The plane trip

We got on the plane with no major issues. We even managed to procure our selves seats in front of one of the emergency exits. This turned out to be a life saver, because even though there was no window (the main reason we asked for another seat) there was heaps of leg room. I don't think I would have arrived sane if it wasn't for that leg room.
I watched 'Blades of Glory', 'Becoming Jane', the ' Pride and Pregdidious' movie (yuk) 'Groundhog Day' and some episodes of various bits of crap TV and tried to sleep. This last bit didn't really work too well.
The stop over, at 5am, in Hong Kong was boring as nothing was open, but no as boring as the next 13hrs flying to London. AWFUL. I couldn't wait to get off the sodding plane. England was rather cloudy so there were no really cool pics out the window . We rushed to change from Terminal 4 to Terminal 1. By this stage I was starting to feel the ground moving beneath me when I was standing on concrete. We were both a bit shirty at each other. The Edinburgh plane ended up being about an hour late in landing. We met up with Jack Jack with no issues and the loaded ourselves on to a 35 bus back to Jacki's
Jacki took us to one of the many many pubs near by for dinner (we had to walk past 4 pubs to get there) so we could eat Haggis. It wasn't too bad. We had a few nice beers and ciders, then back to home and bed.
We slept like rocks, but both woke up at 3am with huge bladders! He he he he
