This is my life:

So, off to Stansted early Thursday morning to catch a flight to Prestwick. Did my usual thing of stopping at the 24 hours garage before setting off and checked the oil, water, tyre pressures etc. (this does become relevant), then drove to Stansted, parked up in the long stay and jumped on the flight.

Arriving at Prestwick, I was surprised nobody met me off the flight as usually happens (I don’t have a security pass, so cannot go airside). I wandered up to the information desk (doubles as security) and asked if they had a number for the Ryanair hangar, explaining I was working there for the day.

“You can;t go airside without a pass.” said the (un)helpful woman behind the desk. I explained that I knew that, I just needed to get in touch with the hangar so someone could pick me up (it’s a few hundreds yards to the hangar airside, but about 3 miles to walk landside). I realised within minutes she wasn’t gonna help me, so I wandered off to where I took my security induction 6 months previously…

70 hours…

And we’ll be taking off for Morocco πŸ™‚

I really should start thinking about packing I guess…so much to do: get a haircut, have a shave (although I look kinda Muslim with my beard I’ve been told). Got to give Brian (lodger #1) instructions on feeding Gif – the cat will try to get extra food, greedy fat bastard!

And tomorrow is Ewa’s (lodger #2) birthday – Dennis will be back so we’ll go out and celebrate that, then Saturday to recover a little and off Sunday morning. Poor Harriett – she said she’d drive us to the airport, but didn’t realise the flight is 6am – that’s messed up her Saturday night out, she’ll have to go out Friday instead πŸ˜€ I’ll have to see if she wants to come out with Dennis, Ewa, me and whoever else is coming tomorrow…

I’m definitely in FULL HOLIDAY MODE now, and that’s not good – I have to concentrate on my work for the next day and a half to make sure nothing goes wrong while I’m away. I have instruction books/parts lists to finish, few quotes to chase up – should make the day go fast though πŸ™‚

Oh, did I mention I’m off to Morocco on Sunday? πŸ™‚

EDIT: I booked my holiday week off back in November so everyone here knows I’ll not be here – wasn’t a problem 😐

Until…Air Seychelles called the other day – they need their jacks tested for the end of next week. Now, we’re absolutely snowed under in the workshop and can’t afford anyone to be gone for a few days, so this is the one time I would have got to go to the Seychelles…but I’ll be in Morocco πŸ™

I’m toying with the idea of asking if they do a flight from Morocco to Seychelles so I could take a day off to test the jacks…

But NO! I’ll be on holiday…

And the week I get back, I’ll be down testing in Bristol.

Recession? what fecking recession – we’ve never been so busy…
