Home again!

We made it! We’re home!

The dreaded 14.5 hour flight worked out just fine, and we made it back to sunny Scotland yesterday lunchtime…

Staying with my wonderful parents for a night or two, to allow us to unpack our attic, and restore our home to something approaching normality, and to allow K and I to get some much-needed sleep. Jet lag isn’t too bad – we all slept reasonably well last night, but the kids were up at 6am this morning.

However, all this is minus one bag, thanks to the check-in lady at Sydney Airport forgetting to put a tag on one of the bags. The bag hasn’t made it to Scotland yet, and we’re well past the 24 hour point. I suspect it’s sitting moldering away in a corner of Sydney Airport. Of course, they may also have blown it up by now 🙁 . It’s mostly the kid’s clothes (but A is very upset because his birthday top and trousers are in there), and the laptop (thankfully backed-up, but still…) and worst of all – my just-finished knitted top, which I hadn’t even had a chance to seam 🙁 🙁 .

We have our doubts about the tracking system – because the bag wasn’t tagged. The bag does have K’s address and telephone number on both the inside and outside – but the bag apparently went through under my name – and there’s no place on the missing bag report to put such details, so if they are looking at all, they are looking for a bag with my name on it, not K’s. So we’re going to try calling Sydney Airport ourselves and see if we can find out what happened. I have my doubts that we will ever see that bag again 🙁 .

Still, on the bright side, we have our house and our car back, and the sun is shining. It’s great to be home!

This blog has served different purposes over the years - it started out following a Three Beautiful Things (3BT) structure: and I used to record three things, often the ordinary moments in life, which made me smile that smile. Then, I joined a community of knitters sharing my progress on what I was knitting that week. Now, after a long hiatus, I'm back to share an unusual new knitting project...
