The perils of jetlag


This is what happens when it's 9.30pm and you had no more than 15 minutes' sleep the night before, and that was sitting in BA economy leaning your head on a tiny pillow on the back of the seat in front of you.

This is the outcome, when you let your attention lapse momentarily, dropping a ball of yarn as you go down the stairs in the dark, and then bend to pick it up without properly judging the distance between your head and the post at the bottom of the bannister.

This is what it looks like next day, even though you sat for half an hour with a bag of frozen broad beans on your eyebrow to take the swelling down!

Looking on the bright side, I had fun coming up with explanations for my colleagues! Even better, the suitcase is on its way.....

Everyone knows you are supposed to use a bag of frozen "Black-eyed peas" in situations like yours.
