First off I picked up some sort of bug in the canaries and flew to London with sinus' so bunged up that my head felt like it was in a vice as we climbed and descended .
Secondly the two and a half days scheduled with Jess were reduced to 4 hours on Saturday morning.
Given I got to my hotel at midnight and HAD to collect her in Surrey early the next morning after a stuffed up night, it wasn't the best of times.
Still, my kid has a way of banishing the negative debris in my head even if we're only together for a short time.
I really miss her.
On a lighter note, some of you may remember my pictures last year from the Australian open. I wasn't there this year but my colleagues were and Kevin Serpanchy has sent a rather good couple to remind me what I've missed.
I'm sitting in the Cathay lounge at Heathrow as I write and will shortly be spending the next 14 hours airborne. A little light entertainment was to be had 45 minutes ago as 4 Chinese guys were caught smoking in the toilets and there was much "I don't understand English" stuff going back and forth.
I'll be sleeping in my own bed all week!
Sunday I'm in Melbourne at a conference though the city will no doubt still be hung over from the tennis parties.
Stay well everyone.Bye Jess
Love to all
