A first

Tut tut tut. Missed my flight tonight. Got to Terminal 5 that bit too late to check in. Three hours 25 minutes to get to LHR 5 rather than the more normal 1 hour 55. Oh deary me. That’s the first time I’ve EVER missed a flight. As the chaps in Romania were sending a driver to collect me (it’s a 6 hour road journey from Bucharest to Agigea) I was anxious to get the collection cancelled sooner rather than later. Just about managed to get him turned back an hour into his journey. Bet he wasn’t very chuffed.
Anyway, am now in the Terminal 5 Sofitel and it’s only a three minute walk ( I know because I’ve done a test run already) to the check in desks. I also found a Marks and Spencers in the terminal so have loaded up with sushi, fruit and wine for a room picnic which thankfully dispenses with the need to use the hotel dining room. Eating alone in public seems such a lonely and pathetic spectacle, best avoided methinks.
Next flight out is 1100 tomorrow. Much more civilised.
Nighty night.

About allatsea

Sixty year old master-mariner. Absolutely gorgeous. Well wedged.....when compared to a Nairobi street urchin. Sorted, in that I haven't been in court recently. Hopelessly optimistic, terminally disappointed. Good with cats and other fluffy things. No musical talent. Generous to a fault provided it's someone else's round. Political centreist with far right and left viewpoints. A green activist from the hydrocarbon position with nuclear leanings. Averse to avarice but always happy to receive lottery wins, gifts, windfalls, legacies, prizes and wet sloppy kisses.
