Travel Timehop #17: West Sussex 2013
When are we time-hopping to?
It was Easter 2013 and just six weeks after Tin Box Tot was born. The weather was freezing – we even had snow in April – but we were all snug and warm inside our caravan.
Where in the world
We had taken Tin Box to the Slinfold Caravan Club site in Horsham, East Sussex, from where we were visiting friends. We also took a few long walks across the South Downs with Tin Box Dog and visited Petworth House – a beautiful National Trust property. Read more about our Easter break.
It was Tin Box Tot’s first ever trip away in the caravan and we are so pleased with how she adapted to our Tin Box world. In fact, it turned out to be so much easier to look after a small person in a 7m box than at home. Clean clothes, nappies and muslins were all in arms reach. TBT even had her longest sleep to date – seven blissful overnight hours!
On a few of the days the weather was pretty rubbish so we just chilled out in the caravan. This is when Mr Tin Box asked TBT for a hand with the Times Crossword. I’m pretty sure she was more interested in the black and white shapes on the page than the answer to five down!
This was the start of a great relationship between TBT and the caravanning world. We can’t wait to introduce Tin Box Baby 2 to it as well.
