Practice run on the squabs fabric, think it will work! One new foam! Expensive at $150! Outdoor cushions worked perfectly as a trial run and have decided with normal back cushions.

Lockdown day thirty one: rainbow hair complete. Started our painted planets and had a sleepover in the caravan... got a bit awkward when juni asked where her cot was... need to improve the bed shortage! Loved playing shadow puppets before bed.

A night in rocket at battlehill followed by the escarpment walk. Felt like we were in Smurfy ll. Got the coffee down pat too. Lots of great walks in the area for the kids... we will return.

Second night was super windy. I ended up in the caravan with the kids, Tom and Lyon looked after the awning. A lovely 2 night escape and Basil’s debut outing!
