Just a quick post to let you know that I am now back home - at least for the time being.
We arrived at Manchester Airport at 6am today for our 8 o'clock flight only to be told to wait in arrivals for an update at 8am. At 8am they told us to wait until 9.45am and then they told us to go upstairs to the Thomas Cook desk. When we got there we were told to go home because the flight had been indefinitely postponed. We would not be going today and they will telephone us when we have to go back to the airport.
By now we should have been in sunny Madeira but instead we are in cold, rainy Yorkshire.
I just hope I don't have to get up at 4.00 in the morning again!!
