Jan 22, 2013 - We Made It (maybe the power of positive thinking works)!?
We Made It! Well the idea of stopping my work to reduce stress levels has not worked out so well over the last few days! As you know we were scheduled to fly to Heathrow on Sunday 20 January 2013 so we would be able to catch the flight at 09.40 on Monday morning. As last week progressed tales of doom and gloom were being told on whichever weather program we looked at – whether on line or on the TV. On the Thursday we were concerned enough to call BA to discuss changing our flight down on the Sunday to an earlier – the advisor we spoke to...Jump to full entry
Sep 25, 2012 - Please, please…..let them be Kiwis!
25 Sept 2102 Awoke at reasonable time – C is sick with a bad cold so a day in bed would be useful, but not possible at this stage. Showered and dressed then had a nice breakfast. The owner (Helen) asked if we had any problems or suggestions, as they had only just opened the B&B. Strangely, I “complained” that the shower was too hot!! (an unusual complaint) J said it could be tweaked down a bit, and that would reduce their running costs. We left about 10 after J helped the old lady next door – she wanted him to listen to a telephone...Jump to full entry

Marilyn's Musings The best laid plans certainly did “gang aft agley.” What was going to be a leisurely day of travel to Washington, DC and then on to London got quickly changed Saturday morning when all those dire predictions were flying around about Hurricane Irene. The Virgin Atlantic folks were very happy to change our flight to one out of O’Hare -- not as nice a Clubhouse as we would have enjoyed in DC, but we were dry and un-windswept as we boarded. There was a bonus to the reschedule -- our house is really, really clean due to the...Jump to full entry
Jan 6, 2011 - DAY 1!!
We've been very stressed with all the things we had to get sorted in time and didn't like saying goodbye to our nearest and dearest but we'll keep in touch with you all. Reality is finally beginning to settle in and we're realising that we are going away for a YEAR!!! We're nervous but excited now and trying to focus on the good experiences we're going to have instead of worrying about bad experiences we may or may not have. What a emotional roller-coaster! Thanks to everyone who has helped us on our way. Hopefully we'll update soon. Flight...Jump to full entry
May 9, 2010 - boo airports boo
Buenos Dias! I got to the airport at about 22:30 yesterday- the master plan was to chill out at the airport and wait for check in, perhaps have a little sleep. master plan was crap! Hanging around airports when only the ghosts and stranded spanish people are out is not a giggle. Silly slidey metal chairs and their practically impossible to sleep on design. bastards! However, I defy anything that comes between me and sleep and through some crafty bag manovering was able to get a bit of kip. there were some comfy looking people who had taken...Jump to full entry
Jul 9, 2008 - Cheltenham - Heathrow
Today dawned with the rain falling in Cheltenham and it continued to fall constantly all day. After checking out of the hotel at 10.00am we decided to route to Heathrow via Chipping Sodbury (just because) and Bath. After just under an hour of driving down the M5 in the mist thrown up by other vehicles we rolled into the centre of Chipping Sodbury. In the pelting rain, we decided that a ‘drive by’ viewing would do. This would be a delightful village in summer (or, at least, a real summer), with a lovely open High Street and lots of...Jump to full entry
