Back in Blighty, Nighty Nighty!I'm baaaack! According to my watch, it's Thursday. According to the clock on my laptop it's Friday. I have absolutely no idea which is correct. I've obviously put one forward and one back. I am so tired I can't work it out, I'm going to have to look it up on ceefax. I'll do a proper blog later when I've actually slept for more than 4 hours. One of the downsides of this trip has been the sheer lack of sleep. After missing the first flight out, I've taken no chances, arriving at the airport in time for first boarding. Since all my flights have been early morning, on several occassions I have been wined and dined by my interviewer until midnight before catching a taxi at 4am the next morning. The novelty of take off and landing (normally my favourite part of flying) has long since gone and on several occassions I fell asleep before take-off and had to be woken by a steward after landing.
Anyway, until my next post here are a few statistics from the last 10(?) days.
