The day is upon us, the cases are packed and we are all ready to go! 👏
There were no arguments this year about the weight of the cases, they came in well under our allowance. That’s got to be a first! Considering that we will be experiencing hot temperatures first of all in Las Vegas and Moab and then winter ones when we reach the Tetons in Wyoming, it’s a miracle. Note: When we re-weighed them just to make sure they had increased in weight! 😱How on earth is that possible!?
We are actually allowed to check-in six cases but we won’t be doing that. We have one large case each plus our carry-ons. Can you imagine Simon’s face if I presented him with six cases! 😂😱🧳
First stop is the Virgin Upper Class lounge to partake of food and beverages and then board the plane for more food and beverages.
The drive to Heathrow was a little slower than anticipated due to a coach having broken down in the second lane on the M25. Still, it didn’t delay us too much.
When I went to check-in on-line last night a message appeared saying it was not possible for me to do that, but not to worry as it could mean I’d been chosen for extra checks!! What! Did that mean I may not be able to fly?😱
When we arrived at the Upper Class check-in, a lovely lady called Dee welcomed us and couldn’t understand what the problem was as I had already completed all the necessary paperwork. 🤷♀️
She didn’t even comment on my black eye! For those who wouldn’t know, I had a fight with the corner of an oven door! 😔It’s turning a nice shade of yellow now. Luckily, with my glasses on you can’t really see it. 🕶️
We’ve eaten lunch in the lounge accompanied with the odd glass or two or champers 🥂🍾and now await our boarding call which should be about 3.40 ready to take off at 4.30. 🤞✈️
Next stop Las Vegas!
