    Well I'm back here in the UK . Just had to do it, been out for a Z fix. Next village to shop for milk (for a real cup of tea) and a gentle 12 mile run to enjoy driving on the correct side of the road. Great to be back:). . . . . . I think?
    Not all good as we landed 55 minutes early at Manchester this morning but then had to wait on the taxi way for 30 minutes for a plane to clear the stand allocated to our flight. We were about 8th off but by the time the luggage started to arrive on the carousel all made up time was lost. B.....er!:(
    I think I need another drive now.;)

    Didn't stop in to see me? I would have tried to make you a proper cup of tea. You could have instructed me in the procedure. But its good that your back and you re driving on the side of the road again. Frankie

    It is if you swim there. Far enough on a plane, thb that's the worst bit 9hrs to get there and about 7.5 hrs to get back.

    9 MILES AWAY FROM THE HOUSE If I was on a break at work on the boardwalk, I'd have seen the plane.
