An afternoon spent with my brother was fun, and then before we knew it we were back at the airport! The flight was fine, though bumpy ( the lady behind me was having kittens at the turbulence, while Lauren thought it was better than the theme park rides!). I don't like flying- nothing about it appeals - I hate taking off, I hate cruising, the food (and the prices!)... And I especially hate landing! Rather miraculous that we fly anywhere really- but Australia is too big so I just have to suck it up, or spend 3 days driving to get anywhere- and yes I hate car trips almost as much as flying!
But I digress ... We land safely (Much to the woman's behind me delight), and we are home safe, followed by copious amounts of tea, and the sharing of hugs and gifts!
Sharing with Sunday sketches! It's lovely to travel, but its also so nice to come home! ;-)
Thanks to everyone for coming along - your comments were one of the highlights!
