The best one I had, and this is going back years ago when I was in my late 20's and flying from Sydney to LAX alone. Big plane and long flight, I found myself in the middle of a quite scary biker group of Americans that had flown to Oz to have a hell bent tour of the country and I happened to find myself as the single female in their midst whilst they were getting completely pissed and doing drugs on the way back to their homeland.

I just gave in (to the drink, not the pills offered) and they were really nice guys, I actually felt I had no choice to not join them, but turning up in LA at 7.30am was all good until the hangover hits in halfway through the morning. I was arsed and must have been visibly so, but they still let me into the country, BEST inflight entertainment ever.

Ha! I remember a flight from Cape Town to joberg with my best friend. The flight was only half full and the flight attendant took a shine to us girls and basically threw wine at us for the duration. Which was fine, except her very strict sober father was picking us up at the airport and pretending not to be completely wrecked was hilarious.

We thought we got away with it but he must have known

It's SO obvious! When I was 15 and got accepted to play for a good women's hockey team alongside another underage player. We got invited to a social event and they got us pissed and my friend's super protective daddy picked us up at 10pm in his new car. Luckily it was a Halloween do so I had a tall witches hat which I threw up in on the way home, otherwise his car seat upholstery would have been toast.

My parents founded an English school in Leshoto, and my brother was born there so he has dual nationality. When he was naughty back here, my mother always threatened him with conscription.. It was all bollocks but not something nasty from her,  just as a very young mother a misplaced judgement of humour? But it worked and he was scared that suddenly he could be taken away from our life when we moved back to England.

Unfortunately I was born in Scotland, so that fucked it all up in terms of subtle parenting blackmail.

I don't know I'd rather be sent to South Africa than Scotland

16 miles run with the club, it felt really good and av about 7.40 mm. Cole enjoyed it too, I'll have to start paying membership fees for him soon!

Back from dropping to dog off for his holiday. Had a lovely leisurely walk reound Truro this morning which resulted in a new dress, some running gear and the most chocolatety hot chocolate for thing 2 from the Thorntons cafe.

Oh and just glanced at FB to find that we've won the Peninsula trophy back for Devon. Great running ladies!

The farmer's wife has just come over and given my girls a €20 note each for an 'ice cream'.

Such a lovely gesture, and a lot of ice cream!

I'd forgotten how bad I am pre-flight. It's the first time thing 2 has flown and the first time thing 1 will remember flying, and I've now got to sit there pretending it doesn't scare the crap out of me!

Am back, had a blast. Looking at my work emails with one eye closed and squinting through the other. That way I can pretend I didn't see stuff. In-laws on their way up for the day and bringing back my dawg. So I decided not to long run with the club this morning (too late back last night, no Cole, visitors etc) so I will trot out with my boy tomorrow.

Had to buy a stupid Disney hat because it was FREEZING over there. Their sale of hats and scarves went up 10 fold me thinks. There was a secret silly hat nod of approval going round. Needs must!

Meh! Grumpy fighting Lurgy, and no that's not some perverse re-enactment of Snow White.
