In the past 18 days I’ve been on 6 planes (3 airlines, 4 airports), and never spent more than 2-4 nights in a row in one place. I commute between two countries more of less regularly, but this has been a bit hectic, even by my standards…

It all started the Thursday before Easter as I left Homebase 1 to go to Homebase 2, via Gatwick as usual, spent the Easter weekend there with my husband, Professor M. On Easter Sunday we left together for Barcelona.

We don’t actually fly together very often; usually it is one of us taking the plane to go meet the other one somewhere. So, while we are both seasoned frequent flyers on our own, flying together takes some negotiating. For starters, we have rather different approaches when it comes to getting to the airport… Professor M prefers a last minute mad race to the gate, whereas I like to take my time and grab a magazine or two on the way.
But I’m digressing here… So, after a dew days in Barcelona we got back to Britain via Gatwick on Wednesday (that would be flight number 3, in case you lost count).
A few days in Homebase 2, then on Sunday (the 27th) back to Homebase 1 (again via Gatwick) to catch up on some work on Monday and Tuesday.

And after 44 hours in Homebase 1 it was back to Homebase 2 on Tuesday evening (this time via Heathrow). On Wednesday I had a relaxing day in Homebase 2, and on Thursday we were off to London for a long weekend. And earlier tonight I flew back to Homebase 1.
I’m guessing the two questions you are dying to ask now are: 1) are we rich? (no) and 2) are we crazy? (most likely).
Anyway, this is the most coherent post I could manage at this point, having just landed, so to speak, back to Homebase 1. And now, given that I have to be at work at noon, and it’s almost midnight, I think I should just wish you all good night.
Happy Landings, and Good Night
PS: I promise to stay put in Homebase 1 for a while now, or till the end of the month anyway…
