Yippee, tomorrow is the last day of school before the long summer break. Our two terrible teenagers are flying "alone" to Brittany tomorrow to stay with the grand-parents for a couple of weeks, while we drive up to Calais and the Euro Tunnel to spend one week camping " à la ferme" on the Surrey/Sussex border. Camping without electricity was just too difficult of O and C to comtemplate, hence their trip to Brittany.
Gaby, Alexis and Marie Kate will be able to enjoy a real (organic) working farm, fetching fresh eggs each morning, reading, dreaming and playing, what bliss.
We don't even have to shop, the farm has a "honesty shop" where we can stock up on organic sausages, eggs, milk, juice....et cetera, the list is long.
On the way back, we'll go to Brittany and pick up Oliver and Charlotte and spend perhaps another week there.
