I took Rick out for his walk this afternoon, it was absolutely freezing. We are nice and cosy indoors now sitting in front of the fire with my flameless candles flickering away.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the world in Sydney, daughter Sarah has just got into a taxi to go to the airport. It’s 3.00 a.m. her time and she’s only had an hour’s sleep. Hopefully she will be able to catch up on her sleep during the flight. It’s a balmy 21 degrees even at that time of day.
Tomorrow we shall leave home mid afternoon and head towards Manchester Airport. We haven’t done the journey before and will probably be sticking to the motorway. Hold ups are likely on a Friday afternoon as we pass Leeds, Huddersfield and Rochdale so we are allowing plenty of time. We have been advised to avoid Snake Pass that directly crosses the Pennines at this time of year. I am hoping any snowfall will stay away until the weekend.
If all goes according to plan we will be in the Arrivals hall when Sarah disembarks at 6.40 p.m. She will probably be wearing t-shirt, shorts and flip flops. I shall be taking a spare coat and furry boots for her.
|I just told her to take a selfie for me|
What I want to know is why someone is travelling with 4 ceiling fans....ReplyDelete
Perhaps it's going to be hot on the flight.Delete
You all have safe journeys and enjoy putting the Christmas Tree up. Is Rick travelling?ReplyDelete
Change of plan. Kat is meeting her at the airport and bringing her back. We shall wait at home with Rick.Delete
Have an easy ride to the airport and a lot of joy on the coming holiday.ReplyDelete
Her sister Kat is picking her up now so it will save us the journey.Delete
I am sure you are so looking forward to seeing her and to showing her your new abode and Lincolnshire too.ReplyDelete
Can't wait to see her and show her around.Delete
I can feel the excitement growing.ReplyDelete
We are bouncing off the walls here.Delete
I hope that Sarah's journey goes smoothly and on schedule.ReplyDelete
I was amazed to get a message from her mid flight. She has got a limited WiFI connection.Delete
Enjoy seeing your daughter (both your daughters!) again. So nice that she is able to come home! -JennReplyDelete
It will be wonderful to have them both home.Delete
I can remember once flying back from Miami, in December. We were all in Shorts and T Shirts, and the Captain announced that it was snowing at Heathrow. Everybody laughed, thinking it was a joke. On arrival we all had to unpack our suitcases to find warm clothes; he'd been right.ReplyDelete
Nice to have your girls with you. Their first Christmas in the new home. Cold here too!
It always makes me laugh watching people arrive from Oz in their shorts and flip-flops, sorry, thongs!Delete
This is a wonderful way to get the festive season off to a good start!ReplyDelete
Our Christmas starts early.Delete
I guess that the best presents to you this Christmas will be Kat and Sarah's presence.ReplyDelete
Absolutely, that's all we want.Delete
It seems a long time ago that she was in a taxi at 3am.ReplyDelete
Still travelling now. Due to land in half an hour and then a 2 hour drive home.Delete
Personally can’t understand anyone travelling overseas in shorts and thongs no matter what the weather !ReplyDelete
Lovely to get both your girls back!!ReplyDelete
It doesn't happen very often that we are all together.Delete
Sarah is so pretty! I know you're delighted to have her home. Be safe aND warm.ReplyDelete
I think so too but I'm a bit biased!Delete
I am writing this late afternoon on Saturday so expect she is home by now and maybe sleeping it off. Enjoy your girls - I am sure Rick will welcome them too.ReplyDelete
Two daughters sitting on the sofa chatting away! Wonderful to have them home together.Delete
