Off to Dortmund via Dusseldorf.
Nice and early.
The flight leaves at 9.05 (in theory) from Heathrow, so that's reasonably civilised (out of the house at 5.00am).
p.s. the'good' thing is that I have a 'new' mobile phone - a Nokia 6021 - provided as a corporate tool. And it's on a contract, rather than PAYG, so it won't run out of credit in countries where topping up is not possible, and should even work in the US.
