First day proper of trip, disaster overcome

Close call!

26 °C

Thursday 30th May, I left home early to make sure I met Rick on our trip to Manchester Airport, little did I know of the upcoming drama and stress. My train stopped just outside Leeds station, where it remained for almost two hours due to a person threatening suicide in Leeds Station. During the two hours I was relatively calm, calling Rick, stuck at York Station and getting him a lift to Leeds, calling Cathay re alternative flight options, not having a heart attack! JC eventually drove us from Leeds to the airport and managed to get us there with time to spare due to his driving, very much thanks appreciated. Painless trip be honest.

Arrived HK, met family, Matilda has grown and can run! Watched rugby toys training, visited an island for seafood lunch, helped with furniture removal and just tried to get into local time before flight to China. 7AF1A221-EFA1-468A-8C6B-403DAE087A5D.jpeg9700E9BD-A7CF-4040-A64C-6CDABC411F3F.jpeg5800D71A-4CA6-4C97-BC9F-2AB73853F120.jpeg111E5D26-A577-4606-87E0-398C495A1EDA.jpeg21428D93-F62B-4D8B-90E5-56670ACC04C7.jpeg
