…she rested! No exercise today but instead I could sleep in. Fine, except from about 6am onwards I was forever checking my watch for the time, wondering whether it was time to get up yet. Still it was nice not to have to get up and get ready for a run, the gym, cycling, swimming, etc.
As is traditional (and I’m all for tradition when it counts!) we went to St Ali’s for breakfast before I had to leave for the airport. Again I ordered the delicious granola, as it is something I don’t usually have at home. We saw Red Symons while we were there. Actually we have seen him there on several occasions so obviously he has good taste as well :)
Then it was back to the apartment to finish packing my ever-expanding suitcase. I was absolutely certain my case was going to be overweight (oh I so know that feeling) and I even went on-line to see if I could purchase additional weight. However this has to be done at least 3 hours before the flight and so I was too late. I had resigned myself to paying extra for my shopping sins.
So imagine my surprise and delight when checking in my luggage to discover that it had come in under the 23kg. Omg, there is a god! Thank goodness it had been too late to purchase the additional weight, as I didn’t need it. Then while waiting for my flight I spent the time at Watermark books and cafe – my kind of heaven. The combination of books and coffee is irresistible, and I discovered they also sell chocolate, so of course I bought a block of salted caramel chocolate….for Mr N.
There weren’t too many passengers on the flight to Canberra. The pilot is his address said to treat it like our own private jet!
Now I’m home, have been to the hairdressers, grocery shopped, and unpacked. Already its beginning to feel like I’ve never been away.
Tomorrow: the plan is to run early then son #1 is taking me out for breakfast. Later in the day I may cycle.
