Don't panic Mr Mannering!

What a start to the day - snow in Birmingham, flights cancelled and diverted first thing this morning!

Fortunately all is well now, someone has been out and swept the runway and the sun has even made an appearance. I love snow but i'll swap it for the 30+ degrees of Cape Town on this occasion, just don't let it delay me please.

Got a bit of a grilling at check in about the three and a half tonnes (metric) of baggage that i'm accompanying but it was all ok in the end - good job they didn't see my hand luggage!

Well that's it for me, just waiting to board now. The 23 hour countdown has begun.
