Three days. Three days to build memories and new connections. Ellie’s partner Ed has three children, and the two youngest made an instant Gang of Three with William, sharing a bedroom and every waking moment together. Adults and older children mucked in and just had fun.
There was a snag, and it was a big one. Poor Ben woke up on Friday with tonsillitis, had to see s doctor for drugs and advice, and vanished to his room to feel rotten for two whole days. Day three had him making up for lost time.
We spent lots of time sharing meals.
Aside from that there were praying mantises to admire…
….. new foods to discover…
…. traditional Catalan dancing to enjoy…..
….. and charming mediaeval townships to mooch through….
It was a fine weekend.
