The children have been on half term this week and to begin the half term we took a quick hop across the channel to go and see Aunty Su, Uncle George, Hannah, Zoe and Ciaran, who we have not seen in over 3 years.
After a very calm crossing on the ferry and getting stuck in the rush hour traffic in Antwerp we made to the Belguim, Holland border where Su and the children were waiting for us.Â
Whilst we were there we spent time visiting Eindhoven, playing in this fantastic woodland playpark (perhaps Aunty Su can tell us the name of it) and swimming and playing in this superb indoor lagoon with lots of slides and wavepools. The children loved it and I think so did Mummy.Â She was desperate to get all theÂ girls on this one slide that tookÂ you into a big bowlÂ thatÂ you went round andÂ around in until you dropped out of the bottom into a deep pool.Â Â Elizabeth and Emily had to take aÂ swim test to show the lifeguards thatÂ they could swim before they were let on. They passed and had aÂ whale of a time.Â
It was absolutely great to see all the children playing together getting to know each other and having a great time.Â
