OK, this is the ultimate self serving post.

It looks very much as if our family holiday this year is going to be screwed up by a case taking longer than expected. We were planning to go to a lovely thatched cottage on the Normandy coast. Unfortunately, in the only other week we’re free during the school holiday period, the house is booked.


So it is all terribly boo hoo.


I don’t suppose any readers of HP might have a holiday house somewhere nice that we could exchange for a week in mid August? In return, you’d be able to use the house in Normandy for a week’s holiday any time you wanted to during the year. If you live in London, you could even get over there in about 5 hours for a dirty weekend with your beloved…

Well, there’s no harm in asking, is there?
