Well it was that time of year again when the mass migration of dogs and owners make ther way to the NEC at Birmingham for "The greatest dog show in the world" ( that was what the commentator kept saying in the arena).
This year I went with my good friend Carol Anne, who, like me does'nt show anymore but just enjoys the time spent there. We decided to be gluttons and attend all 4 days arranged by
"Love's Travels" (who is actually Carol Annes husband!!)
Day one....Thurs 5th March .....armed with all our carefully calculated money bags for B&B,taxi's,food etc we headed out to Glasgow airport to fly down to Birmingham.Booked in and headed to the departure lounge, going through security Carol Anne was stopped and had the full once over,having recovered from that she then informed us we had better get a move on as they will be calling us over the tannoy soon, so as we frog marched to what seemed like the other side of scotland we arrived at our gate and as not alot of people were there I then checked the time only to see we had another HOUR.(hmmm)
Flight was very quick just under an hour, we then headed over to the taxi office to book our taxi to the B&B, the idea being, to drop off our suitcase and proceed to the NEC, which carol anne had already informed me that it would probably be about £10 as she had already done the same journey last year.
Nice man at the taxi office, gave him the address he then quoted us £77 WHAT says us, the look on our faces must have taken him aback as he then asked us if we knew we were actually in East Midlands Airport which we found out is more Nottingham than Birmingham. (!$.:*)
