Dave's parents kindly dropped us off at our next stop - just south of Brussels with Robert (Dave worked with him in Brussels), Hannah, Sofie (3ish) and newborn Thomas.  They have built their own house which is great.  Spend a few days chilling as I am feeling a bit under the weather.  Think all the travelling around is starting to get to me - not that I should complain really.

Also spend the day in Brussels with Robert which is cool to do again and have a massive lunch on the touristy seafoody street.

Is weird playing with Sofie with our lack of Dutch and her lack of English but somehow we manage to get by.

On Friday we are informed that Charleroi airport is on strike on Monday - the day of our flight.  We look into various other options of how to get home as need to be back for Tues. All v expensive.  Eventually decide on cheapie Eurolines coach leaving at 6am (ouch) on Sunday.  Was not v painless until got to Calais and took a while to get on the eurotunnel and then ages driving up to London.

As we approached Victoria we got a text from Ryanair informing us the strike was off.  Not happy bunnys.

Get back to Bishops Stortford by tube and train very tired and generally not best pleased - home by 5pm.  Rest of family very supportive - not.
