Hi ho silver lining

16Apr10

Well I didn’t see it coming… It’s hard not to feel that the Norse gods are having a laugh. The ash cloud has brought welcome relief from incessant election news. We are promised glorious sunsets very shortly and the sky is wonderfully clear of aircraft vapour trails so the views will be spectacular.

The only people who are inconvenienced are air travellers.

I was due to be flying out of Heathrow this evening. For several weeks I had been planning a business trip and making arrangements for a busy few days in a sunny place. Perhaps Thor and Odin have other plans for me?

This means I will be at home to celebrate my mother’s birthday and enjoy the pleasure of all four children at home together for a short time. A business trip can be rescheduled, but time with the family is precious and unique. Every ash cloud has a silver lining.
