For some strange reason, my previous entry was deleted in the mess of me putting in all my travel plans. So I guess I have to give you a SparkNotes version of it, because I was half drunk with sleeplessness when I wrote it and can't remember half of what was said. 

1st: Flight with Thomas Cook Airlines - jammed into the back seat of the plane beside a woman close to 300 lbs spilling into my chair = NO sleep. 
2nd: Made friends with the stewards who were adorable and awesome and helped the woman two rows up when she passed out. I was sitting on the oxygen tank, hence the forced niceties and friendship. Whatever. The one who was going to Pride in Sydney was my favourite person and he gave me lots of travel and shopping tips - adorable. 
3rd: My Grandad and Pat picked me up because Pat was in fear of drunks in Manchester at 6am. Customs was a breeze because I a) have a white last name and b) don't look at all ethnic. The girl I was talking with was of Iranian descent, they stopped her for nearly 20 mins. 
4th: Drove to Huddersfield. Made breakfast. Took longest nap of life in the Princess Room (felt like I was 5)
5th: Woke up, tea time. 
6th: Went back to bed.
7th: Stayed up until 2am EST, 7am GMT. Saw the sunrise. 
8th: FISH AND CHIPS!!! My favourite. 
9th: Slept some more.
