Feeling refreshed at 4am after a good nights sleep, starting to lag again as we catch the flight to Biarritz at 9am.
We get off the plane, go to the luggage carousel and watch a few bags come out, get collected and the carousel stop. Fi and I look around and there are a number of fellow passengers with puzzled looks starting to get that sinking feeling.
The very helpful lady at the information desk informs us our bags were not on the flight and files a lost luggage report.
At this point I recall the words of the basque philosopher Bernard-Paul Heroux
There is no trouble so great or grave that cannot be much diminished by a nice cup of tea.
So we go and get a nice cup of tea.
