That's about as greyhound-like as I get. :-)
I'm off to Belfast for a couple of days work, going via Birmingham. Travel here was about as painless as it can possibly get, as transit through was easy too. Brilliant.
I bought a bottle of water in Smiths: £1.89 alone or free with a paper costing £1.40.
My one nervous moment was taking some antibody samples through security. Obviously they are in small tubes with hand written labels (I was tempted briefly to label 1 as anthrax, but that wouldn't really be funny). They swabbed the samples, found they were negative an handed them back. No worries. The tubes are in a bag with my toothpaste and deodorant, do they had BETTER be safe. ;-)
Still saying 'gate open in 5 min' after 10min wait.
