trips, we are sooo ready! #springiscoming #vanconversion #vaninterior #vanlife #vanfam #buildthedream #homeonwheels #builtnotbought #camperlifestyle #vwcampers #vanlifecamper #projectvanlife #camperconversion #happycamper #lifeofadventure #designbuild #travelfamily #campervan

Do a little dance… make sofa cover panels… ok so the words don’t fit but listening to music while I work on any project helps to keep me motivated and focussed. The sofa/ mattress cushion covers are going to be made of this deep lush velvet which I found in our fantastic local fabric shop @shamrocklinens they were super helpful in choosing the right fabric for the job and I couldn’t be more pleased with it. I have a huge passion for sewing so this was a day that deserved all the best dance moves 😂 The panels are all cut so now it’s time to sew them together and see just how accurate the measurements were 😅. #shoplocal #doalittledance #vaninterior #vanconversion #vanliving #vanlifestyle #camperlife #campervan #camperconversion #vwvan #happycamper #diycamper #vanlifecamper #dancedance #buildalifeyoulove #vanbuild #selfbuild #designbuild #builtnotbought #interiorinspiration #houseonwheels #tinyhome #offgridliving #freesoul #homesewn

We are sailing through this van conversion… 🤣🤣 If only it was as quick as this! No.. this is a mammoth challenge for us alongside home and work life and of course we keep having to stop to go adventuring! It’s taken a year so far but this pretty much sums up the progress up until the beginning of 2024. Also, we don’t have as many photos and videos of the conversion as we would like to because honestly- recording it all is actually the last thing on our minds when we are so busy getting things done!

When work sets a challenge to wear a ridiculous hat while out walking and I’m just here being me. . . . #lovemyjob #nhs #walkingaround #beingme #walkingforwellbeing #stepcount #therapist #getoutdoors #walkmore #walkingtowork

No such thing as bad weather..right?!… oh and the moment I learned; If it doesn’t look like a footpath, it isn’t a footpath… 🤣 . 3 days spent in South Gloucestershire mooching about woodlands and marching up to monuments. The kids went right up to the top of the William Tyndale monument and took a picture for me while I span out on the spiral steps below and refused to go further 😅 I swear you could feel it swaying in the wind 😵‍💫. Some of the best adventures happen when you lose the footpath. Luckily no-one ended up with a muddy bum! . . #vanadventures #vanfamily #alwaysexploring #adventurefamily #raisingwildlings #wildandfree #goexplore #rainywalks #mud #camperfamily #vanlife #muddywalk #walkinginthewoods #outdoorlife #getoutdoors #whatevertheweatherkids
