Well here I am, back again after my holiday.
Obviously the three week trip, with my 86 year old, partially disabled mother to visit family in Australia and meet my new grandson gives me plenty to write/blog about but I will just give edited highlights as and when they come to mind over the next few days. I may even throw in a photo or two.
We arrived back into Heathrow on Wednesday afternoon and dear old Bob was there to meet us. Because of mum's disability, (she can walk with a stick but only for very short distances) we have wheelchair assistance at the airports and this is such a boon. Once checked in we are helped every step of the way (so to speak)! Being first onto the plane and waiting until last to get off again makes life so much easier - no mad scrambles. We landed at 3.10 pm and were actually driving out of the car park at 3.50 pm and that included a comfort break for mum. Pretty good going I'd say. Bob was amazed to see us come through so quickly.
The weather was beautiful and by the time we arrived back home there was a stunning sunset. A wonderful welcome home.
So, Australian holiday over I now have to concentrate over the next 10 days on my twin aunts' surprise birthday cake (for the party on 5 November) and repacking my suitcase and Bob's for our trip to India on 20 October.
And I have missed being in touch with fellow bloggers so will catch up with your most recent missives as soon as I can.
