We are now at Sydney airport awaiting the big bird.
The dogs and cats were picked up this morning and would have to go down as one of life's more traumatic experiences; as much as we told them that we would see them soon they just didn't get it!! I think we can now honestly say we will not be back in Oz till they have all shuffled off this mortal coil! It is way too hard to say goodbye to them and put them through all this - as expected, mind you !
Elaine finally had the much anticipated breakdown at Sydney airport after we had checked in.....she rang her Aunty for a final chat and that was it ... the flood gates opened ! Myself, I feel fantastic, probably due to having a few bevvies - or maybe my breakdown will come later !!!
So - with that we bid farewell to Aus - we have 45 mins 'til take off - it has been an amazing country to live in - indeed, the land of opportunity
.... pity about the crap drivers ... 'but' !!!
