Drive-by postlet

I'm still alive and still on holiday. In fact, I am currently typing this from Universal Studios in Florida where I have both a touch of sun burn and a damp bottom. (The damp bottom is from a water flume ride rather than a medical condition. I just wanted to be clear on that point).

Holiday has been a lot of fun so far but I've been so far removed from things that I had no idea until yesterday that it has been snowing back in Blighty (and I only knew then because uC mentioned it in a text). Unsurprisingly, there'd been nothing about this on CNN or CNBC and it wasn't until I got internet access today that I found out it was the worst snow in 20 years and that because of it Gatwick is currently closed until 6am tomorrow. I'm due to fly back on Friday and at the moment, the Met Office is not augering well, which will be interesting as I've never been in this position before.

I'm guessing that there'll be a massive backlog of flights over the next 48 hours, which might push me off (although I'm hoping that as I paid for a business class ticket I'm not going to get bumped off but might get bumped up). In the worst case scenario I guess I'll just have to stay out here in sunny Florida (damp bottom and sunburn notwithstanding) until the thaw sets in.

Damn. Damn. Damn.

(Tee hee)

I'll do a more detailed (and infinitely more boring post) when I get back setting out my many and varied adventures, which include being mistaken for the nanny of a Korean family, being asked if I'd been serving in Afghanistan and having an entire rollercoaster to myself last thing at night (awesome, by the way).

Until then, ciao ciao, my dears and stay warm.

Watch out for my mamma and papa alos sunning themselves in Florida. I am so jealous of the sunshine. Safe journey hom and I doubt they bump people from business class.

Hope it's proving awesome - but you must be heartbroken at the prospect of missing work! ;)

Hello! I went to Universal Studios in Singapore on Monday, and it rained ridiculously hard. Half the park is covered with shade sails, so we were dry but deafened. Then we bought rain ponchos to go wander around the park in the rain.

Hope your holiday is going well.
