WHERE THERE'S A WILL THERE'S.....

....A WAY. Which is today's prompt on HS:MS well away is but I couldn't think of a title for that so I sort of adapted it.
.

This shot has obviously not been taken today from not so sunny Cheshire with no coastline. It was taken in August on the way back from France. That big boat is our ferry which was quickly sailing away from us, taking the boys away from us. Don't worry though their Grandparents were on the boat with them. I had somehow managed to loose our passports on the way to the terminal so they wouldn't let us on the boat. We spent ages looking through everything and searching the car to find them but we couldn't. The nice French people phoned up the UK and then let us on the next boat home where we got through customs in this country without having to show any ID !! Sort of makes you feel safe and secure knowing that security has been stepped up with the threat of terrorists doesn't it. Anyway we got home and started emptying the car and found both passports in the back of the car in the foot well. We still can't understand how we missed them as 4 adults searched there in France at least 2 times each and didn't find them - strange.

I'm off for an afternoon of gossip with Mima this afternoon which should be fun.
Kyle is still loved up and has actually changed his undies for 7 days on the run now which is unheard of normally.

Cor, it's scary to think about losing your passport. Glad you got home and that you found them in the end though!

Enjoy your gossipy afternoon with Mima!

Passport dramas must also be quite scary, especially watching the boys sail away from you. I'm also looking forward to a gossipy afternoon, in fact - can't wait!

Tried to heckle the boy blogger but he stood me up! He'd gone for a wander when I got there, shall be having words with him!
