Holidays without the kids give you time to enjoy things that would usually be a complete headache.


For some, the plane journey to your destination is just an annoyance before the real fun begins however, for others that time in the sky is just the pre-party.


Whatever category you fit into there is one thing we all have in common... well, nine things actually.


1. I have everything ready to go


With all your travel documents printed and organised, you strut up to that counter reader to zip by without any trouble only to realise you've left your passport in your suitcase.

2. Maybe I’ll be seated next to someone gorgeous... or famous


You sit in your row waiting to see who you’ll be enjoying the next few hours hoping they'll either be good looking or even famous. Then you realise it’s the person that who decided to bring tuna sandwiches on board for a mid-flight snack.

3. Not this time ears; I’ve come prepared


You’ve stocked up on sucky-sweets determined to avoid the agonising pain caused by the rising altitude only to get carried away and be left with nothing for landing.

4. I think it’s time to pop on my cosy flight socks


You knew that overpriced pair fluffy socks would come in handy but after spending the last 3 hours racing to make sure you made your flight, taking off your shoes might release an odour that is unsafe to release on your fellow passengers.

5. I’m going to fly through the novel I got at the airport bookshop


Sitting proudly on the top shelf of ‘Books to read while you fly’ you convince yourself that you’ll be a more enlightened and well-read person at the end of your journey. Only to pass out 10 minutes after take-off and wake to find a string of drool on your neighbours shoulder.

6. I’ll just nip to the bathroom


After climbing your way across your row, you make it to the bathroom to find it’s engaged. You wait a few moments only to give up and head back to your seat. Next thing, the door swings open and you head back just to be nipped to the post once again... the dance continues.

7. I’d love a glass of wine, thank you


It’s your holiday and you decide to start the party early by enjoying one glass of wine. Forgetting you had a slice of toast and half a banana for breakfast four hours ago, things get a little out of hand.

8. Where are my headphones?


After all your careful planning and preparation you root around your bag to realise you’ve left your headphones in your suitcase in the overhead locker. The people next to you will skin you alive and sell you for parts if you try and get out again.

9. Flying makes me feel so glamorous


You imagine the days when flying was fashionable and luxurious and think ‘that’s just like me’. And as you ready yourself to step off that plane looking ever the glamour-puss, you nearly fall over thanks to the gust of wind that has you looking more like a crazed cockatoo than a 60s pin-up.
