Many thanks for all the wishes.

The flight was fine,on time and comfortable. then we had to wait nearly half an hour to get off the plane, for another plane to clear the slot, and I got on the wrong UK passport line - she was chatting with everyone that went through, took about four times as long as the other line and virtually everyone on the foreign passports queue had got through before I did! In all, from touchdown, it took almost an hour and a half to get out to the area where my taxi driver was waiting.

I'm now in the UK for three weeks and staying in Shepperton until Saturday. I'm off to visit Essex Girl tonight and hope to be going to her local folk club. Got to pick my car up in Southampton tomorrow and off to Newark on Sunday.
