Spirited notes from a desert island: 29th September 17

I'm sorry, but I can't ignore it, even though I know that I'm going to sound like a stereotypical Brit. I'm going to have to talk about the weather. For nine months I've been singing the praises of Fuerteventuran sunshine. But when three relatives from the UK came to visit it rained!

Not a lot - nothing like a good Manchester soaking - but just enough to take the shine (if you'll pardon the pun) off a day trip to the magnificent Sottavento beach and Morro Jable.

Are you where you expected to be? Thousands of Ryanair customers aren’t. Whether they are stranded abroad, trapped in UK airports (shades of Tom Hanks in the film Airport!), or coming to terms with the fact that well-earned holidays planned long in advance are not going to happen, life is not turning out as they expected.

 Although the current chaos is the result of one particular airline’s failings, not finding ourselves where we expected to be is actually part of the ordinary landscape of life.
