1 Week To Go!

Our excitement is vibrating the atmosphere as we prepare for the arrival of our big yellow bus!

Firstly we thought that it would be a good idea to see how the bus will fit onto our driveway. We are quite fortunate having a shared driveway with our neighbor, with enough room for both of our cars. As we live on a farm which has converted its barns into houses, there is quite a pleasant community feel here. Our original thoughts were that we could park our cars behind our house on the communal road, leaving space on our driveway for the bus.

Duct tape- a most useful tool!

So the reality started to set in that perhaps this was going to be a tight squeeze, but one of our main philosophies on life is to be positive! We understand the impact that our thoughts can have on reality, as our thoughts are very real, and so we both continued to observe our thoughts, and discard any negative fear that was making its way into our heads.

Speaking of the power of thoughts, there has been a range of very interesting experiments carried out concerning how thoughts affect our environment, our state of wellbeing and many other fascinating discoveries. For further information, check out research from Masaru Emoto, on the link below-


So yes, positive thoughts… all will work out perfectly… the bus will fit on the driveway…life is great…..

Peace & love

The Apprehensive Wait…


So following our decision to purchase a Mercedes Vario 30 Seater School Bus… we wait.

We purchased our bus from Mike Daly who owns a company in Warrington, Cheshire. http://www.usedcoachsales.co.uk/

We must say, Mike has been an absolute diamond and we would recommend him for anybody wishing to buy something similar. After we had placed our deposit for Bertie, Mike carried out some finishing touches for us including fixing the air suspension and also carrying out a full mot. Mike then went out of his way to deliver our new vehicle from Warrington to our current abode in East Yorkshire…without charging us a penny! As we said, hes a diamond!

But before the delivery of our project and big yellow adventure… we wait.

As we both eagerly awaited the arrival of Bertie, many thoughts were drifting through our minds; where are we actually going to keep the bus?.. Continue reading “The Apprehensive Wait…”

The First Post

So… a few months ago, around February.. we acquired a big yellow school bus. I instantly named him Bertie, Jon prefers a more beastly Bertock… Meet Bertie…


This may seem like a crazy idea; we had to borrow funds and neither of us have the correct license to even drive our new project home!

The easy way to explain this is by saying that both us of share the same dream of travelling around in a cosy vehicle that we call home but this has been our dream for years… why now?…
