A Little Taste of Champagne and Philosophy #MyFTWeekend - Click here now to read: http://bit.ly/2cMlVd8

Flushed with their recent success, the Brexiteers have now voted in the Five Day Weekend Party. Thursday therefore, sees me sending the limo to pick up my octogenarian mum and aunt from Yorkshire. They arrive at Heathrow in time for a late afternoon flight to Athens. Relaxing in the first class lounge before our flight, we indulge in a glass of celebratory pink champagne. It is not every day that you win such a wonderful prize. In Athens, our base is the Hellenic Grande suite at the AthensWas Hotel. It elicits lots of giggles from the 'Girls' as they explore their new surroundings. The private terrace becomes the venue for deep philosophical discussions, prompted by visits to archaeological sites. Why, for example, are women always left holding up the sky? Feeling re-energized, we return to the not so fast lane.
