1. Lots of different flavours at lunch.

2. The cats are anti social but Lily more than makes up for it.

3. We were supposed to be there to weed but we spend all the time harvesting various crops instead. Another few pounds of strawberries, another pound of mange tout and half a carrier full of broad beans.

4. We book the exact flights we want and, return for two, have change from £100. Even away from the mega deals of yore (we’ve had 1p flights in the past) this seems ludicrously cheap.
