Flight from CAI – LGW
Couldn’t sleep at all last night so I finally gave up and started reading, “Life in the Palace,” by Carol Birch, which I managed to finish and no, it had absolutely nothing to do with Buckingham Palace!
I was on the last few pages (so sad) when call came at three am (ugh!) Roughly eight hours later we landed back at Gatwick. Crew transport took us back to Heathrow, then a two-hour drive home to a full house.
I had no idea mum’s younger sister was coming down from Scotland with her two of her four girls. We spent the afternoon in the garden and the girls each took turns posing for pictures in my uniform, which was very amusing.
Tonight, we went ice skating and I’m more than ready for bed!
