Hi Guys
Looks like you are really enjoying yourselves. Lovely warm weather - today was a shocker, rain, sleet and very cold in Wellies/Pram.
Had Paul, Greg and Vince for lunch on Sunday 4th, pork roast cooked by Veronica, I think they all enjoyed that.
This is a great site, look forward to reading about your progress into France.
It will be a great game on Sunday between Netherlands and Spain. Spain are awsome, Netherlands have the expectations factor on their side.
Corrie - Veronica wants to know if there lots of flowers around in Holland?
Lots of love
Mike and Veronica
Not that many flowers in Holland just lots of water and warm weather .The relations really made us fell welcome .Lourdes great .Placed a candle for you all .Will report in full later .
