After disembarking we spent 3 hours in Singapore airport, again in the SilverKris lounge (red papaya for breakfast Andrea, yum). It was Max’s birthday by this stage so I took him for a walk, found a great indoor playground and bought him a Dora camera. Despite all the fun, he was getting a little hyped up and crazy, so I handed him over to Jason and had a blissful shower, utilizing the fantastic facilities in the lounge, oh how lovely! The second leg boarded and initially all was going well, however the seating configuration wasn’t great as two of our seats were separated in the middle which meant that in order to access the other side of the plane (and our other seats) we had to take a detour through economy (oh my goodness, it was just awful!). Max slept for about two hours but once he woke up the next 7 hours were torture! He was hyper, he was bored, he was running randomly through first class… finally with about 3 hours to go he fell into an exhausted sleep and stayed that way right through disembarking, immigration, customs, baggage reclaim until he reluctantly woke up for the drive down to Swindon.
1. Saying farewell to some very special friends and family. We miss you all so much.
2. Lunch time on business class flight, crying baby, crying toddler, almost crying mother!
