Got Pictures!

OK. Got LOADSA PICTURES! So here's The Manchester Airport Collection.

It's June 29th 2006 I've flown overnight from Dubai to Manchester via Istanbul, and I've got a few hours before the flight onward to Malaga. First we have: my backpack, my little satchel, my boots (I wore them rather than carry them.) and evidence of a rather nice lunch. Lunch was a ciabatta toastie with goat cheese, roasted vegetables and onion marmalade (I dunno: airport food...) helped down with a smoothie.

It's not just that I enjoyed the drink; I was also utterly seduced by the ingredient label (cheaper and less intimidating than a copy of Cosmopolitan).

This, my darlings, is what goes into an 'Innocent' Raspberry and Cranberry Pure Fruit Smoothie:

2½ pressed apples
½ a mashed banana
12 crushed raspberries
½ a freshly squeezed orange
62 crushed cranberries.

There! How was that for you? I saw a feature on the 'Innocent' people on the BBC last year. How fab to go from your kitchen to mass production with something like this.

Missing from picture: una bolsa amarilla (little yellow bag). Reason for absence: You can't see the runway at Istanbul from Manchester. But I'm not stressed, because I've had a sit-down and a smoothie, and some very nice guys have promised to fix the Internet kiosk so that I can talk to Habibi.

And so they did.
Thank you gentlemen.

And this is just a bunch of girls heading out for some fun. Way to go ladies.
