I am indeed a plank, a fool, a twit and a muppet.
Well, not particularly – but due to circumstances both within, and without my control I’ve missed my connection.
So I’m stuck in Houston for a while.
The good news is that I’m in a particularly swanky hotel, swankier than any hotel I’ve ever been in before.
The bad news is that it means I’m going to miss some of my work shifts. I’ve already phoned my brother, and he will contact work for me tomorrow.
I wonder how this absence will be recorded?
The bad news is that my check-in luggage is currently somewhere over the Atlantic. This has my clothes, my toiletries and all my power leads.
I have no idea when I’ll be back in England.
But to be fair to Continental Air, they are fotting the bill for the whole affair. So while I’m upset not to be in England when I planned, at least I’m not homeless and wandering the streets.
Tomorrow, I think I’ll work on my suntan, as the weather here is astounding.
More after I get home.
Wish me luck…
