A Breton Fisherman yesterday
Further to our recent family holiday to Brittany, I thought it best to write down some mental notes for future holidays:
1) Do remember never to go on a ferry ever again. Unless I want to spend another entire 5 hour crossing sitting out on a windswept deck like a rather queasy-looking Captain Ahab.
(Image from here)Please note, this is an artist's impression - my actual wooden leg is much more finely turned than that.
2) Do pack ear plugs for car journeys to lessen the damage to eardrums from the incessant "I WANT TO GO HOME/ARE WE THERE YET" choruses from the back seat.
3) Do remember to pray daily at the altar of Saint Usbourne of Stickerbooks - the patron saint of all camping holidays.
4) Don't hold younger daughter's Chuppa Chupp for her while she puts her shoes on, decide to have a cheeky suck, wonder what that sharp bit on it is, wow, actually that is really weird, it's like a stinging sensation, feels almost as if it's a, a, a, oh fuck, a wasp inside my mouth, ow, now it is really stinging me lots, better spit that out then.
Ah, it's good to get away. Better to get back though.
