  1. Fabulous! sounds like an enviable feast. No doubt you were treated like royalty by these lovely people. Hopefully they liked your gifts as much as you enjoyed their hospitality. Beautiful photos and another camp out. Was it cold Eliza?? Aunty Alexa and Nana loving the blog and photos. What a journey you’re all on x

  2. Sounds like you might all need to go for a long run rather than a sleep after all that food. Hope the families were pleased with their presents, I’m sure the families loved meeting you all. Oliver feel free to invite them all back to Grannie’s house, she’s the only person I know who can compete with producing that amount of food. By the way, i’ve Taught Nelson “paw” , and got rid of Immie to Camberley Unit for the weekend! She’s really looking forward to seeing you though xx

  3. Great photo Ben! We are all looking forward to seeing you….the house is far too quiet! I suspect with all that food you won’t need to go for pancakes at Bill’s when you get back?
    See you soon
    Mum, Dad and Jordan xx

  4. Have alerted the airline. They have kicked off 8 skinny passengers to accommodate the “ stuffed” little British kids!
    It sounds amazing!
    I hope they have enjoyed your company as much as I have enjoyed your blogs and photos!
