A quiet, yet busy, week

This week hasn't been anything out of the ordinary, we've been busy with work and Lara, and Lucy popped over on Tuesday evening for a couple of nights, but other than that, it's been quite run of the mill.

Having said that, Olga did take Lara to the GP on Wednesday afternoon, after what seemed like a rash appeared on one of her legs. At first we feared it might be chicken pox, there's an "alert" abot it at the nursery, where they've had some cases recently in the older kids' room. Then we thought it might be a reaction to the MMR jab she had 5 weeks ago, it's not uncommon for rashes to appear associated with this, and it was in the area of her injections. In the end the GP felt it was "just one of those things" and nothing to worry about, and indeed it had cleared up on its own by Thursday morning.
She's still decided against walking, although there is more standing and wobbling going on, but when it comes to getting around, cruising on her knees is the preferred method. Everything in good time, we feel, there's no rush.

It's been a good week for news, not least that Lucy's visit gave us a chance to celebrate her engagement to Sergei! Does he know what he's letting himself in for, marrying a Medvedeva!!!?

Oh, and Olga is well on her way to becoming a fully fledged British woman, having passed her citizenship test with flying colours last Friday. She had to revise for literally 2 hours, but then again I suppose she's been revising on and off for the past 6 or 7 years. For the purposes of this blog I did google "typical British woman" and the first image returned was:

That was off a Polish forum website though....

Then there was this image (helpfully the image was called "fat-birds-drunk.jpg"):

So far, not so encouraging (and not so representative, of course!!) .. but there was one last photo which crept in, although it was representing "typical Canadian women":

I suppose it's one way to keep warm in winter.
