End of 2008

Yeah, I totally steal people's blog ideas, but mainly the end of year posting is reminding me that I haven't posted in an age (or 2 weeks, whatever).

In case you wanted to know, Beau and I have safely arrived back in Wellington NZ. Christmas went smoothly and well and now we are in the throws on New Years visiting.

Beau has work and housing organised for until the end of May. It is... in Palmerston North. Hmmm. I shall be looking for work. We'll see what happens.

Rather than do goals for the New Year, I'll do goals for the next couple of months.

1) Unpack our suitcases
2) Obtain a car
3) Obtain a laptop

Three is enough, right?

See you in the New Year!!

You are all awesome.

Airline did sort us out with next flight and hotel rooms. They would also probably have refunded purchases of things like undies/toiletries etc, but we just couldn't be bothered jumping through those hoops.

Our luggage would presumably have been checked for bombs on the dublin-london flight?

It was really good seeing drowninghail, Beau and I weren't up to more than one (mellow) visitor, we were both wrecked from staying up late saying goodbyes, getting up early and driving to from Cork to Dublin, having ticket issues at Dublin, getting to London and racing to plane to not make it and then line up a lot to sort out new ticket and hotel room. We are now in Anaheim and have already been to disneyland once. Again today!

We really loved our time in Ireland and europe and we wants more! We hope/plan to go back in the future.

Feeling a bit tired and grumpy after staying up late bye-byeing people, then getting up early to make a plane that was delayed by an hour making us miss our connecting flight to LA.

Yes, we are still in "Europe" we're in London at a hotel near Heathrow. Both tired and hungry and Beau has no clothes as his were all checked in and they wouldn't give us our luggage.

Now, to use our travel insurance!

We're leaving Ireland today. On our way home via LA. Our laptop broke hence the lack of posting for a while.
