After a lazy two days we ventured out and off to meal with Marianne, Michael and Will – off we went via Valencia St, which is looking fine, and the sky was an amazing clear colour

Out to brunch with Chad and Gene, had an amazing bloody mary in the ‘Hi Tops’ bar, then Starbelly for my first Hawaiian meal, Loco Moco, Japanese Rice, Meat Patty, Soy Sauce and fried egg on top! Madness

Later out to Emparcadero via the Ferry building to pick up oils. Saw the film Pride, on seats that moved into a bed so you were lying down watching a film, odd, all we needed were duvets really.

Then off to Clift, Redwood Room for blackberry margaritas!!

Dinner in the hotel which was very lovely, pumpkin tortillina. Squeak was pooped with jetlag, I hardly slept with my tickly throat/ cough

At 3 am we went into the airport for snacks, it was busy with people waiting for their flights, it really wasn’t a pretty sight. Back to room, I suddenly felt very thankful even with my cold that I was warm and able to lie in a bed and not try to sleep in a cold, drafty airport.

At 5 Paul left for Estonia, amazingly I fell asleep for 2 hours and the alarm woke me at 7.30, to say I felt rough would be a vast understatement. Dragged myself into the shower, had a full English in the hotel and into the airport, 2 hours later I was on a plane to France

The darlings at San Francisco airport had opened my suitcase for security reasons and didn’t close the bottle properly, which meant it leaked into my case, after reading the ‘get out clauses’ from the company there is no point in trying to make a claim
