So this is what we did each day and the exciting events of it.
Thursday we arrived at 11:20 with Tiger and everything went smoothly until we had to book in and found that you had to book in 4 hours prior flying. Had to pay 30 dollars each flight. After arriving we went and looked around the shops. Got something to eat. We than went onto Melissa's to see them and the kids. The cousins had a lot of fun playing together. Plus arriving where we were staying we found out some tool decided to back into our HIRE car. Luckily I but the excess down to 300 dollars. Instead of costing us 1000's it only cost us 300 dollars in insurance and because the tool did not leave any note. We were stuck with the cost.
Friday we went down and saw Rob and Kim's new place and met Hank (there dog). We all fell in love with there house and Hank. We than went and did some shopping at Fountain Gate. Which where Kurt found 20 dollar jeans that actually fit his MASSIVE thighs. Plus meant new ugg boots for me as I could not find any I like up in QLD. We also got lost going to Robbie and Kim's. Which happened a lot through our trip and decided we needed a new GPS.
Saturday was the engagement party, We traveled down to Hayfield 2 hrs and 20 minutes away from where we were staying. It was a lovely day to catch up with family. Plus more of getting lost and screaming Tilda.
Sunday we had church, Getting ready for church we found out Matilda had an allergic reaction to something she had eaten and she broke out in hives. Running down to the local chemist to get some medicine quickly for her she was happy again. We than returned to Robbie and Kim's to have dinner and a game of poker (with fake chips). I believe they are still quite annoyed that I kick everyones butt. Also never really playing before they kept telling me I had beginners luck and we all agreed that we will have another game when we all get together next for the wedding. On sunday we were quite relieved not to get lost.
Monday was an early start was we had a early flight to catch. ALTHOUGH seeing this trip with problems each day. We thought how nice it would be to get home and relax and looked forward to warmish weather. We took the car back to budget and filled in some more paperwork. We had some breakfast and went to book into the tiger flight. At the tiger desk we were all booked in when the question was asked how far along I was I said somewhere between 33-34 weeks. They than requested a letter from my doctor stating I am that. So I rang my midwife in QLD and explained. She told me I was pushing it close but there shouldn't be a problem as I was 35 weeks and I was allowed to fly until 36 weeks. The letter came through tiger said No, I can't fly with them as the pilot did not feel safe as there rule states nothing over 35 weeks. Not even with a Dr cert. So with much arguing I end up giving up and deciding there airline is just plain stupid and booked onto a virgin blue flight at 2pm and Kurt and the kids were to leave on the tiger flight at 10:30. Well for one tiger is awful. Kurt was delayed until 1:30 and did not fly into QLD until 4:30. I was delayed an hour on my flight and did not get in until 5:30. It was an extremely long day with 2 tired kids. We did not get home until 7pm that night, We had worked out all up we had done at total of 12 hours of travelling. Which is almost as long as going to the USA.
Even though we had quite a few hiccups it was great to see my family and win at poker.
