The weather today in these parts was a mix of sunshine, bouts of rain and the odd shower of hailstones. This, believe it or not, is a vast improvement on the rain-sodden mist-smudged days which have been the norm of late. However I am still very glad to be heading tomorrow, for a short break, to the warmer climes of the south-west of France.
I have almost finished packing; I am panicking because I am flying with Ryanair. Those of you who use them will know their ultra strict policy on the dimensions of hand luggage permitted on board. A fraction of a centimeter out and you will be luggage -napped at the boarding gate and required to hand over a ‘ransom’ of fifty euro or so before you are allowed on the plane. My case is tiny but I am afeared to measure it as I have a sneaking suspicion it might just be a tad in excess of what Ryanair allows. Tomorrow will tell.
To catch my flight I will have to get up a little before 4 am tomorrow. For someone who is ultra fond of eight hours sleep this is not at all easy, so I best head for bed very soon. I will be back ‘on air’ again mid to late next week.
