... Oh. Now, I'd done my homework on this and I knew that Tenerife is on British time, but my phone didnt and had automatically gone an hour forward when we flew over Spain. Like I said I didnt even see a clock that worked properly earlier in the week, so how would I have known? We now had the luxury of sitting on the pavment for the next 45 minutes. A sense of humour is essential at times like these and I'm really glad that Jayne has one. It could only have happened to ...

Tomorrow we were going to try and get out for some jolly japes on the high seas.

It was now time to march indignantly down to the Ryanair desk and shout at someone, but someone had beaten us to it and Ryanair were one step ahead of us all. There was no one working at the desk. The bloke in front us had a problem, his ticket had been issued with the wrong name on it, so he hadnt been allowed to board his flight. When thebattle hardened lady from Ryanair showed up, he was ...
