I will be doing a solo mission over to Karra on Sunday to continue the driveway construction project as well as think about beginning the Karravan makeover project.
The Karravan (some might call it a regular, rusty old caravan) sits downstairs underneath the house and sleeps four. At least, it would sleep four had we ever been cruel enough to suggest anybody try it out.
It's rickety, full of cobwebs (and their eight-legged creators), it smells weird and last weekend a SNAKE CAME OUT FROM UNDER IT. A real, honest-to-God snake. I am so glad it happened at the end of the weekend and not the beginning, or I would have aborted the driveway project, mixed a strong drink and gone to sleep for two days instead.
And I'm not even scared of snakes (much).
I suspect the Karravan just needs a bit of love. And a sign. Like, for example, this one:
I also suspect it needs a nice kaffir lime tree near it, because I was given one for my birthday yesterday and I want to find a home for it:
On top of that, I can't help feeling some cheap vinyl tiles and a splash of paint would do it the world of good... I see a 50's kitsch style, like perhaps this one from Happy Loves Rosie.
Ok, maybe not QUITE this cool, we're just not hip enough to pull a caravan like this off, but you can appreciate the idea...
