A grand day out in Bristol
When our son Rory left home, I wondered whether it would be the end of family holidays. Thankfully, that's not been the case. I'm not sure if this is because he genuinely enjoys our company or whether he's lured by the offer of a free trip.
Last week we tempted him and his girlfriend Amelia to join us in the Cotswolds for a few days. We rented a stunning property in Lower Mill Estate and dangled the carrot of free dinners, a full fridge and a hot tub.
The kids were keen to explore Bristol on one of the days so we tagged along, sensibly splitting up when we arrived. Whereas the younger pair were in a shopping mood, Dougie and I were keen to do more traditional sightseeing. That is until we realised Wallace and Gromit were in town.
