    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.

    It’s now 6:19 am on Monday in London. We have been here for about 22 hours and we have slept half of that!

    The transition has been made easier by being able to sleep!

    The following are from the plane:


    A Singapore Sling!



    A big bed!



    A civilised way to fly!

    It takes a day or two to acclimatize to being the wrong way up.
