We’re not in Portugal. A Swiss bureaucratic nightmare wherein we discovered that our permits had expired, and even though we’d renewed them over three weeks ago, a backlog in the system meant we needed re-entry visa’s to return to Switzerland. In the past I’d just been given a letter. Cue mad rush to finish packing, get Munchkin (because they have to see the person the visa is for) etc only to miss by mere minutes as they closed for lunch. Returning when they reopened, only to have the process take so long that we missed last checkin by ten minutes. I have never, ever missed a flight so this annoys me no end.
Our only options for rebooking involved postponing our holiday for three days. So instead we cancelled everything (thank goodness for flexible travel arrangements!) and went for a drive. 

Then we all found a burst of excitement! We’re on a road trip, with no agenda other than the date we have be home! 

First stop Annecy for a glass of wine, a relaxing walk and a sushi dinner. No idea where we’ll go tomorrow… Possibly South.

Today I’m working on the last item on Munchkin’s birthday party To Do List! #AlmostThere #SoManythankyous #seriouslyspoiltthisbirthday #ICanRelaxTomorrow #ThenHolidays! #Seriously #PackingForPortugal #AfterALongWeekend

In what seems to be the most celebrated of #first #birthdays ever, today we got to give #presents as well as to receive them. Hilariously we ended up receiving exactly the same gift as we gave to one lovely little lady, and the other gave #Munchkin a #present the same as the one I have stashed away in the cupboard to give her tomorrow. The ladies have great taste! 
Tomorrow is Munchkin’s actual birthday. I think we’re going to have a low key day, ice cream in the park sounds amazing!

We had so much fun today at Munchkin’s party! I can’t believe that after all the weeks of planning, it’s all over! Well, almost over, we’re having a little party tomorrow with a couple of friends who couldn’t come today.
