Tier Point Run to Grand Cayman in Dec 2013: Day 5 – London Heathrow (LHR) to Manchester (MAN)
Very much looking forward to getting home now and seeing the missus. Due back at 16:30 and she’s got a special tea lined up for me.
Got a couple of pressies whilst I have been away, so hopefully just need to wrap those up and Christmas is then sorted.

Flight was looked like it was going to be on time, but at the last minute apparently a bit of wet weather between MAN and LHR was causing some delays since planes needed to divert around it. Anyway we ended up 20 mins late.
Sat next to a lad from Seattle called Josh who at 20 was already flying small commercial planes – he got a visit into the cockpit and had a chat with the pilots. He was off to his parents for Christmas – they live in Preston. Seemed a very nice guy and I am sure he will do something significant with his life soon – I just get that feeling.
Interestingly other than an ad woman I had a chat with on the DUB-LHR flight, and my chat with Josh, I had no other significant interactions with other passengers during my whole trip! We are a funny lot really – I just think people don’t want to take the risk of ending up being landed with some old fart that doesn’t stop talking. I wonder if that’s a description of me!
