So what about you?

Come on, be serious.

I really want to know.

Come on think about it.

You can go anywhere you want and

you can have anything your heart desires...

...but you can never leave.

You're going to have to stay there forever.


It's fun it's like the ultimate fantasy.

I'd stay here then.


- In Sihanoukville?

- Yeah, definitely.

I mean maybe not in

Sihanoukville exactly but...

...but yeah, maybe somewhere in southeast Asia.



- Pretty cool.

- Yeah, it's alright.


Have a good day.


Oh my God, look!

Oh my God!




Come Jeremy.

Have fun guys.

Wish you were here.


Thank you.

- Hey Margie.

- Hello Dave.

Look at you come here kiss me!

Daddy I miss you.

How are ya?

Aw I missed you guys!

Give me a kiss on the cheek.

How are you?

Lots of dinosaurs came and...

Wanted more water than the big ones...

...so the big dinosaur ate the baby one up and then spat

the little one out and put his foot on the little one.

- That sounds a bit mean really the big one. Doesn't it?

- Do you know what kind of dinosaur that was?


- Do you think it was a Brontosaurus?

- No.

- Was it was it...a Prenocefale?

- No!


Not a Prenocefale?

Do you think it was a Do-you-think-he-saw-us?

Or I tripped over and Now-my-leg-is-sore-us?


No - Daddy that's a bit of a silly one.

So first of all I'm pretending to chew

a chocolate bar like this.

...and then you say "what you have got there?"

What you got there?

And then I say...

...a chocolate bar.

And then you say "where did you get it?"

Where did you get?

...and then I say "donkey dropped it".

- That's a bit yucky.

- Yeah

That's a good joke, Holly.

- Who wants to hear my joke?

- Me


- Knock, knock!

- Who's there?

A Dinosaur Goes.

- A Dinosaur Goes who?

No a dinosaur goes ROAR!

- That's a genuinely funny one.

- I think I really scared them.

- Did you have a bit of a fright, Max?

- No.

thinking of you xx

- Are you watching this bar babe? It's nearly 9 o'clock

- Yeah, yup I'm on it!

Go on you two.

Are you awake?


I kept thinking maybe I

should have stayed there with her.


I think what we should do is

we should go down to the pool...

...and we'll just have a take a look around ourselves...

...and if we see that shark...

...guess what? We're gonna do our lesson on another day


Are you gonna go and grab your goggles?

So we can go?

Good boy sweetie.

Okay, because it's irrelevant.

I'm serious.

Just leave it al...

- Everything OK?

- Yup

What time will you be back?

No news?

Uh that was...

Get your backpacks on and I'll meet you

outside OK? We'll go to the backdoor.

Don't know babe about 1:00, 1:30.

You gonna go to the workshop? Or...

Uh I've got a pile of stuff to do here today.

Alright well, good luck.

See you later.

- Have fun

- Bye. Say bye to daddy.

Bye Dad.

- See you.

- Bye.

See you mate!

I'm here. Can you...yeah...

Calm down.

Calm down.

Okay, glasses off.

Thank you.

Just...chin up.

Smile if you like.

- Hey ah... I've got a...

- Here!

Hey Jeremy you're looking good there.

What are you doing?

What are you doing?

- Eh?

- What are you do...

Turn it off...

Happy Birthday

...apple and you can be...

- A strawberry

- Yes!

Um...a little mango.

Uh the party was the night of the 17th

so we'll be hearing tonight

And...you know, everyone still

actually really positive.

Apparently 99% of these cases

the person turns up again within 2 weeks.

But where would he go?


We just...We just don't know...about...

None of it really makes very much sense.
