I'm back!

I got back late last night, and so much has happened in the 3 days I was gone!

It "appears" [[AA have allocated up until 15 Feb 2006. :( I was really hoping to get to the 17th... [[AA are now SEVEN days from our date. That makes me very uneasy. Seven. It's like that "cusp" number! There is a (slim) chance we could be included in Nov - but more likely we'll have to wait til Dec. Which ticks me off, I REALLY wanted to be IN CHINA in Dec. Gosh, I'm a whinging old cow, aren't I?!! I should be looking at the bright side - WE ARE GOING TO SEE (a picture of) OUR CHILD THIS YEAR!!!

I'm going to make a slideshow of the photos I took while I was travelling home. Yes, I travelled alone - I took the photos while I was driving! I wanted to prove to MrT I didn't doze off while I was driving!!

My car. I love it. BUT... (yes there's always a big butt!) murphy's law has once again haunted me, and just before I left (for my 8 hour drive) - the engine malfunction light came on! Can you believe it?!! The car is 18 months old!!! I was sooo $#%^@# mad! I took it to a dealer, waited there for 2 1/2 hrs, apparently there some fault in the exhaust system. I told them I HAD to drive back to Adelaide, that day, so they consulted the head mechanic etc. and said it'd be ok to drive home - but it'd need to be looked at when I got home. The car drove like a dream. No problems. But now I need to get this damn problem fixed, before I can register it here. Argh.

So, photos will come. I must get showered, and ring a dealer here.

Fun with the Kids
8 hr Drive with myself!

The fact that they only got to the 15th instead of the 17th throws us a month later too. Ugh! I guess I'm a whinging old cow too!
