hello all - checking in from Sydney - long, long, long journey....got delayed in Dublin 1.5 hours...got delayed in Abu Dhabi 1 hour - total in the air 22 hours - plus a 4 hour bus journey to get to Dublin...and to top it off I can't sleep in planes or buses (or cars!!) so I'm feeling a wee bit spaced out and a bit sick - it's 5.08 Thursday afternoon and I've been awake since Monday (didn't sleep well Monday night)...but dropped LMF off to her college - she was met with the welcome team who were LOVELY! They took the newbies to the banks to set up local accounts...took them to the cellular people to set up their phones....took them to their house and got them all settled in and are taking them out to dinner tonight! Totally set my mind at ease.
*falls onto pillow* will sightsee next few days when we come round...long haul is not for pansies!!
Morning all - last (half) day of work before our big trip starting tomorrow....very emotional day yesterday - LMF had to say goodbye to a lot of people...a bunch of her friends, all the guys at church, some family members. The Big Good Bye is tomorrow where she says bye to BGD and Jenn and family...this is hard! :'(
In mundane news - I've got a pink hot water bottle in my lap as it's so cold here!!
