20060810 Another Day Another Closed Airport

Well the early morning news today wasn’t very good for quite a few people who were suddenly stuck at a London airport. Extra searches, extra security, unable to take any hand luggage on the plane – hmmm I’m glad I wasn’t flying today.

I have a colleague from Germany who is stuck here an extra night – but is now going home tomorrow on the train. Sounds so nice … a 6hr comfortable train ride home. And another workmate is trying to get to Ireland for a wedding tomorrow – she just left the office and her flight isn’t for another 5hrs.

Having only seen tired, stressed people stuck in the terminals at Heathrow – you got to wonder how long security can be kept this tight. Another 24hrs at the most.

This weekend we’re getting out of the city – off to the country to get fresh air, read a book, pick some fruit and chill. Hopefully I’ll get to see the Swans and their ‘babies’ paddling around the ponds outside Ian’s parents place.
