I have to say that the flight back from Thailand last Thursday was excuciating. At the time I could sit comfortably for about 20 minutes at a time, so to sit for 12 hours was....an ordeal. I am grateful for the tolerance of the travellers sat next to me, who must have noticed that I was pretty constantly in motion and to the flight entertainment system for the films and tetris game which allowed me to focus on something other my soreness.
I am enternally grateful to Dee Palmer who came out of no-where to drive me home from Heathrow. Fortunately she was able to drop me at salisbury station for me to catch the train back to Sherborne allowing her to get back to Sussex before midnight.
It was rather a shock to the system to return from Thailand's 30-32 degree heat to about minus 3 in Dorset when I got home. But I soon had the heating on and the blankets over my head.
I am still rather sore and so not sleeping entirely easily, which is a bind, but things do seem to be improving bit by bit.
I'll keep you posted.
