And just like that February is over. How quick was that? We've had a nice February, we celebrated a big birthday in our house, enjoyed the snow, started a run plan, saw the first snowdrops and now I feel ready for Spring.
One of my best friends, Catherine, has the most amazing knowledge of planes and flying. If you are jetting away on holiday and you tell her your flight number. she can tell you what type of plane you will be flying on.
