LWD couldn’t contain herself when the descendants arrived, there was the whole body wag, the excitement yips and whimpers, the allover quivering and the gasping for breath. Yea, the pack is together!! The following Wednesday morning she couldn’t quite understand why the rest of the pack didn’t turn up. We left for pastures new rapidly; before she could get depressed.
Whilst the descendants were here we did did a trip into Barça so that the football fan could visit Nou Camp, wearing his Maidenhead United supporters gear of course! I think I’m safe in saying that that is the closest Maidenhead United will ever get to Nou Camp! (They did also visit several other tourist must visit sites.)
We went to a couple of markets, sat on the beach, mooched and generally holidayed for the six days they were here. I took The Smart One on a train trip to Mataro which, it being Monday, was almost closed but he enjoyed himself, and all too soon their Departure Day arrived.
In the meantime having heard from the Mad Dutch Couple that they’d had enough of the Northern European weather and were headed south, when the descendants left I headed north and am now in Anduze (France) and am typing this whilst well under the influence – situation normal for being with Meriam and Paul! They are both well and it’s lovely to see them again. LWD has forgotten that the descendants have gone and is delighted to be reunited with her favourite Dutch friends (faithless bitch!).
P.S. I am happy to report that K did NOT buy the red sombrero but she did buy a fabulous red handbag.
