Granny Jean in Beijing
Met mum at the airport this morning. Mary & Nick had put her on the plane at Heathrow yesterday with BAA special assistance and a 14-point plan of what to do & when, and out she emerged 10 hours later having not slept a wink, but looking fine nonetheless. Got to hand it to her: 84 and continuously up for new experiences. And so begins a 10-day visit. Ed Vaizey's has nothing on this.
