Up at 5:00 with the alarm and down for breakfast just before 6:00 when they open.
By 6:45 we have checked-out and are in a taxi on our way to the airport at Suvarnabhumi.  The last time I made this journey in January the traffic was unbelievable with the protestors blocking some roads and one of the major river bridges closed but this morning we are there in about 35mins.
Check-in at 7:45 for BA0010, 11:15 departure for London.
Jiap phones to say she has arrived at the airport and where are we ...  We sit by the check-in desks for an hour so that Jai can have a good farewell chat before we set off.
By 9:15 we have bought a box of orchids, are sat near our departure gate having a snack and are counting the minutes down.
We depart on time as we usually do to be fair and it is not a bad flight with only a little turbulence.  Can almost predict when the flight will get bumpy these days; as we cross northern India close to the Himalaya.
We actually land a few minutes early.  Transfer from T5 to the Central Bus Station and then have a 1 1/4 hr wait for our bus home.  We both have something warm to put on but it is still cold sat waiting.  When we get on the bus the warmth hits us right away and before we reach Slough we are both asleep.  Don't wake up till we are pulling in to Cheltenham.
22:45 we are dropped off and make the short walk home.  About 15mins later I realise that in our sleepy state we have left the box of orchids on the coach !  I hurry back to the end of the alley on the off chance of being able to stop the coach as it returns to Cheltenham but either it has passed already or isn't coming back this way.
[Company deliver orchids to our coach stop tomorrow morning after a quick phone call - thank you Bennetts (National Express) !].
