We persuaded the children to go to France camping with us (using my free investor’s Eurotunnel passage) by offering to take them to Eurodisney. Our treat was a day in Paris.
When we arrived back in England we called on Les and Alex in Reading
and my mother in Oxford.
This was the first of an annual jaunt to France with the girls who fortunately look back on them with affection. For us they were quite hard going but well worth the effort.
