CommentI indebted to Freda for her (remote) culinary skills, never before has tea, maxim & diesel been combined to such good effect; Neil for his calmness under pressure as I repeatedly turned away to explore Belgium; Jim for his linguistic skills, I am amazed at his versatile use of the “F” word , and Kate for her aim with the feeding bottle….and Sam of course for her quiet professionalism and piercing shriek when it finally looked like I would actually make it...
