Sad reflections on a near miss

Updated: Oct 4

I was disappointed I was unable to buy the van I wanted. But I took heart that there are others out there and I am determined to find one that suits me. This video offers some reflections on my day trip to visit the van.

Unable to buy the van I liked, I was disappointed - but took heart that there are others ‘out there’ and I am determined to find one that suits me.

A couple of comments:

LEE: 4 solar panels a bit of an overkill to be honest Kaye .. also consider going for a fixed bed . I’m doing the same as you and glad I opted for a fixed bed .. hope this helps

Thanks LEE. You are probably right. I don't know what I'm talking about half the time with this van stuff as I'm just taking advice from everyone on these groups and listening/watching YT videos on the subject. Overall, I'm getting some valuable lessons and I'm learning lots.

NANCY: your bed will be your most important decision. If you are not sleeping comfortably, and getting the rest you need, nothing else will work well.

I do not get paid for my private work - I operate a non-profit service.  I admit I am 'unemployed' (i.e. not in regular employment, since the start of the first lockdown in the UK in March 2020) and, along with the other 3 million people in this country, I do not receve any government handout or grants. 
However, I do have to spend money on continual training, professional registration, insurance, travel and administrative costs (such as website hosting etc.) and, for this reason, I welcome donations for my counselling service.  This allows me to offer therapy/counselling for FREE to those who need or want it.  If you would like to contribute to that work, feel free to click the donate button to the right of your screen.  You'll be taken through to the page on BewleyTherapy where you can do this.
Thank you.
