Isn't modern communication great? We can see Lucie any time we want and she loves it too.
We are now back home. A little jet-lagged but not too bad. I actually managed a little sleep on the plane which is unusual for me.
Spring seems to have sprung while we were away. The temperature hasn't been above -10c during our holiday and on one occasion was -23 (-30 with windchill) Somehow the dry cold is easier to manage with the correct clothing
