    I'm a wiggler too.

    I sit for 9 hours saying "god I'm bored" every 2 minutes. And in the minutes inbetween I drive Adrian mad telling him how long we've got left to go according to the skymap. :rofl:

    The last trip was good... I had seen Shrek 2 (?) so spent the whole 8hrs saying, "Are we there yet?" in Donkey's voice.
    DH loved it...:4:

    But then I'll be saying "god I'm bored" every 60 seconds. I just find flying so boring. I takes books and puzzles and stuff but I can't get into them with people moving all around me. I amuse myself by counting how many times the kid in row 2 goes to the toilet during the flight, and things like that.

    I hate to be sitting still. They should put a jogging machine at the back of the plane for people like me.

    Don't worry. You'll be so busy keeping Steven entertained that the time will pass quickly! :)

    Can you imagine that! Awesome idea!

    Usually my children prevent me from enjoying any of the books, magazines or movies on offer. I swear when we first took Owen he walked across the Atlantic. Up and down the aisle for nearly 8 hrs!

    I'm too excited when I first get on to concentrate on anything for long... then I rummage through the flight mags and see if I want to buy anything... then look at the prices and decide nope... unless it's that heated eyelash curler that I must have (like last time) and it never gets used now :( Then I may watch a film, read a book in all sorts of positions... feet on the people in front arm rests... or I kneel facing the back of my seat to read... it's comfy and a change on such a loooooooong flight. Then I get up and go to the loo and struggle in those teeny weeny spaces cos I go armed with toilet cleaner and disposable cloths so I have to manouvre my way around cleaning the toilet and seat before I can even think of going :( then I have to clean the sink and taps before washing my hands cos I don't want zillions of germs... then I have to clean the door handle oh and the toilet handle also gets a wipe if it's impossible to flush it using my foot... if the floor is icky I give that a clean too. Phew then I open the doors and see loads of angry faces ready to lynch me... but hey ho the toilet is clean for the next person! :)
