paternity leave contract and I had all week at the same school that I really
like. We have got into a bit of routine through the week. Get up early, get the
bus and train together, then I get off and swap trains, work all day, head home
and meet at Clapham Junction. Now when I got there first I normally hit up the

I had never been to Gatwick airport and so was previously unaware of the existence of a time portal which forced the main terminal to stay in 1965.
