Even prouder of my girl.
Her first ever flight and she did it big style!
I'm proud of myself for letting her go! My darling Aunty said to me and the HG. We gave her roots and we gave her wings! ( I thought We also gave her the airfare! )
Timeline of the last few days. Times are all a bit mixed up due to time zones etc! I'm too tired to properly convert them etc!
Fasten your seatbelt. Here we go!
3.12am - waved Miss 21 off
5.22am - text off Miss 21
" Checked in waiting to hand my bag over, leaving here at 7:55 land in Amsterdam at 10:20 leave at 1230 and arrive in China at 6:45 tomorrow then I get to New Zealand at 6:40 but it will be 7 here on Wednesday night "
(9.00 - 5.30pm - zombie at work)
9.47am Message to say she's landed in Amsterdam
10.29am Message to say she's about to get on the next plane
5.30pm - 10pm - fretted
10pm - 1.30am - in bed fretfully snoozing
She'd landed in China after 11 hours on the plane. Her ears hurt. She was fine. The bottled water tasted horrid.
She'd had sweet chilli pork for her tea and omelette for her breakfast. She had a seven hour wait for the next plane.
She chose to ignore that!
Needless to say I didn't really sleep soundly after that! Although according to the HG I was full on snoring! I never heard anything!!
6.15am dragged myself out of bed and was like a zombie on edge all day
Her friends in NZ who were waiting for her sent me this!
I breathed a huge sigh of relief! The plane had landed. Now we just had to wait to see that a) she was on it and b) she got through customs!
After an agonising wait this came
Then the one that made me cry
Awww, made me all teary again! It's frankly the absolutely best photo I've seen in forever.
Sooo finally I could chill and relax and just go to bed!
It was Wednesday the 6th. 12th Night! I had to
Take. The. Tree. Down.
( I was convinced I had til Thursday, absolutely convinced! )
It didn't take long, though I was almost on my knees with knackeredness!
Bye bye Father Christmas Tree Topper in your cloak of purple velvet for another year! He's as old as Miss 21!
That'll do for today! I'm done in X
Lots of love from
