Come a long way now Paul! But not for long journeys when you're 6' 4" and packing a few too many pounds!

There's nothing better than someone putting your mind at ease

Pile it on Sean! My palms are usually pissing out like a watering can rose and I'm shaking like a shitting dog and that's only in the terminal!

I seriously hate flying and really am pretty scary to be around for about 3 days before and anything on the plane makes me explode!

I'm pretty tall and cramped which doesn't help and I once had a lout in front of me who kept bouncing back on his seat and squashing me.
I asked him politely twice and the third time I waited until he snuggled on the headrest and then punched the back of the seat that hard he hit his head on his own tray!
The conversation with the stewardess was absolute class as I denied all knowledge but he got the message!

I did a bit of homework and basically you are supposed to be able to walk (10mins) from Edinburgh Airport to Showground?

I think Easyjet go from Liverpool so may look into that?

I did think of the train but it looks a bit of hassle and I think the tramway from the airport to town got ditched?

John Craig has asked me several times if I'm coming up as he's got a few things I might want to see? He'll tell me no more, so if I can sort it I'll go and have a look?

Hillhead is coming up and obviously on my doorstep so I'll have a trip up there.

Yep He's right you'll do it in 10-15 mins depending on what luggage youve brought. Theres a Hilton and an Ibis next door too if your looking for digs.
