This morning flew to Edinburgh from Luton for a five day stay, allows me an extra hour in bed. Luton was in absolute chaos; the checking hall was totally full. Start of the holiday season I thought, but apparently Easyjet had a problem with their booking system. They delayed all their flights by over an hour to ensure passengers were able to make it to through to departures. Even so someone did not make it.
Flying up I was able to see the coast line from North of the Wash, round Norfolk, Suffolk, and down the Essex coastline. This was while flying over Northampton. On arrival at Edinburgh, found my laptop was not in the overhead lockers, so I rushed out of the plane, barging past everyone, and managed to find the culprit who had taken my laptop. He had accidentally picked the wrong case, though the ones left in the locker seemed very different to mine, and he had still not noticed when he put papers into to bag. In future I sh! all take more notice of what people are taking out of the locker as they leave.
Ate in the hotel today, sitting at the bar.
Another sunny day, but not very hot.
Had supper at Time-4-Thai. I have eaten there before for lunch with the other bank people. The waiters and waitresses are very attentive. Had a mixed platter of starters followed by a green curry.
Had a call from Mary and Ed, met up with them at the Bank Hotel. They were sitting outside drinking wine, with 3 others from the bank. Couple of them were staying in the Raddison hotel. Have not bumped into them.
Woke to a very cool day. Arthur’s seat totally covered in cloud, and the cool easterly wind blew al day. The sun broke through later in the day, but it remained cool all day.
Project lunch was with my colleagues at Zest, Indian restaurant next to the office.
Stayed in today at the hotel, eating a small supper of very rare Tuna, and a! plate o f chips
