We both knew that one day in April we would have to go our separate ways and both of us were trying not to think about it too much. Even on the morning of my departure I think it's fair to say we were both 'struggling' to contain certain emotions.
However I was quite surprised at the extreme measures Karen was prepared to take to prevent me from leaving !
I think that setting off a Volcano in Iceland and causing the entire UK airspace to shut down whilst I was mid Atlantic was just one step too far !
So whilst also not bribing the pilot enough (he pulled a pretty neat manoeuvre to avoid the ash cloud) we eventually managed to touch down at Heathrow with about a minute to spare - we landed at 11.59, they shut the airport at 12.00 !!
Nice try Mrs Ramstead - I know you've got a load of followers and fans but didn't realise Mother Nature was on your list too !
