Wherever you go out at the moment, you hear people wondering where the summer went; and most schools got more than our five and a half weeks. But, that still left plenty of time to go on holiday, meet up with friends and try some new experiences.
Thanks to BA I became the pilot of a Boeing 747 for the afternoon and successfully landed the aircraft at Heathrow. Usually, nothing beats the real thing, and there was nothing simulated about my first Prom, a wonderful mix of totally absorbing Russian music.
Meeting up with friends is always a highlight of the summer, and this year as well as enjoying their company I had a question for them: ‘what should I do next?’ for every time I asked the question, I got a different answer. So, watch this space – it is going to be a busy year ahead!
