Big smiley for MIL enabling first ever ice cream cone smile. But the rest was very depressing. We're off to Spain next Tuesday and I always dread going through security as I worry about being challenged re: medicine, epi-pens, food etc - I am always clutching DS's letter from the consultant and can literally feel the adrenaline pumping through my body I'm so stressed! It all went really well last time we went (Easter time) so I'm hoping it will again this time as we're flying from same airport (Bristol) with same airline (EasyJet). Fingers crossed. I just can't believe that people can be as ignorant, selfish and down right rude as the guy on your plane. What is wrong with these people?

Wow - where did your MIL find the ices cream cones? I have been looking for some for ages!!

That horrible man on your plane is shock shock shock and I don't know how you kept your cool! I suppose being as ignorant and selfish as that is kind of its own punishment...

(actually, it sounds so incredibly rude and inappropriate that I wonder if he had some sort of mental health issue - there is a guy living opposite my house who used to make a habit of shouting awful things, really loudly in the street, but he has been fine since his medication has been sorted out.)

That man sounds like an utter twat! You would think that, on finding out you were protecting a young child, he would have been ashamed of himself!

aarghh, there's always one, babybarrister! well done for standing up to him even though it sounds like your words fell on deaf ears.

glad to hear you are managing on holiday and MIL is earning a few stars smile

anyone after icecream cones, I think Sainsburys sell some made by a company called Carousel. Not sure if they are with the usual wafers/cones or in the free from section but I'm sure that's where I got them! Another place is Lidl, which sell a dairy free waffle type cone. I bought a box there about a month ago but not sure if its a permanent stock item or one of their specials that they bring in now and then

they do exist in the Uk so good luck hunting them down. DD loves being able to have an icecream cone like all her friends smile

Sorry but I did LOL at 'baked bean bomb' grin

This is what gets me though, you do plans for this that and everything else and someone somewhere thinks you do it for fun. hmm

I love the idea of you handing this guy a leaflet, it usually shuts people like this up when they get a calm reaction. I'm surprised he didn't get the wet fish or epi-pen up his bum though. wink

Oh and great to hear MIL is trying so hard and are the local people, it restores your faith doesn't it.

I am going to Aldi/ lidl/ Sainbos to get stuff for DS birthday. I'll check Aldi/Lidl for cones and report back.

And now I can't get an orange cape with baked bean style spots on it out of my mind. grin
