I can manage finicky in short bursts!

The more I think about it, the more I am inclined to get the roll developed only, and then see what the transparencies look like before doing anything else.
I've rarely shot slide film, and the lighting was tricky a lot of the time on this occasion, so there's every chance only a very few will be good enough for a gift.

If I can anyway track down a UK lab who'll do this, I'll report back
