Well, since it's here, I'd better use it for a blog update. And before we get into Chinese airspace, too.
Anyway, I'm on my way to Nanjing! I'll be away from home until the 29th, then on February 1st I launch into a new job, in Redditch, which means I'll be moving house again, too. It's all go, but basically I've resolved not to think about any of that until I get back from China, because there's only so much my brain can deal with at once.
I've done my hugely unsatisfactory Images qualifying for the XMT - really annoyingly, I did a practice run of a perfect 18.70 seconds, or something like that, first thing this morning, and then couldn't get close to that any time that I had the 'qualification attempt' box ticked. I'm resigned to setting my sights a bit lower now, and aiming for "just barely scraping into the top sixteen". We'll see how it goes.
