So today, I checked my flight time and discovered I am flying 3 hours earlier than usual (must have been much cheaper when I made the booking), meaning that I’m going to have to take more books and folders back with me to Glasgow than originally planned in order to finish my chapter (which was supposed to be finished on Friday just gone, whoops – that’s the blonde bit from which all the other disasters emanate). I tried to change my booking so that I could have hold baggage rather than hand luggage only, but as I have several flights on the same booking it wanted to make me have hold baggage for all of them rather than just this week’s. I tried to phone the airline to sort it out, but only managed to speak to electronic people who clearly didn’t have my particular problem programmed, and I ended up giving up on them as I simply couldn’t get through to a real live person.
So I’ve changed plan, which means sticking with hand luggage only. Unfortunately this means that I can’t take my laptop with me, as I’ve all the folders and books and only limited space, so there’ll be no internet at home, I’ll have to spend longer at work (this is not a bad thing, actually), but crucially it will mean no blogging or surfing for a few days. I’m going to go (nearly) cold turkey! Photo blogs will still happen (I’ve got them set up in advance), but I’ll see you all here in a few days. Don’t have too much fun without me!
