This morning I was woken at 3am by a text message from my cab company who I had booked to meet me off the plane tomorrow. The driver was at Heathrow and was wondering where I was. I had given them the wrong day! Aaaaagh.
I went back to bed then convinced myself I must have also booked the flight for yesterday. So I got up again, checked the paperwork and it said Feb 9. In my delerium I thought that was yesterday so started to ring Virgin to beg for a seat today – it was only then that I realised Feb 9 was indeed today. So I went back to bed and then of course couldn’t sleep.
