Winter - I love having gaps to fill.
Hurrah! I have managed to get back in. Still at Dubai. Hoping to be back on a plane in around 12 hours time.
Pam - Glad to hear that your son did well for himself. (less stories of scarey plane journeys please!)
I usually feel guilty about spening time on the internet but now there is literally nothing more useful which I could be doing. My sister sent me an e-mail just now to tell me off for being silly.
I don't own a mobile phone, only have my work phone which I haven't brought with me because I am not supposed to use it for personal calls. Am seriously starting to reconsider the whole mobile phone issue.
I don't watch airline programmes. Do they tell you how to avoid falling asleep at crucial times? Weather outside is much as you would expect in a desert
More sheiks than you could sheik a stick at
I am booked onto the next flight (tomorrow morning) and have been trying out all the facilities so have had a shower, lunch, numerous cups of tea and am now on the internet.
Not too bad because I am spending the day in the business lounge. Just a bit boring. It has crossed my mind to wonder how long I could live in the business lounge before they noticed I had not flown anywhere?
I am trying to be in Melbourne. I believe that I must have nodded off when they called my flight so entirely my fault!!!
I get tomatoes popping up everywhere most years. I keep meaning to be careful what I put in my compost bin but that never happens! When I spread my compost I inadvertently sow the tomato seeds at the same time. Usually I just weed them out but one year I left one and it did really well. I was not entirely sure what it was!!
I planted some hyacinths next to my front door which I received as a growing Xmas present and they flowered the following spring. They are in a spot which gets baked in the sun and they are quite deep because I mulch the garden every year. They always flower earlier than my other hyacinths.
