    2300 miles! On crimea...! Woohoo! Charlie's starting to realise just how lucky he is to be with 2 girls... Becky bribed border guard without realising, 10 of us attended ukrainian wedding party cos father of bride wouldn't let go of them and through their combined 'talking to tire' tactic and russian they cut a deal with police over speeding fine... All hilarious! Hope all's really good. Lots love x x x
