Expensive holiday

Writing about Went on holiday, sun shone, broke down from [Ux]

Car breaking down on holiday did rather put a dampner on things although we tried not to let it! Fortunately, we had various batches of family join us at different parts of the week so we weren't totally stranded. And on the bright side, there are worse places to be than a 4 bedroomed bungalow on top of a cliff in one of the prettiest parts of Cornwall! The day trip to the Eden Project was cramped though – Steve's sister Tracey, and Steve in front of her 306, and me wedged between what now seem like the biggest child seats ever (containing our daughter Emily, and our niece Jessica).

In between the relay from Cornwall to Coventry, our car was towed back to the bungalow in Polperro. Some frustration was relieved by my booting a wheel each time I went passed it! And Emily pulled out one of her many cutie cards by giving the poorly car a kiss each time!

Grrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!

    Booting the wheels is probably all the Ford dealer will do for their £1200…

    ..and anyway, I thought the rendition of 'Baa Baa Black Sheep' coming from the back seat on the way to Eden gained enormously from the addition of someone who knows ALL the words :-)
