So, we have had a bit of a break, and not been here for a while. Why, I hear you all ask - Well, we felt very brave and headed to France for our first summer holiday in 6 years. We stayed on a British campsite in a small french village for 2 weeks. Qasim spent all his time in the swimming pool, watching the birds and roosters, or playing chess with his older brothers. He had a great time!
It was a bit scary to be honest, going abroad with an OI child for the first time. What if we have a break? What if we need hospital treatment and can't speak enough French? We spent weeks planning beforehand, finding out where the hospitals are, how to get to them, and how to say Brittle Bones in french!
We got there in the end, though, and had an amazing time. The campsite, Camping de Courte Vallee, even held a quiz night in aid of the Brittle Bone Society, and raised £100!
We had no problems, thankfully, and we'd love to go there again next year.
Thanks to Jo, Alistair, and everyone at Camping de Courte Vallee for a fantastic break.
