Sleeping Beauty or not
On Monday my son and I flew to the UK. It seemed like a great idea but as the time grew closer I got more nervous. Especially as people kept saying gosh you’re brave or rather you than me or wow, you’re flying alone? With a 14 month old?(which makes no sense, clearly I am not alone I am with a 14 month old!)
But I should not have worried as the 14 month old was an absolute star. Despite only sleeping for two hours(on a night flight!) he remained in high spirits and enjoyed his second transatlantic flight much more than his first.
Unfortunatly his lack of sleep scuppered my plans to a) finally watch The Blind Side b) finish Anna and the French Kiss
Still I couldn’t have asked for a better traveling companion. Or a better airline than Virgin. Who were fabulous and very nice. Plus they NAME their aircraft! How adorable. I’m crossing my fingers that they are all fairy tale characters and we go home on Little Red Riding Hood.
Anyway for now we are in the home country, so blogging will be sporadic (or daily if my jet lag continues). Tomorrow I plan to check out Waterstones YA section, so stay tuned!
