After only arriving at the hotel a few hours before, a 3am fire alarm was not what any of us wanted. But as the alarm continued to sound we evacuated the hotel.

Poor little CJ was very confused, he just wanted to be asleep in his cot not being walked round outside.

The staff were a waste of space and it was only down to the fact that two guests had fire management and alarm installation skills (who were luckily staying that night) that everything was sorted (a drunk was refused service at the bar so smashed an alarm).

Thankfully it wasn’t long before we could all had back to bed to get some more sleep before the long drive home.

CJ was amazing on the whole trip… Given we had driven almost 1000 miles in 5 days he managed to stay pretty patient the whole time – despite the many houses we saw, the late nights and lack of playtime.
