It’s Christmas at Central. Our train was delayed due to track failure and congestion, but I already knew that would happen with the storms.
Made it home and home to stay. I left the office at one in the afternoon, passed three police cars on the Hume Highway, then suffered my only delay at the exit of the M5 to Fairford Road. I was pretty tired after the ride, but no rest as I had to take Alex to his tennis lessons, have a quick Thai meal with the family then attend an urgently called after school care committee meeting. After 8pm when I returned home hot and sticky. Can’t believe it will be 40 degrees Celsius tomorrow!
At least I proved that I can drive long distances, but B certainly has my utmost respect for all her years of such journeys.
The journey is almost over, just a bus ride home remains. It was a pleasant Jetstar A320 flight back from Cairns with a cheerful crew. We had $25 meal credit so instead of food we used it to buy a Jetstar 787 model.
We all slept on the flight, which had some lovely views of Sydney on descent. A good end to a long trip.
I’ll write a summation up later. After a shower and a sleep and everything else about coming home.
