Yay!

Sarah, Ryan and I are bad together. We talk too much about high school. :)

Up early (4am) for 5am pickup to the airport for 7am flight. Found a huge cicada at the airport. Asked for window seats, managed to get one on the Kuching – KL flight. KL – Perth flight was overbooked. We were told, “We’ve managed to get you three seats.” I should bloody well hope so, seeing as we booked over a month ago.


Cicada Cicada

This poor cicada was dying. But it's most distinguishing feature was its size. A good 15cm long.



Flight from Kuching to KL was easy. Breakfast was crap though. Had to rush through KLIA and catch a train to the other terminal to board on time. No time for water or chocolate or even a sit down.

We were on a flight with a bunch of band kids from Churchlands. They’d been in London and Vienna for Mozart’s birthday. Flight home was in a Boeing 777. MUCH more pleasant than the airbus on the way up. Seemed a bit more roomy, and every seat had it’s own screen with TV, movies, radio stations (including good English ones) and games. Made the trip much more tolerable.

Baggage retrieval was interesting because all the kids were checking their instruments for any damage, it was like orchestra soundcheck, French horns, trombones, trumpets, saxophones, guitars, oboes, flutes etc. No cello was played, but I did see one among the luggage.

Quarrantine was no problem, the women who checked us actually drives in to work with Auntie Laine. Apparently her name was Eleanor Rigby. My bamboo hanger got through the flight intact. Craig, Matty, Lachie and Shell greeted us. First Aussie bird – Australian Raven. Got home and had a milo milk and Red Rooster for dinner. Sorted e-mails, waited for Matt to arrive. Phantom sat on my lap for a bit and thoroughly enjoyed the fire dad lit.

Back home home now. Lil is all over me. Have to get the place sorted again but can do that once Matt’s folks leave. I hate the cold already.

There are no other photos from Day 14.
