24th June 2009

We left Charmouth and had a long drive up to East Sussex to Normanhurst Court, a Caravan Club site on what was originally the formal gardens of a stately house.  We’re going to stay here as it's the closest site to Johns Cross, the Swift dealer who’ve agreed to fix the things that need doing on the van.  They did say we could stay in their yard, but we prefer to stay on a campsite nearby. We dropped in to their workshop before going to the campsite, they had a quick look at the problems and told us to arrive tomorrow morning about 09:30 and they’d try and get all the work done in one day.

We then drove on to the campsite.  It must have been beautiful in May as there are loads of Rhododendrons everywhere and also loads of rabbits.  The pitches are really big, but the showers aren't as good as some club sites.  We didn't arrive until 17:30 and had to choose our pitch before 18:00  because all vehicles have to stop moving on the site then.  As it's such a big site, and the road is a one way system, we had to walk around and find a suitable pitch.  Paul likes to find a spot away from the trees so we can get a TV or satellite signal for the TV.
We found our pitch and set up, had dinner and watched TV.  I had played AC this morning so no need to tonight and we turned in early.  My shoulder and arm are really hurting today and it's made me grumpy.  I've taken pain killers but they just don't seem to do anything.  I must go and see a doctor or go to the hospital or something as this is driving me mad.
