Andrew and I drove down to the Heathrow Holiday Inn last night, it was a great journey with very little traffic and we got there with lots of time for a picnic (not just a picnic, an M&S picnic) and some TV in our room before bed.
Heathrow terminal 5 is lovely: light, bright, airy and spacious. The shops are nice to look at, but your typical expensive airport nonsense (Harrods, Paul Smith, Tiffany and so on). I did manage to get some posh new sunglasses though.
We’re currently on our flight to San Francisco with just over 7 hours to go, so it’s time to settle down, digest my meal and watch a film or two.
