LIVE BLOG - The Long Time Coming Trip - Travel Day

So today is journey day, from East Dorset to Folkestone. With three children. In one car. Under the remnants of a hurricane. Perfect!

The day started in time honoured fashion. A Beefeater breakfast! Great food, but lousy service. We were greeted by the manager with a tut and sigh. Not only that, but she sent away a young couple at 10am as there were no free tables. (Apart from the two free ones next to us apparently) Anyway, I sent a delightfully passive-aggressive Tweet to their Twitter account!

The journey, as expected, was LONG. The remnants of hurricane Bertha was causing merry havoc today, we had only travelled 5 miles to Ringwood and we already had hit delays.

We left home at 11.15, and arrived at Eurotunnel departures at 3.30pm, a good hour later than planned.



Here's the moment 'auntie Mel' on DIBBCAST broke the news to the kids that we weren't travelling to Cornwall, but actually heading to DLP!

Isobel's response? "You lied to us! You said we were going to Cornwall, but you lied!" Kids, gotta love them apparently.

Anyway we're ensconced in the Holiday Inn Coquelles for the night, ready for part two of the journey tomorrow... To Chez Mickey!

A bientot!



Thanks folks!

Time for a nightcap. I'm not sure why the picture is like this. I've barely touched a drop your honour!

Rob, Paula & Co - you're off on a great adventure with THE mouse. And you'll get to ride Ratatouille - I'm SO jealous. Kids - we ll knew the secret but your dad swore us to secrecy. And Rob - lying to your own child. How could you? Izzy - make him suffer for it (pocket-wise).

Hey BD Clan, How exciting - have a great time and make sure you take loads of photos of Ratatouille.
Now, you Mum and Dad really, really want to ride "It's a Small World" loads of times, so make sure that happens! ;-)
