And so after a long flight - 12+ hours - we arrived in Paris, grabbed a quick drink and then on to Birmingham. Unfortunately, Pat's suitcase decided to stop off in Paris but will hopefully be delivered tomorrow! Back to a sunny UK, with a temperature not much cooler than Hanoi yesterday, where the blossom is in full swing. Lots of memories of a lovely holiday. ...
It was very dark and wet when we woke up to the alarm. Leanne arrived as planned and drove us to the airport. Unfortunately, as we left the M6 there was a huge tail back where we needed to go, presumably due to an accident.. We sat in it for a while, moving 100yds in 10 mins.

... Woke up to an email and text from United to our flight was delayed by 40 minutes (now 50 minutes)... PANIC!!!

... happy for them both. I still find it hilarious that Jacci and I have both found ourselves English men!
Luke, Julie and Eligh moved up to Queensland and are settling in and making a happy life for themselves there. It always makes me smile chatting to Eligh on the phone and hearing what stories he has to tell me. It's so hard to believe that he is almost a three year old. Staggering.
Mum and Geoff continue to be the greatest parents ...
