This is a question Family Holidays

Back in the 80s when my Dad got made redundant (hello Dad!), he spent all the redundancy money on one of those big motor caravans.

Us kids loved it, apart from when my sister threw up on my sleeping bag, but looking back I'm not so sure my mum did. There was a certain tension every time the big van was even mentioned, let alone driven around France for weeks on end with her still having to cook and do all the washing.

What went wrong, what went right, and how did you survive the shame of having your family with you as a teenager?

never again
My mum and my sister have never got on. A few years ago my mum decided she wanted a family holiday with all her children and grandchildren so we all gathered up our kids and went to a villa in Portugal for a fortnight. Where it pissed down for 13 of the 14 days.

There were 8 adults and 7 kids crammed into the villa. It wasn't too bad the first day then it became apparent that my mum had forgotten her HRT. Normally when my sister makes snide little remarks to my mum she ignores them but this time she gave as good as she got.

I told my son recently that he should moderate his language in front of my mum because she doesn't swear. "Yes she does" he replied, "she swore a lot when we were in Portugal."

I must have blanked it from my mind.
