There is one small up side to this... I can relax and stop cleaning the flat.
In order to keep the parts of the flat clean that I have already done Ari suggested I wrap the areas in cling film.
Feeling partly relieved and partly disappointed. Disappointed Ari won't be here tonight and relieved as she will be here next monday... as at one point in this epic I got the wrong idea and thought she wasn't coming at all.
Also relieved at how Ari was laughing at how dumb the airline was being.
