It's so much nicer to come home
I returned to the UK this morning (thanks EasyJet) and immediately turned on R4 in my car as I drove back to Cambridge from Luton airport. The absence of news for a few days has done me no harm whatsoever. I am far too much of a news junkie - and it doesn't make me any happier to listen to the same dreary tales of misery in the world. All that's changed in the few days is the fireman's strike.
I went straight from the airport into a heavy negotiating session (which I'd expected) - by the time I finally managed to put my feet up, it was 9 o'clock and I fell asleep happily on the sofa. Alfred cuddled me, which made for a perfect homecoming.

or Rome, but it's so much nicer, yes it's so much nicer to come home"
