Full Trip Report Index here:

It's the calm before the storm. Literally. The wind is picking up here in deepest, darkest Dorset as a storm blows in.

Not sure if The Express headline writer had one too many this lunchtime (hell storms, anyone?) but our plans to attend The Ellingham Show (country fair) near Ringwood have been scuppered as it has been cancelled, as has all the racing round the Isle of Wight.

Welcome to summer 2019 people! 😂😂

But amidst all the inevitable weather chaos, our preparations for our roadtrip are almost complete.

Our lovely car (named Spacey Stacey 😂 ) is now sporting a new hat (firmly secured!)

She's had a good clean and polish and will get a hoover out later.

Just had a mild panic about the car insurance.

A quick call to the insurers and £25 lighter and we're fully insured for when we hit France.

The girls have just come back from the salon. This has always been Paula's tradition of getting her nails done before the big holiday each year.

This year, Izzy and Charlie joined her. Their first pedicure, and they loved it.

Sounds like an expensive tradition if you ask me!

Another tradition is the girls get to paint a fingernail of mine 😂😂

I think they did a pretty good job of it. The deal is the nail polish has to stay on all holiday.

We'll see! 😉

This little bad boy is waiting for us for later. It's a Fortnum & Mason Pouilly Fume that I got from a previous boss last year. Looking forward to demolishing that one later haha!

So the plan for tomorrow (amidst the gales) is to go to the cinema to watch the new Lion King and have a takeaway tomorrow night - we're not cooking, we're on holiday! Woop woop!
