Over the pond
Left Boston for Newark around 5:30 yesterday evening (ash was blown north of the UK a day earlier, opening all the airports again), then spent an uncomfortable night on Continental flight 100 to Manchester. No sleep, but no delays and after a train ride across the Pennines and a lift from the station from my older sister I made it to mum's house by around 2:30 this afternoon. Feeling pretty good, so we went for a local walk through Hetchell Woods and were amazed by the bluebells. Forecast for the first three days of digging is now sun, cloud, light rain, so looking pretty good. Time for some much needed sleep and will try to get up at 8am...
