Saturday 18th March
Finally up in the air and I think I will allow myself to relax, just a little. I tried to sleep (my husband’s shoulder makes for a very nice pillow) however I did not manage more than ten minutes.
I fear I have become a little jaded over the past few years and I have taken all this beauty and splendour for granted. This morning I was having a hard time switching off from thoughts of work and family responsibilities. I keep thinking of all the things that I need to do in the office but I need to be practical. There are only so many hours in the day and I had better enjoy the here and now. Live in the present. I am not sure I can achieve much by worrying about was has past and what might happen.
As we get closer to our destination my mood lightens and we begin our descent.
