Aussie Life Family My Travels

Must Fly

The time has come for me to make my trip to the UK for Dad’s investiture at Buckingham Palace. My suitcase is packed – lightly, but I am travelling with an extensive shopping list from Chief. Spending a total of 22 hours in the air is certainly an endurance test but at the same time, a period for reflection. You do feel that your life is in suspension while you’re up there seeing the earth from a different perspective – I like to take stock. I’ll watch a film or six, read my book, eat and drink then TRY to sleep.  I arrive into Heathrow where it’s a good 20 degrees or so cooler than Brisbane, early Friday morning.  It will be a shock to my system but hopefully keep me awake until I reach my final destination.  I’ll catch up on the flipside!

Life - part two; Australia. Having spent the first 39 years of my life in England, with two adult children who don't need me so much, a workaholic husband and a head full of stuff waiting to be unleashed, Waking the Wombat is my place to share life's experiences with you.
