Midnight Snacks On The Bed

Thursday, March 25th, 2010

The 12th of February saw us start our journey to Britain. We decided to break the journey by staying overnight in Istanbul. Although we didn’t see much of the city, it was good to finally make it out of the airport. Anna behaved incredibly well, considering the flight lengths, her age, and didn’t seem too bothered by staying the night in a hotel. She had a little picnic on our bed before settling down for the night, and continued to surprise us by being a little sweetie on the flight to Heathrow.
Hopefully she will repeat the trick in just over four days, though this time we are flying straight through to Astana, assuming we manage to make the connecting flight in Istanbul. Anyway this is the last photo of Anna before we hit Britain…

Wrapped Up Furry Well

Thursday, March 25th, 2010

Just under a week before wel left for Britain, this photo was taken on the 7th of February, with Anna on her sleigh, wrapped up in some old fur coats, as we had not bought the fabric covering that we share between Anna’s sleighs in the in-laws’ house and ours. Irina did tell me a story that involved a small child being wrapped up similarly, but I’ve forgotten the details, and also the Russian term that could be applied to Anna.
Hopefully Irina will leave a comment here sometime, and everyone, as well as me, can be educated :)

Photos And Didgeridoos

Thursday, March 25th, 2010

OK, so whilst in Britain this blog, and Anna’s pictures specifically have become somewhat neglected. I’m hoping the occasional photo-laden tweet (and recent addition to the publishing schemes used here – Qik, for records of live streams broadcast) has been enough to keep you going, but judging from the Alexa rank, I’ve lost a few people…
So, back to where we left off – 6th February 2010 (for any new readers stumbling across this post, Anna’s website automatically imports Anna-related posts from this blog, and I wanted to be able to easily tell when the photos were taken, should we be browsing her site in the future.
The first clip is of Anna checking out some photos on Babushka’s camera, followed by a little Didgeridoo basic skills practice.
