To update y’all:
– The van’s still missing. The cops seem confident we’ll find it again. In what condition is another matter.
– This, combined with serious visa issues, means that our travel plans are potentially significantly set back, seeing as we were planning to sell the van ASAP and use the cash to subsidise the trip.
– Ella’s latest commentary on the whole affair includes “Whoever stole our van is very, very naughty!” and “Tonight I’m having booby ice-cream.” Don’t ask.
