He collapsed while on a school trip in Morocco.
We've arrived!!!! Landed at Marrakech airport around 4pm (via a nutritious lunch of porridge and red wine on the plane, oops. Did you know BA doesn't do in-flight meals anymore? Porridge was the only healthy wheat-free (but not gluten-free, boo hiss) option they had) and cruised through about seven security checks to the luggage reclaim.
During our stay in Marrakech, my husband Steve and I were invited to take part in a cookery class with The Sanssouci Collection at Les Cigognes Hotel, which has been the leading Moroccan cookery school for the last 15 years.

Riad Farnatchi is beautiful and completely traditional in its style with handmade Moroccan furniture and furnishings, which have all been especially designed for them. The Riad features a newly opened spa, which is wonderfully luxurious with ornate woodwork and black and white patterned tiles, and a new restaurant, Le Trou Au Mur, will open in October.
Our starters arrived not long afterwards, and the Moroccan Salads were brought over to us on a tall metal cake stand, which was filled with small dishes. Each salad was refreshing, and full of flavour and I especially enjoyed the green beans and the fennel.
On our second night in Marrakech we had dinner booked at The Selman hotel, which is a 5 star hotel situated about 15minutes outside the centre. Prior to dinner we decided to visit the La Mamounia hotel for cocktails, as we'd been recommended by friends that it was a must whilst in Marrakech, and we sat in the pretty gardens and enjoyed a refreshing early evening cocktail each.
So, I finally made it to Club Med. during the most momentous week in recent British history we made our Brexit to Marrakech. I almost feel like I've made a joke in poor taste, such is the panic back at home.
