We got back from Amsterdam at about mid-morning yesterday after a rather sleepless ferry-crossing (Item had her periodic leg cramps), disembarkation at 6.30, and a rail-replacement journey in a coach between Harwich and London.
Item went straight to a birthday party and then trick-or-treating! But we knew she had had enough when she burst into furious tears upon being told it was "trick or", not "trickle treating".
We had an excellent time in Amsterdam and despite our avowed intention to relax, packed an awful lot
This is the view from our houseboat. I miss it already.
