Every trip has to have a little drama...

...and this was no exception. Though all the logistics worked smoothly, we had a few panicked moments. Like trying to find a cab to take us to Paddington and thence the airport, and walking up and down the streets for far too long, until a nice cabbie took pity on us and made a U-turn to pick us up. Or the time Alison feared her wallet had disappeared at the Cabinet War Rooms, only to discover, after we had rushed back, that her string purse had merely worked its way around to her back. Or going through security at the end, where two of Alison's dangerous presents were confiscated, and in the confusion I left behind my silver bracelet and Skye necklace. Run, Lola, Run back to security, where they calmly handed them over. But all's well that ends well.
