Sunshine by ProBodie

(no subject)

Journal catch-up time. I've been here just over 24 hours :-)

QF5 to Singapore and QF9 to London were good flights. There was almost no waiting for the connecting flight in Singapore - off one aircraft and onto the next. Total time in the air, 21:20. I had a middle section seat at first, then from Singapore I had an aisle seat and the person sitting next to me was upgraded, leaving her seat free and her blanket for me to use. That was handy because I was sitting right across from a service area and it was drafty! The 'plane had movies and TV "on demand" - I don't know how long this has been around, but it's wonderful! No more missing the start of movies, or crucial bits of the plot because of PA announcements or toilet/exercise breaks, you just start again where you left off.

And I read about half of "Naming of the Dead", which I'm pretty impressed with so far.

byslantedlight proved she's a true star by getting up at a god-awful hour to pick me up from Heathrow. I arrived safely at Oak Tree Cottage and it's lovely, as are its inhabitants. A nap in the afternoon and a trip to Tescos (where we bought many naughty things including some Gooseberry Fool, yum), interneting & nattering (in preparation for Nattercon, you see) and finally to bed with fic!

Today... I woke way too early, but didn't let myself get out of bed until 6 a.m. ...not sure what we're going to do yet(feels carefree and holiday-ish).
