Today I will mostly be sitting down, currently in T5 Heathrow and soon (I hope) on a plane bound for Boston, Massachusetts.  For the time being, my entertainment is some great artwork around the place, a free wifi connection and eavesdropping in oh so many languages (few of which I understand).

I'm trying to work out what language the chaps sitting behind me are speaking - current vote is for Icelandic but I need to take a closer look at them and see if they fit my image of Icelanders!!

Of course, my anti-boredom kit is in my bag alongside - Nintendo DS, knitting, ipod, book, laptop, two magazines, about a dozen crosswords and sudoku puzzles gleaned from newspapers in readiness for a journey and paper for Christmas letters to write.

Well, there might not be a film I want to watch.

Saturday morning
