Home Proper Home

A completely smooth journey from Colombo 5 to SW9. Even our 35 minute transfer at Doha, Qatar was a doddle, as our flight was 15 minutes early so we didn't even need any special treatment.

Watched a plethora of films on the way back, finished An Education (brilliant, will be showing it to my teenage daughter, if I ever have one), was more impressed than I expected by Up In The Air. Disappointed that Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs was not available, despite the brochure listing. Fantastic Mr Fox was bizarre, and not bad, considering I was prepared not to like it at all. Full of post holiday bliss watching Lost In Translation, and then the light fluff of The Little Mermaid.

Lots of films about women having challenges with their identity, especially relative to the men in their lives. Feel empowered by my job and by Charlie-Fish, a good strong front foot to get back to the UK on.

Did the usual tedious back-from-holiday tasks, washing is on, post is assessed. Charlie is now sorting out the final bits and pieces for King of Games tomorrow, which I believe has a good turnout. Will be lovely to see everybody having been away for a week.

Trying to pretend it is approaching 8pm, rather than approaching 2am (which is where our minds and stomachs are, never mind what the clock says). Will have a light supper and then to bed, ready for a day of shenannigans tomorrow.
