You Are Kidding!!!

You Are Kidding Qantas!!!!!!!

One easy way to make a nice relaxed week on the beautiful New South Wales Coast get a little stressful. The airline you are due to fly back home on Friday grounds all of their aircraft - worldwide. Now normally it wouldn't worry me but now that I am running a Bed & Breakfast and I have both rooms booked this weekend and I really need to get back to Melbourne on Friday. Plus I am travelling with Rachel and Clare who is only 5 1/2 mths, we would like to have things run smoothing with a little one. I am using all the positive thinking I have in me as I am sure it will all be rectified in the next 6 days. But just in case I will also check what other options we have.

Today is the start of our weeks visit with my son Shane, his partner Stacey and my beautiful grandson O'Shea. My daughter Rachel, my grandaughter Clare and I caught a morning flight to Canberra which took just over an hour. This was Clare's 1st time on a plane and she was great. All I can say thank goodness she is breast fed.

Once we picked up our hire car it was of on the almost 2 hour drive to Nelligen. The car we have got is a Suzuki Kizashi (which I have never heard of) and to start and stop the engine you just push a button. Really weird concept to get my head around but it goes pretty good. Clare slept all of the way and Rachel slept most of the way. We are now in Nelligen almost all are asleep and I am just sitting enjoying being with both my children and their children.

Sad Note: For those out there who have read my blog previously you may have heard me mention Shane & Stacey's two beautiful dogs Mitch and Bosco. Well last week Mitch passed away - he was only 3 1/2 years old and it is thought that he was bitten by a snake. He was such a beautiful well behaved dog and is sadly missed especially by Stacey and his best friend Bosco.
