Wednesday part 2
We arrived at Liverpool , John Lennon airport in good time. Amelia did a great impression of the TV show Airport displaying her talent for speaking in a Liverpool accent or was it Irish? As tradition requires, we did a photo shoot next to the Yellow Submarine sculpture, singing that popular Beatles song 'We all Iive in a Yellow Submarine' (well at least we managed the first line). Checking in was fine except for Megan's bag which had to be taken to the oversized counter. The security guard smiled and made a comment about the contents! Megan assured them that the articles of liquid ( wink , wink) were a gift for the host family. Getting through security was interesting for a few of us! Mrs White looked guilty as she was being scanned and unfortunately for the security guard, Mr Ludlow was requested to take his shoes off! All was going smooth in the departure lounge, until a short panic occurred. As we were meandering towards the Gate a loud call came whistling through the air, "will passengers Lobb and Ludlow please proceed immediately to the Gate 8, the plane is about to depart! " Whoops! Like true Olympians team 2012 legged it! Once on board and the plane was in the air the children settled down to munching through as many sweets as they could. Ethan managed to smuggle Dees Marvellous fruitcake onto the plane. Mysteriously the fruit cake came to a sticky end never to be seen again. We know what happened don't we Ethan? Our little secret! The children were great on the flight, although the group were split up they all enjoyed the experience. In true Easy Jet style the pilot mentioned the school trip, wishing them well. Oh and he also wished Mrs White a happy birthday!!!! I really don't know how he got that one wrong! The plane landed and bags collected. We had a final group huddle, a few words of wisdom from Mr Ludlow who tried to reassure the staff they would be fine. As expected cheers of adulation rang out as team 2012 entered the arrival hall. The staff are looking forward to meeting the children and hearing about their experiences in the morning. But now we need to celebrate Mrs White's birthday!
