Do you sometimes just think, what am I doing and where am I going?  I used to get these feelings a lot but for the last ten years I have been very happy, so what’s changed and why is my head all over the place now.  A couple of things have happened regarding the flat I live in and that has really unsettled me and got me thinking that I do not have to put up with this or let people treat me like this.

So the first thing I have done or I should say start is de-cluttering, not an easy task as I seem to have collected so much “stuff” over the last few years. This is a beginning and there has to be one of those and I think you feel better when you are doing something about it.

I have also decided to sell my camper van, there is only one reason for this and it is that I need a fixed bed as I cannot keep making the bed up every night and pulling it out.  My arthritis is going to get worse and it hurts now to do this so need to do something about it before it gets worse. I have started to advertise it and have seen some nice ones with the fixed bed and all the bits mine has as well so fingers crossed it will sell quick or I can part exchange it in a garage. It would be good to have it all sorted before the family camping trip but we will just have to wait and see. I have seen one I like up in Lancashire which is a private sale but would have to sell mine first.

This is the advert I have put up so please share for me, thank you.

WANTED – Camper van with fixed bed, plus all the above and no older than 2000.         Only changing as got arthritis so need fixed bed.

Next year I really would like to go to Italy for a couple of months and just travel round at my leisure, it has been my dream to do this for so long and I think it should be done before my health gets worse. It is scary to think about doing it on your own but then I can just take my time and if I’m tired and ache then I can just stop for a while.

So I guess I have made plans for the future and all I can do now is keep de-cluttering and wait for the camper to sell.

I feel a bit better now I have got that all down on paper and my thoughts sorted out. How do you deal with it when you come to a crossroads, to help you decide what to do?

    Karen when we went to Italy last year (Naples are, up in the mountains) the driving was horrendous! Do be careful and choose flatter areas. Dennis loves driving, will drive anywhere (he was an HGV driver) but those roads and the driving of locals really got to him and we were pleased to get home in one piece! Just take care lovely xxx

    I think it all fell into place as I was writing. I slept soundly so it’s all good xxx

    When you reach that crossroads you need to make the decision which will hurt least and without allowing for more traffic to build up behind you. It sounds like you made your decisions and made a start on them. good for you Karen.
    I hope it sells quickly and that you find the fixed bed version you need. Italy sounds like a dream trip.
