Where's Annie McGuire?
The great day is finally here! Yes British airspace has reopened - but I'm not going up there! The reality is that the queue to get back on a flight from France means I'd be here for a few days yet - estimated to be Saturday - so the plan remains to get on the train this morning.
In reality it will in fact be three trains: Nice to Lille, Lille to London, and London to Glasgow. The word from my friend Kevin Mitchell from The Guardian who got on a train yesterday is that it was a 'bit of a bun fight' and that his whole world nearly fell apart when his first train was nearly 40 minutes late - meaning a mad dash for the Eurostar back to London. Thankfully he made it.
And after 24 hours on a train - by Thursday morning I should be home too. My initial plans include a cup of tea in my favourite mug and not much else!
