Kate puked up all day on the ferry. Then, when we got in the camper, we noticed we’d left the very small light on that comes on when you open the door. Battery was flat. So we got a push off, and immediately the noise started again. I thought I’d get out of the port and pull [...]

A twenty minute jaunt to the ferry turned into a stressful nightmare when first all the lights were on red in the middle of Bilbao FOR EVER and we’d decided to risk it and bomb over to the Guggenheim this morning. THEN! OMFG! There was a horrendous noise in the back of the camper. It [...]

Fun sur la plage

Well, we got kicked out of the hotel as it was full. So we wandered down to the beach and found a nice campsite 5 mins from the sea. Well, that’s a French 5 mins without two hot baby boys refusing to walk in the desert sun – unless there was a football in front [...]

Oh, forgot to say… Dylan did a poo on the hotel floor in reception. He just ran up to Kate and said, mummy! I done poo! And there it was. Now I’m not sure what happened then because there was the poo just sat there in plain sight, but no one either saw it or [...]
