When we arrived at the airport as it was half term it was RAMMED. I had never seen it so busy. We managed check in relatively unscathed but you know that security bit? The queue was over an hour long. Maybe more. But luckily when you book into the lounge you get to join a fast pass queue so we were in within 10 minutes. The lounge is right next to where you enter the departures area so we grabbed our spot and sat down.
First of all we got the kids hooked up to the wifi. Obvs. This calmed them down as they were so manically excited to be spending time with me, their Dad, Nanny San and Grandad Rog. Next we took a look at what was on offer. All food and drink is complimentary when you enter the lounge. The kids were excited to tuck into sandwiches, biscuits and juice whilst my Dad enjoyed the soup and a cheeky alcoholic drink. I can confirm I had a gin. For my nerves.
After around half an hour I decided to pop out to go and look at the duty free. You know just for research purpose and not to spend a small fortune at the make up counter (I spent a small fortune). It was so busy and hectic I was thankful that my two loons were happily watching YouTube and eating their fifth bag of crisps. I think if they had been confined in the middle we may have had more than the odd tantrum on our hands.
