It seems to be common amongst regular long-haul flyers that they end up with coughs, colds, and general chesty complaints; Wills is no exception.
Not only did he spend much of his pre-Christmas time with us, coughing, sneezing, and drinking gallons of honey/lemon concoctions, but he also subjected himself to inhaling vicious smelling Tiger Balm infusions (above).
Not being 100% compos mentis when booking an hotel for his return journey to Germany, he also managed to confuse Orléans with New Orleans, and inadvertently booked an overnight stay 4,800 miles away from where he wished to be. Luckily, after some difficulty, this was later rectified.
Wills being veggie, we happily survived without any meat for over a week. I don't think it would have lasted if he'd been here for Christmas day.
Anyway his trip was a success, even if he did overstay in Europe and miss Bunny's first Christmas (and his first as a married man). Luckily the lovely Kellogg is very (?) forgiving.
Next time he visits he should be accompanied by the rest of the family..... We can't wait.
Wills is now back in Australia.
p.s. Do you know how many languages your children speak? Imagine my surprise when I heard Wills speaking German when booking his Dusseldorf Hotel room; I had no idea!
