I have breakfast on my own this morning. I love these Prothea hotels. NOT the kit at breakfast. He rolls over the floor and screams: 'I do not want this bread anymore'. As you expect, he gets something else. The screaming changes into: 'I am bored'. He can (of course) leave the table, to go and bother other people. Next thing: he throws an ORANGE …
After digesting our langoustines we drove
