  1. We came home out of Dieppe during the strike. "Never again" pretty much sums it up. That was a trip and a half!! One of this groups 24H specials, got into Plymouth quite knackered so made straight for the cain and kip. Vaguely aware of announcements,not really listening, drove off the ramps to find we were somewhere that was not Roscoff. Police and Press everywhere! Thank goodness for GPS, typed in "take us to the house" and off we went. 24h crossing? Like hell!! Everyday it looked like a settlement was imminent so we hung on. Our visit coincided with a sale on log stoves in bricomarche. Loaded one up with the forklift, then got to the house and the penny dropped that it had to come out of the van and up the flight of stairs into the house. Up the local, much hilarity and a posse of people put their pints down, and off loaded the item. 10 days later we were still there, the house redecorated, stove installed, home via Dieppe on what I thought was a cattle ferry. Sadly, in the rush to leave we had to miss some 10L cartons of rouge. The mice found them however, my, that was a nice suprise find when we next visited. Rhys
  2. Crashed like a drunk driving the wrong way up the M4 at 90 mph... I nearly amended my reservation too. Rhys
  3. Tried to pay EDF - card is invalid so it says. Rhys
  4. Trying to change a reservation today. Denies any of the sailings I have chosen off the menu exist, just after it offered them to me. Then immediately decides to lock me out altogether I'll try again tomorrow - might have more joy when everyone is in work. Oh hang on, are people going to work these days?? Rhys
  5. Mont St Michel is at sea heading for Portsmouth. Rhys
  6. I tried to check my account a few weeks ago and it was locked, would not tell me anything. I might try and pay EDF to see if the card is still valid. Rhys
  7. The camping les Castels (under new ownership) sent out a promo today - they are taking reservations for camping holidays from July. Pretty cheap too Rhys
  8. IQ of a plastic duck..... Looks like it's just as well we booked two weeks in September, thats two weeks quarantine in our house then home for two weeks quarantine here.... Whats not to like? R
  9. Perhaps a reservation in Sept was not a good idea. Feels like we may never see our house in Plouerdut again. Rhys
  10. Reserved for mid September, everything crossed. Overnight on bretagne - home daytine on PA. Tried to raise a query after the reservation, phones all out and online query form would not work. Rhys
  11. The management has written a shopping list, not sure a transporter will carry it all!! Payload is only 1400kg. Rhys
  12. There's the real issue, Red Cash has already gone (other issues at play there since Jean retired mind). Post the Great Retreat which is still rumbling in the background will allowances go right down? Will I end up trading my transporter for a microcar as I don't need the space any more. Rhys
  13. Any sign of a trolley token?
  14. Don't they have a Haynes Manual?? R
  15. One would hope so, but my source is a frequent flyer who commutes between by here and by there weekly. I just hope he stays a frequent flyer and not one time submariner... R
