Our luggage is finally found and in the same city as we are and should be at our door soon....ugh....
The process has not been a smooth one and there has been several formal complaints lodged today about the Airlines handling of the whole situation yesterday,,,,they really did not do well by the passengers.....
we are flying again with them in 5 weeks to another wedding so heres hoping for a much better experience...unfortunately we really only have one airline in our country so kinda minimises competion for better service.....

Anyway....other than that my day has been great today and I have been on track pretty well and am pleased with the path I am going down...woohoo

Caught up with my son's partner/ex partner today for a couple of hours which was rwally nice...great to sit and talk to her about a lot of things and she put me in the picture about a lot of other things as well....

Off to get dinner....
Catch you all tomorrow....

    It is great having them suitcases and other stuff back. They are forever cutting jobs at airlines and it is just causing mayhem. It is just the same in other countries. The alternative I suppose is flying first class.

Have a great day!

    I had my suitcase lost once on my way to Sun Valley to celebrate New Year's with the husband's family. Boy did I panic! All my workout clothes! My ski clothes! But then it showed up later the same day and I had stressed out for nothing. I will never forget that feeling though of standing there at the baggage carousel and watching every one else get their bag and it's empty and mine never came. Horrors!
Glad you are reunited with your stuff, funny how important our stuff is!

Our weather is terrible...we came home and lit the glad we now have it....

Flights were a nightmare today....some were totally cancelled however i decided that if they cancelled flights because of Engineering problems then they could get us home using other aircrafts......was quite fascinating as the electronic check in didn't tell us a flight was was just that hubby noticed 20mins before boarding that we only had boarding passed to half way home....Not at all happy however they put on a special flight which was totally full however obviously the airline person at the start of our trip didn't tell us that we had tpo collect our baggage half way..told us it was booked right to home however arrived home and no bags.....not particuarly happy about that however have no face nothing for tonight.....Our camera with the wedding photoson it is in hubbys luggage so for the airlines sake it had better turn up tomorrow.......

The weadding was superb...a real privilege to be there and also to catch up with a lot of students and ex-students that i haven't seen for a while....
really enjoyed the whole weekend...until of course todays fiasco......

Am off to byes now and will be back tomorrow....

Started off a very rainy thursday however cleared up and became a lovely afternoon....
e put our fire on last night to try it out and hubby is like a kid with a new toy.....the fire actually kept him entertained last night...took place over the TV.....amazing....
Quite pleased with it however need to get some dry wood for it.....found a little dry wood around here and it makes such a difference being dry.....

Full day again today...started at 10am and got home around 5pm......
Have a fairly slow day omorrow with a lunch time appointment and then we head to the airport around 2.30pm to fly to Wellington for a wedding saturday to fly home Sunday....looking forward to the break.....

Hopefulyl will get a blog posted before leaving tomorrow and be back on spark on Sunday....
