    Hi all. 20 hours since we boarded the magical express but now we are home, safe and sound. And reasonably jet lagged. Crying and hysterical child didn't help when trying to sleep. Parent didn't seem all that bothered, though the rest of PE were a tad annoyed.

    Our semi attentive trolley dolly was a Ricky Gervais lookalike, even down to the odd laugh and bad hair. He was nowhere near as funny though.

    Also the chaos when some elderly chap fainted, knocked his head on someone's food tray, and spilt hot coffee all over her. I think she was in more or a state of shock than he was.
    He was fine in the end but paramedics raced on board to check him over when we landed. We were hoping for a diversion to the nearest airport which would have been Cardiff , or so we would have liked to think. But no. London it was.

    Trains all on time, despite us trying to wrestle three suitcases, two carry on bags, a camera bag and a banana between us.

    Anyway, we have now showered so now resemble something reasonably human, have unpacked suitcases (house now covered in Disney stuff we have no idea where to put) and first load of washing just finished.

    Few hours of mooching about, bite to eat and then bed to reset body clocks.

    Oh I LOVE that first shower after the long trip home, it helps you to feel human again.

    Welcome Back and hope that man was alright? Still those hot drinks on planes are like napalm, hope she was ok too :(

    Glad you're both home safe and sound but really disappointed that we're not going to get any more reports. It would be great to have, instead of trip reports, just day reports. I'm sure we'd all look forward to those :yes: :yes:

    Lol! Yes, I'm quite sure there are people near home who require the death stare that we need to hear about ;)
