A Christmas Cruise !

Hello again ,

An interesting week.

Lady Ellipsis had her Christmas works do on Monday – it was stunning – a boat on the River Thames on a beautiful clear sunny day; the boat, what you could call a floating conservatory toured down the river, along with superb food , a delicious live band & a singer! Bliss & the best ever Chrimbo party that Ellipsis has yet attended!

Ciao for now ,

A holiday is a great time for being you and finding yourself. It can give you a great perspective in life and can re energise & help focus on what’s important taking away from the petty everyday-ness of work and responsibility.

The sea is also therapeutic making you realise that no matter how in control you think you are, you’re not really, there are much more powerful forces of nature out there.

Fly me to the moon

Ola !

So Lady Ellipsis in all her 5.7" , 8.5 stone glory donned glamorously in Pri-maani rocked up at Gatwick North long-stay in her Jaguar to board her first ever Orange Eye to sunny Spain. Only panic being a 40-minute delay joining the M25 from the M26, luckily being the ever-organised Virgo (with Aries rising she’ll have you know) gave herself a 2-hour drive time rather than the usual 45 minutes.

Departing from Gatwick North terminal on the morning of the 1st of December proved to be quite a surprisingly pleasant experience! Check-in being relatively straightforward apart from the confiscation of a bottle of well-known energy sports drink at security.

All staff at the terminal were efficient helpful and friendly, down to the awfully nice chap at *Bucks who supplied me with a free skinny latte owing to them not having my choice of a tall wet latte made from whole (fat) milk -it was actually rather nice considering not my usual choice.

Boarding the 10.50am flight, fellow passengers were terribly interesting and friendly, many of whom appeared to be well-to-do sophisticated travellers going out for short retirement breaks, golfing holidays etc; the two nice people, husband/wife seated next to me were retired TV directors from Fulham and very interesting they were too !
