We have sent a claim form, copies of tickets, and a copy of a letter requesting a refund from the Lapland to the credit card company and are off on our replacement day out tomorrow!

I'm really looking forward to it - i love day trips there. We used to be in London all the time when I was younger as most of our extended family lived there - we'd be up there frequently with Mum and Dad.

Now it's good for days out and it's only an hour and a half away by train. I plan to take the camera if i remember it so i hope to have some pics for you!

Fingers crossed it stays dry - cold i can deal with as we'll wrap up but rain....na, don't want it thanks!
