I'm here for a week with my mum and I wanted to share a funny story from our journey. As those of you who have read my previous blogs will know, my mum is 83 and she doesn't often travel abroad. In fact the first time I brought her out to Spain she asked IF she needed a passport!
For this trip she'd packed her case at home and also had her hand luggage ready. As I was at work it fell to my Chris to find a clear plastic bag to pop her small toiletries into. He also asked her if she had anything sharp in her hand luggage, to which she replied no.
So there we were at 7am on Wednesday morning going through security and mum's bag was pulled for examination. The security girl was really nice when she asked mum if she had anything sharp in her bag. Again my mum replied no. She started to go through the bag and came across a small package. 'What's in here?', she asked. 'Just a little sewing kit', says my mum. Nothing sharp in there then, except for the scissors and half a dozen needles!
The security girl carried on her investigation and found a small bag with two miniature bottles of perfume and a full-sized Liz Earle Superskin Concentrate! Fortunately for mum the security girl was really kind and let her keep everything. I wonder, have you ever had anything confiscated at the airport?
And speaking of Liz Earle, watch out for her next TSV on Saturday 17th October – I know my mum will be.
Also just wanted to say 'Hi' to a lady called Alison who we bumped into at the airport and who's a big QVC fan, particularly of Bare Escentuals. I asked her where she was flying to and she said Alicante, the same as me. We got on the plane and she was sat on the same row as us across the aisle. As we got off the plane I quipped 'I don't suppose you're going to Javea are you?' You guessed it, she was!!! What a small world!
See you all soon,
