i feel better now....



the plane has touched down in Copenhagen, havent heard from her yet but no doubt she will text soon.[i've been watching on flight tracker, never knew there was such a thing, isnt the web marvelous!]

38 kids left on her flight and there were heaps more going out at different times. The poor girl going to Poland only just her visa prior to checking in, so they were very relieved.

heres some photos from saying our goodbyes at the airport. Not too many tears....


n.b. never let hubby loose with camera, all his are out of focus as he cant see without his glasses.




Lucy, her bestie and boyfriend...


and Ted , did he make it....




he sure did...




totally revamped





and with a new scarf to keep him warm



oh that hospital was pretty good!


However.....

it wasnt all plain sailing.

the conversation went something like this...


Charlie: Mu-um, i always thought of teddy as a boy.

MuM: Well he is....

Charlie: but he looks like girl now...

MuM: Well, he's a gay boy now!

Love what you have done with Ted! I think he looks very flamboyant (HE HEE)and I know your daughter will be reminded of you and home every time she looks at him. She is going on a big adventure and I am sure she will miss home.
