Here we are at the bus station waiting for the coach to take us to Heathrow. She is wearing 3 scarfs, two belts, 3 cardigans, 1 hoody and all her jewelry!!! it meant that the weight of the suitcase came in on target!
Terminal 5 at Heathrow. Checked in the suitcase, her visa had to be checked by someone who could read Russian, it was fine and she could travel. We had dinner in a restaurant, just a light burger and chips for Alice. I don't know how she can eat so much just before flying, but she is not worried, unlike me.
The best bit of news I found out was that you CAN now take your knitting needles on a flight - oh joy!
I left Alice to go through security with a very quick goodbye. See you soon, have a wonderful time and learn to speak fluent Russian soon.
Home late after the bus had to take a detour as a road was closed. She posted a photo on Facebook this afternoon, she had arrived safely. Looking forward to lots of blog posts to hear all about her latest adventure.
And as for me after 2 months of having dinner cooked every night, I have to reaquaint myself with the oven........
