We’ve arrived!


We’re here after 2 long flights. Thomas did amazingly and only really lost it in the final descent into Oklahoma City – by this time it was after midnight UK time – not bad for 21 months old! We’ve slept a bit and we’re off now to Walmart in our American car, having failed to pronounce Walmart properly when asking for directions! Aim to see consultant on Tuesday if the NHS has sent the papers……
