I’ve started writing this whilst sitting in the airport with just as much anxiety and nerves as I’ve had since the very first cancellation 3 weeks ago.
We’ve walked into the departure terminal to see many flights cancelled and flights to the Middle East, non existent.
We are just preying that our 1st of 3 flights is still scheduled and still goes ahead.
The thought of being in Pakistan is so very distant right now we really dare not even believe it’s possible.
06:50….2nd round of coffee’s
07:00…..Boots had opened
07:00……Greggs have just unloaded a fresh tray of steak bakes
Yes, boredom and anxiety makes for a very eclectic headspace.

07:55 Now nervously standing in a line to try and check in, this is where we see that the luggage allowance of 46kg was in fact wrong
08:00 I simply can not explain what we have just had to go through, absolute gut wrenching.
