I FINALLY GET TO SEE ME MUM (THE OLD MOO)

 Well... here we are.

Today I finally get to see my Mum and Ron again!

I've not seen Mum since February last year.  Such a long time.

And Ron... I've not seen him for even longer.

It's going to so wonderful to see them both again.

It just utterly sucks that I'm here in these circumstances.  I wish it was different.

But to look for the positives, at least I COULD GET HERE!  I would go through Quarantine again and again if it meant I could see Mum again and again.

But anyway.... first up this morning... up and either walk or catch a taxi to the Domestic Terminal.

And catch my flight to Coffs Harbour!  It's not flying out till 11.15 am, so I do have plenty of time to get myself up and sorted for the day.

To keep you entertained till later... I have a tiny video of my ferry ride yesterday, well actually, I've got two:




And that is all I have for now.  I'm off to get ready for my day.

ONWARD...
Last night was just a bit horrible!
I woke up every hour!  Tossed and turned all night long.
And it was noisy in this motel.  People slamming doors mostly.  Grrrr.

ABOVE: this is how close I am to the airport!
Thank goodness there are bugger all flights at this time... cos it had the potential to be VERY NOISY!  😆😂

I'm up, showered, dressed, packed and just about to put the face on before heading downstairs in search of breakfast and a Diet Coke... or Coke No Sugar, or Pepsi Max!  Right now any of them will do.
ABOVE: And THAT is how cooked spinach should look!

ABOVE: A lovely breakfast! That should keep me going 
all day.

Soon I will catch a taxi to the terminal, then wait a couple of hours for my flight.

It's  now 8.30 am and I'm at the airport... all checked in. My bag was 1.4 kilos overweight and there was a fee of $50, but the lovely lady said NO... I'm letting that go. It's  no charge!
How kind was that?

ABOVE: I'm all set for the next 2 hours.  Next time I update I will be with my Mum and Ron in Coffs Harbour!

ABOVE:  Well... I'm here!
Finally.  On an utterly beautiful day.
Mum was in hospital overnight, but managed to get home in time for my arrival.  How awesome was that.

My flight was perfect, a little bit bumpy in places, but OK.  I really don't like flying at all.
I'm in constant dread we will crash!

But... plenty of time to relax now, before I have to face flying again.

ABOVE:  Let the settling in begin!  Ron just made room in the fridge for Diet Coke.  Yes, I'm sorted.

ABOVE:  Well I've set up my computer on a little writing desk in the lounge.  And that's the view!  Beautiful.

6.12 pm:  And it's been a long day.  I've just had a lovely fish 'n' chips dinner with Mum and Ron.
I couldn't get over the size of the fish!!!
NO photo... we ate it!
Signing off now.
Catch ya tomorrow.

    Have a great day

  4. I think you might find there is a free shuttle over to the airport. Most airport hotels have a shuttle - ask at reception :) I bet you are excited !!!

  7. OMG OMG - You are on your way! Finally. That looks like a beautiful breakfast feast!
    It's funny - there was not a peep about noise from the other hotel. Except when your neighbor was jumping up and down. That's good. If it was two weeks of bad food AND NOISE! I shudder to think. Now, you will be at your Moms and you can relax. Nothing to do, but be there.
    Then, take it from there~!

    Just for you Chris, pain can make people incredibly cranky so don’t take it personally. My Mum did this and she was also very scared, Jo x

    Gosh, those 2 weeks seem to have flown by, though I'm sure it felt like a drag for you, especially with no decent food to look forward to ! You have coped amazingly though, and kept us all entertained with your updates. Great picture of you and your Mum, and what gorgeous views you have there. Hope all goes well with Mum's health, she is lucky to have you taking care of her now. Best wishes
