Up, up & away!

Well I am headed to the airport for the long journey back to Blighty for Xmas.

I got all of my 'to do' list done just about and my suitcase scraped in under the 50lb limit by a measly .02 lbs. The last time I flew the limit was 70lbs, now it's 50lbs and no doubt in a few more years it will be a ridiculous 40lbs! How they expect you to get clothes, gifts, toiletries, the weight of the case and various essentials in for under 50lbs blows my mind!

I have been trying not to breathe in at work for days as a nasty stomach bug circulated around me and I think I remembered everything.

So I need good vibes and a few prayers please for a safe and hopefully sleepy journey at around 7:40pm CET today, as I wave 'adieu' to the States for a fortnight.

Next post from Blighty!

Have a great and safe trip. I hope we'll be able to meet for a coffee as you rush about seeing all your friends and family and doing all the fun stuff, however I do know how these visits home fly by and there's never enough time for it all.

If I don't see you, have a wonderful time and Merry Christmas to you and the family.

How exciting, Sarah!!! I wish I could travel to England. My first and last visit was in 1969, too long ago.

Have a safe journey Sarah. If you are anywhere near Luton, I'd like to meet you.
It's going to be very Christmassy and white when you get here....!
Hope you have a wonderful Christmas in dear old England.
Blessings, Star
