Sunday 14th February 2010

At 30 minutes past midnight we get to the Eurotunnel terminal in Calais. Our booking is actually for 9.00am on Monday morning but no matter. The computer cheerfully offers to let us go at 1.25am for no extra charge and at about 1.30am GMT we duly arrive in the UK. After the usual hunt for money, petrol and milk we arrive in London and finally get to bed at about 3.30am



Today is Saint Valentine's day so we decide to go to Whiteleys where we have a bite to eat at ASK which has an interesting staircase and then go to see Precious. Very good but very depressing. The reviews suggest that it is a hopeful film, (she goes on to make something of her life), but to me it is pretty bleak. Things do not look good when your father is also your grandfather ...

Monday 15th February 2010

We set off for Saint Katherine Dock but the weather is absolutely vile - there is nothing colder than England on a wet windy day in winter.

Tuesday 16th February 2010

I drop my girlfriend at Stansted Airport and drive to Manchester via Norwich.

Wednesday 17th February 2010

I spend the day driving round North Wales and have lunch at the Craft Centre in Ruthin which is excellent as usual.

Thursday 18th February 2010

I spend the day in the North East of England and end up at Betty's in Harrogate

Friday 19th February 2010

I spend the day working.

Saturday 20th February 2010

I catch the British Airways Shuttle to Heathrow. The leg room at the emergency exit is enormous - I cannot reach the chair in front of me.

From Heathrow I catch the 3.30pm plane to Gibraltar. When I arrive the weather is not much better than in the UK.
