A friend was picking me up from Stansted aiport – not for airborne travel, you understand, just for a lift in her car. Obviously I had to get there 45 minutes early for a photo opportunity. Even so, things weren’t looking good to start with. What can I tell you? International travel isn’t what it used to be – I was surrounded by arguing couples and staff wearing fluorescent vests. Where were the dashing airline pilots and glamorous air hostesses?
I sat down and had an early breakfast, resigned to a poor show. Then I spotted one of these ladies.
‘Please can I have a photo with you, please, please, please?’ I begged shamelessly.
‘Do you want a photo with two of us?’ she asked, just before my head exploded with delight.
That big grin I’m wearing? That’s me forcing myself to stay calm, squeezed between the beautiful Rebecca and Cath.
Best of all? My Simplicity 2245 Lisette is colour coordinated with the Easy Jet uniform. This morning, my childhood dreams of being a glamorous air hostess were as close as ever they’d come to being realised. How cool is that?
You’re probably thinking I can’t top this photo.
I still have 26 days left…
