Moments like this make me lucky

No matter what, I am fortunate in sitting here, on deck nine of Cunard's Queen Victoria. Green tea beside me, a beautiful view all round and technically I'm working.

The day began at 4am to ensure I was in position atop a car park, watching the three Queens - Elizabeth, Victoria and Mary - arrive in Southampton in style. As ships' whistles blew a very loud Happy Birthday to Queen Mary 2 in honour of her tenth birthday, I realised that it was a tiny moment in history.

Life as a writer is pretty awesome and long may it continue.
