    Unhappy were back but not without the usual hiccup's

    well all want well on our trip to brean.......bit miffed realy as going there we used about 2/3 of a tank of fuel
    weather was great, even got a bit of a tan top-up on fri on the beach
    had a few up's and down with the van though....firstly the waste water pipe snapped, semi flood/spill into the van
    then a shelve snapped and all clothes were all over

    and to top it off on the way home today on the M42 there was a wop wop wop wop wop wop ???????

    stopped on hard shoulder and checked ???????

    drove forward again wop wop wop wop wop wop wop wop..........


    then looked again

    2 blokes from highways agency stopped and gave me a hand to cone off as i changed the van wheel as it was FALLING OFF

    one fooked wheel, 4 fooooked stud's and 1 lost wheel nut.......not happy, couldn't tighten up the nut's all the way so had to call the AA to get it home....., sent kate and amelia ahead and waited there for recovery.....took about an hour till they turned up and he said we were well lucky it didn't fall off at speed or we could have been well fooked......
    anyway all back in one piece, and van back on my mum's drive awaiting repair costing's..........
