Dundee Stu

Where the heart is

30 September 2004

Crack of dawn job today. Up at 5am to get ready to get to the airport. Got a taxi straight away, and what a nice taxi driver too. He was going off shift, so we agreed a price that was less than I would have to pay had he switched on his meter. Had a nice chat, he was asking me about Scotland - apparently he could tell I wasn't Portuguese on account of my accent! I took the bottles of olive oil and cachaša out of my bag, since I didn't want them to break. I got to the front of the check-in queue when the carrier bag fell over. The cachaša and one bottle of olive oil were gone, and all there was was a strange puddle. The woman at check-in told me not to worry about the mess, and she gave me the best seats on the plane - the ones that go down flat! Boy was I comfy! Got home safe and sound at about 5pm. It's nice to be back.

Welcome home. It looks like a warm and loving place.
Good luck to Linda on her degree - no easy business doing that as
an adult with real responsibilities. You'll have to remember to
be supportive, Stu! ;)
