An eventful couple of days...part 1

So much has happened in the last couple of days! First we moved house. We got keys to the new place at 1.30 in the afternoon. The van we had to move was a bit smaller than we had last time which meant we finished moving at 22.30. Both totally starving at this point we went to find something to eat. There weren't much open in the form of takeaways but we found this lovely indian place just around the corner that did beautiful curries.

Next morning after a freezing cold night we got up at 5.30 to pack to leave to Finland. We left the house 7ish and headed south. The weather was gorgeous, frosty cold with pastelly sunrise. We got to Gaenors at about 1.3pm. traffic was nice and easy all the way. She made us some tasty and filling lunch and then we were off to the airport...

In case you don't know, the last couple of days have been total chaous (can't get the link button to work but you can go and have a look at http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/6205247.stm) at Heathrow. With all internal and most of european flights cancelled because of dense fog- The fog doesn't affect flying but the ground stuff directing the planes around the airport and putting hte bags in etc are effected by it.

Ok the shower is finally free and I've got 30 minutes before we are off to the countryside. (we are at my sisters so there are 4 of us waiting for the shower). So hopefully at some point later I'll have time to tell about our Heathrow experience...
