Penquin Glad you are safely back, I will read about the Pet Passport problem with interest.....

The key thing is that your journey is behind you, so you can relax and "enjoy" your familiar surroundings.

raynipper Pity you didn't stock up 50 miles from Calais Pat. Could have made a killing on toilet rolls.

patp We heard that the Santander ferry was cancelled, also that only one ferry was running and that from one of the French ports. Our fellow campers gave up on them and drove to the tunnel.

We drove up to the tunnel and, apart from a hiccough at the Pet Passport office which might go down as a diplomatic incident, just went straight to an empty lane. A minute later we were told to go down and board. The train left about 10 minutes later.

Will post about Pet Passports on the pets threads.

JanHank Thank goodness you're home at last, I was beginning to become a nervous wreck on your behalf.
I still have 2 friends in Spain, one is staying there until movement is allowed again the other has a Santander ferry booking for April 3 or 4 forget which because the Ferry operator has changed it a few times.

Welcome to your home, I bet Georgie is happy the long journey is over.

patp Thanks all!


Completely shattered as Chris cannot shake off his old boy racer days and has to beat a deadline of his own making.

House is freezing even though we left the heating on low. Will be fine once we warm the walls up. Can't find anything or remember how anything works. Hey ho.

Now got to figure out how to stock the larder. Shops were shut at Calais and so were the local shops last night (Sunday). Our village has set up a helpline for volunteers and all our friends are offering help. So nice to be back in the fold. Trouble is we are used to being the ones on the front line and it comes very hard to ask for help.
