Here’s a #sundaycarpic for you. I know it’s not Sunday but hey, have you seen this beauty?
So this happened: after our sunny escape to the country side in our rented little VW weekend home, I was sold. .
Me: ‘OMG this weekend was A.MA.ZING!’
Him: quietly sips his bank holiday beer and nods.
Me: ‘We are so buying a van’
Me: ‘yes totally. Imagine we could just drive out to the countryside WHENEVER we want!’
Him: ‘you mean when it doesn’t rain. Which is like 3 weekends a year.’
Me: ignoring him and whipping out my phone to start frantically typing away.
Him: ‘what are you doing?’
‘Here, LOOK!!’ I shove the phone in his face. ‘THIS ONE!!!’
It’s a Landrover Defender 110. A silver metal beast converted to a camper van with a tent on the top.
Him: ‘are you nuts?’ He laughs into his beer.
Me: ‘I’m dead serious’ continuing reading the EBay description. ‘OMG it’s been to Morocco and back!!!’ Him: ‘hey, wife. Wow wow wow, what are you doing?’
Me: ‘I’m bidding. What shall I bid? Is 10k too low? Look it’s in Wales, I can take a train and pick it up next weekend.’
Him: ‘SJ. PUT. THE. PHONE. DOWN. That’s right. Now step away from the phone. Slowly. Here, come here for a cuddle’
Count on my husband to talk some sense and prevent me from buying a heap of metal junk that would spend 340 days a year rusting away under the grey skies of London. But deep down somewhere inside me still lurks the spark of wanderlust, and maybe...one day I’ll get him over the line. #wanderlustforever I whisper to myself as I raise my hand to my heart and weep over the lucky sod in my neighbourhood who did make that eBay bid without being stopped by the voice of reason.
