Last week I was ill. So ill I didn’t get dressed for 2 days and didn’t leave my house for 5 days. This is so unlike me. In fact, I actually can’t remember when I was last ill enough to even stay in my pj’s for an entire day. It must have been many, many years.

I love flying, I always have done. I’ve written here before about my love of flying. The concept of being able to get into a metal can, fly through the air and end up somewhere thousands of miles away within the space of a few hours is truly amazing.
