we flew up from orlando to la guardia this morning. a very early start but all went very smoothly. i am staying in the hilton on 42nd street tonight before doing a daytime flight back across the atlantic for the first time tomorrow. in theory it is meant to cancel out a lot of the jet lag which would be greta as i am straight into work on monday morning.

the others have headed off to get their plane this evening to land at heathrow early tomorrow morning.

i have a feeling it will take a few days to adjust back to the normal speed of life. we have had the most relaxing christmas break ever over here. and we are all suitably tanned! the picture is of the view from my hotel room. rather good for a freebie (i am using up some of my "hotel miles" to pay for tonight).
