A day to cycle!

Another sunny/cloudy day in France. No porridge this morning so Donald had sugar puffs for the first time in years! Children all fed and juiced; some may even have brushed their teeth before “bike ability x2” and a leisurely cycle through the forest trails in search of an ice cream van. Donald back to “speech […]
