As you are most likely aware, I take almost all of the photos in the Turner household. Some of you have been forced to endure viewing sessions of the annual cottage photo book. I always appreciate your oohs and aahs. And for those of you who have survived, you know two things: one, I take a lot of pictures; two, I am very rarely in any of them.

Eventually we selected a random hotel from tripadvisor and called them to collect us. Best move we made! The new place was half the price, and had double the amenities. I ended up with Flu (I think, or else I really have had dengue fever) and didn't leave the room or eat for ...
