We're all going on a summer holiday.....


They sailed from Southampton to Bilbao, tested the waters of northern Spain, then, when at their destination, took to the boats again for a few laps around the pool. A holiday isn't a holiday without lots of water.

It's that time of year when small clothes are to be seen hanging on the washing line, and I'm called 'Grumpy' for a couple of weeks (not, this time, by Lady M).

Harvey J and Ollie (plus their parents) are with us again. Favourite toys have been re-discovered, scuffles break out over who plays with what, and chaos reigns where previously there was calm. It's WONDERFUL.

  1. They grow up all too quickly. We will now have to wait for the great-grandchildren to have young ones around us again.

  3. We drove down to the fabulous lake in Sanguinet with the youngest, when H.I.'s daughter was pregnant with the youngest. What a fabulous piece of safe water - tree-fringed white sand slowly declining to crystal clear shallows for 500 yards. It was here that he said his first sentence: I said, "Get into the water, Marsden," and he said, "No, YOU get into the water!" He's now 19, and I miss the little boy.
