messageI'm off to the Fort for the summer
Posted by Bob Buzzard July 09, 08:39PM

The kids have finished school and the house has been rented out on Airbnb, so I'm off to the Fort for the summer in my caravan. I'll be offline apart from watching Stranger Things and OITNB. I'll be having a big fire every Friday if anyone wants to join me (I like the craft beer from the beer shop on LL).

In Dulwich - it's the only time of year I leave the bounds of ED.

Aah , I thought it rang a bell - a scout campsite up near Dulwich College .If it weren't for the fact that groups of ppl will also be there I'd be envious .

Have a lovely summer .

Sounds great. I trust there are rousing choruses of The Quartermaster's Stores round the Friday bonfire? Speaking of which, where do you get the sustainable smokeless fuel for it?

I get my HETAS approved kiln dried logs from Log-a-Log in Shropshire. I'll be up at the Fort once I've got the caravan packed.

Mrs Bob will be joining me at the weekends once she has sorted our Airbnb lodgers out each week.

5* hostess I believe Bob. You must be very proud of the effort she puts in. All lodgers leave satisfied and happy. Tell her to keep it up.

Itís great renting four of our five bedrooms out on Airbnb during the summer, because the ĎRent a Roomí Scheme lets you earn up to a threshold of £7,500 per year tax-free from letting out furnished accommodation in your home. Someone has to be resident, hence why Mrs Bob stays there.

Mrs Bob. Such a trouper. Always sacrifices her needs for yours. At least she gets to join you at the weekend. Im sure she takes comfort in that Bob...

I've forgotten to bring the blue Elsan liquid for the caravan toilet - if anyone is coming up for the fire tonight has any - could you bring some with you please?

Iím still up at the Fort - remember itís a fire on Fridays - just bring some craft beer from that beer shop on LL.

Has anyone been to Saucy yet?

I'm finding this rather surreal. Can anyone explain. I understand that in Italy they pack up and go for the beach for the summer. And in Sweden they do similar because everyone has a cottage on the archipelago. I'm just confused about spending the summer on the ridge of the Great North Wood.

Ours is not to question the buzzard malumbu, he is a unique Dulwich character with a unique lifestyle.

I wonder if they sing camp fire songs?

Last chance for a Friday night fire this week - I'll be coming back to ED on Sunday. I need to get the kids ready for school next week. The youngest is joining his older brothers at the same senior school, so they'll all be at the same school for 1 year until the eldest finishes the Upper 6th.

Is this a joke or are you really intending to light up a fire somewhere?

Seems very irresponsible to me. Just had a neighbour halfway down to me tonight start a bonfire and the smoke was quite acrid. I thought there was a fire stared somewhere as the smoke was choking.

It's a campfire up at the Fort.
