Kevin and I got invited to a wedding in England for a couple he had met in Fiji a few years ago, and part of the timing for the trip was for the wedding. It was a quick in-and-out on the Eurostar and up to Great Yarmouth for the wedding....Back down Sunday to friends', who are joining us in Greece. Only on the way to their house did I discover how close Hever Castle, the childhood home of Ann Boleyn, was to time.... The good news is that the weather was a little cooler than Paris, but also perfect for the wedding. Back into Paris, to hunker down to some major sightseeing, on Monday.... read more

Yesterday we played on the beach at Hembsy, where grandad built me two sandcastles to knock down before he broke the spade, and I nearly made nanny jump waves in the sea - but at the last second I decided it looked far too cold! Mummy, daddy, nanny and grandad played crazy golf too but I was made to stay in my buggy :-( I didn't mind really it was good to see them playing, and to laugh at mummy - she was rubbish! Back at the campsite we played football and I chased lots of bubbles that I made everyone blow. After a quick pub meal we went ... read more
