Once again Celeste took the window seat with Noah next to her and me on the isle. Bronte sat across from me next to mum then Nikita on the other isle.
After we quickly disembarked the plane we headed straight for immigration where we had to say goodbye to mum who lined up in a different line to us as she holds an English Passport. Going through immigration took forever compared to mum who flew through in about 5 minutes. After 30 minutes of waiting in the line after all the English had been let in we were finally seen and let in to England. We found mum down where the bags come out and she had already pulled all our bags off the conveyor belt. After everyone grabbed their bags we headed through customs and off to the train station. The walk to the train station seemed to take forever and the fact that we were all so tired didn't help much either.
When we finally arrived at the train station after racing down there we found out the train didn't leave for 30 minutes. We brought our tickets and headed outside to wait for the train and eventually boarded at 7.45am. The train ride took 3 hours and we finally arrived in Cleethorpes at 10.54am where we were greeted by Uncle Graham, Aunty Pat and Leo 5 minutes later.
We piled into their cars after packing away our suitcases and they took us to their house for lunch. It was nice to finally have an actual meal which consisted of chili and rice, pizza with apple crumble, custard and ice cream for dessert. Once we had finished eating Noah headed outside to play cricket with Leo, dad and Uncle Graham while Celeste and I stayed inside and chatted to Aunty Pat. We then decided to head down to where we would be staying in Willingham Street as Nikita was feeling very sick and most of us were quite tired. After we arrived at the house we unpacked our suitcases and had a look around before dad headed off to pick up our car.
I pulled out the phone book to find the number of my cousin Sophie to let her know I had finally arrived in England. After half an hour of talking dad kicked me off the phone because he said the call would cost too much. We turned on the TV to watch Neighbours and some of the English Soaps while most of the family headed to bed to sleep or just to lie down. We eventually decided that for dinner all we could be bothered to do was order pizza and after 2 hours of putting the order in the pizza finally turned off. By this time dad and I were the only ones still awake so after filling our very hungry bellies we headed straight off to bed at 7pm.
