isn't it odd when something you decide to do leads you to such a random event with such a narrow opportunity for its occurance?
swampy and i decided, totally out of nowhere to go and visit the campsite we have booked for our h-van camp next month, in a tiny out of the way village about 40 minutes from us, you know the kind of thing, check out the showers!
off we went, stopping at a small bookshop to pick up a copy of 'a hedgerow cookbook' for yours truly.
the campsite was lovely with great views and they have a donkey in a field next to where we will be camped (cody will love that!) then i suggested going through the village to check out the local pub, cafe etc.
as we drove along i saw a group of men at the side of the road by the pub and one smiled and pointed at our van~i did my usual and waved ~i always wave at folk to make them smile~as we passed swampy was going...'thats that guy off the tv...oh you know he is on tv'....well you know me i was totally clueless as usual~swampy finally remembered a few moments later~ turns out it was alistair appleton (cash in the attic, escape to the country etc).
i had waved at him not even realizing who it was!
well i have to say we did turn round and go back and i asked one of the chaps there if he could get me his autograph~golly was i feeling brave!
as it happened alistair come over to us and chatted and signed my book for me!!!
he is a lovely person and has a very serene way about him~peaceful is the only way i can describe it.
so always follow those odd thoughts about doing something or going somewhere~you will never know what may happen!
