Julie is just back from a fortnight's holiday (yes, an actual HOLIDAY) in Holland – land of the clog and windmill. Not many clogs, er, clocked but plenty windmills, including this one (pictured) from 1887 that's STILL working, making flour using the same methods from when it was first built. She chickened out going right to the top but the rest of Team Thomson were gung-ho and climbed the five floors of vertical steps to wave at her from the top. Julie bought herself a present prior to going – a pair of roller boots! Cue much laughter in the studio as she channelled her inner RollerGirl while doing a fantastic impression of Bambi. Sadly, at the time of writing, video footage is no longer available...
