A Photo Album At Last

The travellers got home safe and sound early on Monday morning. The flight from Helsinki was a little delayed in taking off, which gave Lara the excuse for her only tantrum of the return trip, and this was just five minutes of loud sulking because she had to sit in her seat with her seatbelt on while the plane was delayed. Other than that she was very well behaved, and a pattern seemed to emerge of her falling asleep with half an hour or so of the flight to go, so after two and a half hours in the air. This will be worth remembering if we take her on a longer flight anywhere.
Her rash had recurred a little while she was away, but anti-histamines seemed to keep it under control, but there was one day when it was quite uncomfortable for her in the nappy area, and she spent much of that day lounging around watching Winnie the Pooh DVDs on Luda's laptop. The discomfort only seemed to last a day, and by the time she came home she was absolutely fine. We wondered if the drastic change in diet might have triggered it, the milk is certainly different there, and many of the foods contain additives or flavourings that she wouldn't be used to. Anyway, she coped like the little trooper she is, and even a sore ankle didn;t stop her running around, albeit with a limp. Maybe she twisted it when no-one was looking, but again, she was fine by the time she came running up to me in the Arrivals Hall in T3 at Heathrow on Monday morning.
Anyway, Olga managed to keep the photograph & video collection down to a very impressive 65 files, and I've trimmed it down to 30, with self-explanatory captions... enjoy!
