Yes, as many already know, I made it safely back without any great problems. Both flights were a few minutes late, but that was all, nothing to drive me to frustration this time around, thank goodness.
And now, tomorrow, is back to work day, oh joy! Throwing in days off, a weeks holiday has worked out to nearly a fortnight away from there. Thankfully most of the jet lag is now sorted, though its certainly taken a while to get to that point. Blessing is, its a short day tomorrow, with an early afternoon start, so I should cope. The bad news, it means the rest of the week isnt so pretty lol! I’ll survive though, I’m sure.
The blessing is, the next flight to the US is already booked, so I can start counting down to that. I suspect that knowing Kate, I’m not going to get too many details about it before I land at Boston Airport somehow! And yes, I’m happy for her to do that, the only detail I will need beforehand being where I’m staying the first night, US immigration get fussy about such things! If she tells me its the robotisation chamber at MIT, well I might not believe her lol! :p
The jet lag has certainly hit me harder this time, I’m not quite sure why. Possibly because my routine was thrown out on the way across, and its never recovered, or maybe its just that I’m getting too old for trying to jump 8 time zones in one long haul? Not a problem I plan to worry about for a while at least, the next few will be nearly all 5, with one 6 thrown in for good measure, which might just be in Kansas lol! I certainly havent got on as much as I hoped on return.
I’m sure Trans Pennine Express have some delights lined up for me travel wise, having got used to the efficiency of the Seattle Light Rail. Still, I’m not sure even they can manage an 11 hour delay, though dont quote me on that!
The song, a tribute to Gerry Rafferty, though yes, its the ‘silver bird’ thing that made me select this song all the same. Given the weather over here, I may be home, but dry is another matter!
