Her tiny toes perched atop her father’s feet and they danced together. Spinning around and gliding from one side of the caravan to the other. From the street, their neighbours would have only seen a man swaying listlessly from side-to-side. But for those inside the van, it was a night time dance party in the driveway. The three girls laughed and their parents smiled Cheshire Cat grins.
He took his wife’s hand and pulled her close. The sound of their children’s giggles tinkled in the background like fairy glitter. Her heart filled with pure joy. A single tear rolled down her cheek. This moment is a memory shared, never to be lost.

One day we will take her out of the driveway on a proper adventure. In the meantime, have you got any decorating tips for us?
