    I’m dreaming of a White Christmas!

    Bilby and I are all checked in at the airport and are firmly ensconced in the SilverKris Business class lounge enjoying a beverage or three and some delectable nibbles!

    Bilby is enjoying one of his favourite bought beers, and I am enjoying a lovely glass of bubbles!



    As Bilby just stated while I am typing this : ‘It’s definitely a civilised way to travel!’ I agree!

    We shall share pictures and stories as we go!

    Sweet! When you have to fly that far - the comforts mean a lot.

    It’s currently 2pm at home, and 4 am at our destination. I have slept as the Singapore Air business class bed is spacious and comfortable. Sleep was fitful, but I did get some! So did Bilby, who rarely sleeps on planes.

    We are currently enjoying complementary wifi to check on things!

    You can say that again

    I slept very well (though it took a while to drop off, as my brain thought it was 10am).

    Being able to lie flat makes all the difference.

    Gayna, you just make friends everywhere you go, don't you?
    The Authoritarians

    GOP and Trump supporters will not be able to say they didn't know. Vote in numbers too big to manipulate.

    I tell you, you will enjoy that one day of snow, and then never want to see it again. Millions of us travel south to get away from the stuff. Its hard for me to imagine anyone wanting to actually go TOWARDS or FOR it. lol

    That said, if I lived away from it for too long, I would miss skating, skiing, toboganing and making snowmen. It all does have its charm.

    I never did get to see snow! According to my SIL, it snowed in Central London 5 days after we left.
