just keep swimming...just keep swimming...

I know it has been ages. I have been and am still doing assignments although at the moment I am on another 3 week prac. - so i am wearing ironed clothes for the next 3 weeks!! Hubby had to go to Europe for 2 weeks - thank god for Grandma and other fabulous friends to farm my kids out to.

A message like this was heard at Melbourne Airport on Sunday - "Qantas would like to apologize for the delay to our flight to Singapore. The captain's licence has expired and he is unable to fly the plane. We are currently looking for another person to fly the plane! Again we apologize for the delay and thank you for your understanding"

It is true - I kid you not!

Sheesh, Qantas can't win a trick at the moment! Hey, I was at Melbourne Airport on Sunday too. (Not in the international section though)

Hmmmm...

This word "ironed".. it is new to me... you say that you do this to clothes? Well I'll be a monkey's uncle!

Have a brilliant time with the kids during your prac. I miss classroom's full of imagination and excitement... but not enough to go back!

You will get there - and it will all be worth it!
I think you're doing a fantastic job, and I'm a little in awe...

And I am so never flying Qantas again!! They really seem to have dropped the ball!

Just when I thought it was safe to get on a Qantas plane again! I am so surprised they gave that message - it's so ridiculous it must be true!
