Not Enough Bookshelves: Sleeping Beauty or not

Sleeping Beauty or not

Sleeping Beauty glided through the clouds, all 214 souls on board were fast asleep, except two. They were reading Peeka Who for the hundredth time.

On Monday my son and I flew to the UK. It seemed like a great idea but as the time grew closer I got more nervous. Especially as people kept saying gosh you’re brave or rather you than me or wow, you’re flying alone? With a 14 month old?(which makes no sense, clearly I am not alone I am with a 14 month old!)

But I should not have worried as the 14 month old was an absolute star. Despite only sleeping for two hours(on a night flight!) he remained in high spirits and enjoyed his second transatlantic flight much more than his first.

Unfortunatly his lack of sleep scuppered my plans to a) finally watch The Blind Side b) finish Anna and the French Kiss

Still I couldn’t have asked for a better traveling companion. Or a better airline than Virgin. Who were fabulous and very nice. Plus they NAME their aircraft! How adorable. I’m crossing my fingers that they are all fairy tale characters and we go home on Little Red Riding Hood.

Anyway for now we are in the home country, so blogging will be sporadic (or daily if my jet lag continues). Tomorrow I plan to check out Waterstones YA section, so stay tuned!


  1. Hope your travels are safe and exhilarating! And also, I love the named flights. 🙂


  2. named flights are so cool 🙂 virgin is my fave to fly with as well (not that i do a lot of flying…)
