Renovation Project, the daughters arrive - Friday 21st September 2012

Renovation Project, the daughters arrive - Friday 21st September

This is it, the big day has arrived, we spend the morning cleaning the car and house once more, visiting Sheila and Brian to check everything is in place and we’re all sorted.

I speak to my brother before we leave who informs us that Brittany Ferries have gone on strike and there are no ferries until further notice, this is not good news as they were due to arrive as our daughters left, they are going to continue looking for alternative ferries.

French strikes and demonstrations are quite different to the English version, as they continue until something changes!

We arrive at the airport just as the plane has landed, so its perfect timing, it is so hard to describe the total elation felt as we saw them come through the arrivals gate.

We hear the tales from East Midlands Airport where they were both drug tested and made to remove shoes!!!!!!!!  Bad enough under normal circumstances but when your pregnant belly doesn’t let you bend down to put them back on, this is not good, I think a letter of complaint will be going in (when I have time!).

We all go to Dinan for moules et frites and have a lovely time wandering around.

The drive home seems very short as we are trying to 3 months into 2 hours!
It’s a very quick visit to the house and then out for dinner, via a walk by the lake.

I am amazed to see my daughter devour steak and chips; she normally has the appetite of a sparrow. After the food and travel, baby tiredness kicks n and we head off to Sheila’s which gives John and his daughter time alone to catch up.
