9 Palmers (and a pre-Palmer bump) go Mad in Two Tents!

We've just had a fantastic week in the UK with the Palmers. We gave Alan some peace and left him in Switzerland! The weather was terrible, wet and windy, but isn't that always the case when you go camping!

The boys were delighted by the novely of camping! We had 2 tents. Kate, I, P and J in one. Chris, Tamsin & bump, D, W and Markus in the other.

P and J slept quite well, curled up on the lilo in their half of the tent, like little dormouses. P kept rolling into J, who would then push him away! The adults were sitting in one tent having drinks, and W, D and M in the other tent were having a committee meeting, which we could hear in full detail! They kept sending M over with a litany of complaints, and reasons for why they couldn't sleep! We struggled to keep a straight face each time, then kept sending M back to them. The final trip was all 3 retrobates!

Plane back was delayed, i got home back to Zurich with 6 hours to unpack, repack, sleep and get back to Zurich Airport in time for the early, early morning plane to Wroclaw. Yawn. More in next blog!

Bookworm boys on the plane over!
