Our daily view at the minute, lots of wood and mess everywhere!
But another productive day woohooo! 🕺🏻
Simon’s been on it with getting the floor ready for fitting our shower pan and making studwork for the back of the shower wall
Spot the many empty Prosecco bottles 😅 (@vamboadventures gets me 🙋🏼♀️🙋🏻♀️) we are saving them up to make sparkling elderflower wine 🤤
I popped into work this morning to check a few bits as I go back on Monday (😭😭😭) I’ve also been varnishing more of the cladding ready to finish the ceiling towards the bed area
Every day that goes by is showing lots of progress! We can’t wait to get this finished and on the road after lockdown 🚐🧡
Who loves a BBQ? With the weather being so nice and chicken that needed using up we took the opportunity to make the most of it. We have just released a new YouTube Video which is slightly different so go check it out and let us know what you think. If after watching it you feel hungry then we have left the recipe in the description of the video. Link is in our bio! ☝️
Starting to get a few homely bits into the van to make it feel welcoming.
This was a gift from my Dad’s partner Maureen, I thought I’ll put it near the door so I see it when I enter the van.
Hope everyone is well today 🌈🌤😊
It’s been a crazy week, I’m tired and not in the best place emotionally, the support I’ve had from all of you has been so good. Thank you all - #SUPPORTVANLIFERS#vanlifeuk#ukvanlife#travel #adventure… https://www.instagram.com/p/CApXbopnXLh/?igshid=g3nouwolotr9 …

A shot from our road trip around Ireland in 2018. It’s our second home - Luke’s from Donegal! We can’t wait to take the van across and explore more of this beautiful country 💚🇮🇪
Can't beat a good cuppa rooibos and a boardgame. Though I'm very suspicious of how good her dice rolls are. .

Found a scrap van same colour as ours with perfect windowed side door! No cutting holes in the van needed and took less that 10mins to fit!

More holes in the van today ! Put a #heki mini rooflight in , there used to be a orange light on the roof so I put it there.
More progress on the table this weekend - feeling super happy at how it's turned out! 🌊
Next up is installing the leisure battery. Definitely been put it off because it seems a bit daunting - all advice, top tips, online guides very welcome! 🤗
Also crossing my fingers that cladding finally comes back in stock so I can finish off the bed and fix the wall! 😩
Well if Changing Rooms ever come back to the small screen they know where to look for a dedicated painter & sander 🙋🏼♀️
I actually hate painting - it’s one of those things that seem like a great idea at the start but then after an hour it’s the worst idea I’ve ever had. BUT I’ve become obsessed with my painting & sanding in the van (probably because lockdown has seriously reduced the amount of things I have to focus on).
I’m three coats down on the bench boxes and they’re looking so damn fresh and have made such a big difference already to how spacious Minnie feels.
We’ve decided to create a clean canvas and then jazz her up with the odd quirky feature (like the gold taps I’m positively drooling over).
This week we’re looking at the flooring (who knew 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 was going to be as tricky as it is?!), a table top and our kitchen counter so if anyone has any brands they’ve used in their builds please let us know 🚐👇
Oh my.....best attempt so far. I got really into this sourdough business and enjoy the process as much as taste and smell! See more pics in stories

We pulled out the mattress today to finally get the bed area ready for painting!
We are regretting not doing this at the start when we could get into the front of the van a lot easier but it’ll all be worth it!
Rhi’s been busy sanding (looking at her most glamorous) and Simons been busy finishing up the walls ready to be painted too
Busy busy! 🚐🧡 follow: @onourwayinavan
First proper skate session post lockdown in the glorious sunshine 🌞 my shins are done for and I lost a game of skate to a 14 year old. .

The Cotswolds is only a short drive from where we live so it only makes sense that we have explored so much of its rather impressive countryside and lovely little villages. Spending so much time there has also ment we have found some rather perfect places to spend the night. We remember when we first stumbled across this lay-by after a long day of hiking. We were looking for a place to stay driving down country lanes but just not finding a place that looked suitable to stop the night, You know how it is sometimes. After nearly giving up and pulling into a lay-by on a busy A road we decided to once a gain try a country lane. Suddenly as we passed a farm the road opened up into this stunning view and to make it even better there was a lay-by right in the middle. We pulled in and spent the evening watching pheasants run around in the fields, we watched a barn owl hunting as the sun was setting and we’re even woken up in the middle of the night with the sound of a fox screeching. If anyone has ever heard a fox do this you can only imagine what it was like in the pitch black of night in the middle of nowhere. We awoke to the sun beating through the curtains and started to boil the kettle on our stove with the sliding door open. The smell of nature filled the van and a refreshing breeze touched our cheeks. We have camped in many places and this spot has to be at least in our top 3 favourites. Have you ever stumbled across a camp spot that surprised you and ended up being one of your favourites? #sarahandthebearadventures#ukvanlife#vanlifeuk#campingintheuk#vanagon#vanagonlife#vanagonwestfalia#vwt25uk#vwt25life#vanlifeadventures#westfaliaaddicted#vwcamper#cotswolds#wildcampinguk#travellingcouple
