Flight

Taking off from Alderney's grass strip

These shots of the iconic trilander which until very recently flew on several Channel Island routes are now historic. Regulation and safety requirements and commercial demands have brought a close to a long, quirky history of inter island travel. In the old days they used to weigh you before giving you a seat number, then they just eyed you up and down while standing on the tarmac with the other passengers. You could always tell the tourist who was experiencing this for the first time- the sweat beads dripping off his nose.

This week's challenge set by Nancy gives me a chance to say 'farewell' 'au revoir' 'auf wiedersehen' to the Aurigny trilander.

Hello! I’m Anne and it’s a pleasure to have you look in on my little food blog. As a Thermomix user for more than 10 years and an advisor I can tell you the tips, tricks and greatness of this kitchen wonder. Most of the recipes have Thermomix instructions but please dive in - a sponge is a sponge, and pastry can be made traditionally (but why would you?) I am a keen amateur photographer too, so if you’d like to see what I’m up to please visit my other Instagram page @vannilla
