Have they really gone?

There's no way of describing the vacuum that is created when a bunch of people with whom one has been confined for a few weeks disappears in to thin air.

When one of the people concerned is a little over one year old, the silence in that void is absolutely deafening. For an instant, when the shuttle arrived to transport them away, we were sad that it had all come so abruptly to an end.

Then were at a loss, constantly checking beneath our feet an over our shoulder to ensure we weren't about to step on her.

Even the statue of Physical Energy in Hyde park seemed to have stopped mid salad to check that all is well.   By tomorrow they will be back where they started, and with just a little effort, we will be winding back to a far more sensible cruising pace.

It will be quiet though.
