I’m ready to go
…cause I’m leaving on a jet plane
Don’t know when I’ll be back again.
I am heading to New Zealand for a long weekend as one of cousins is getting married. I arrive in Hamilton at midnight tonight and arrive back in Brisbane about 7am on Tuesday morning.
Mum, Pabbi, Grandad, Aunty Margaret and Uncle Max leave in the morning and fly back on Sunday arvo as they all that thing called work. I don’t have that thing yet. I am also flying on a different airline, which means I am about to go pack some snacks as I am not going to pay the prices for snacks on the plane.
Not only will this be my first adult wedding, it will also be the first time that I have been to NZ since I went with my grandparents in 1994 (over half a life ago). I will also not only get to meet my cousin’s bride to be but also his brother’s wife as I was in Germany when they got married in 2003.
I have also made my aunt two little m’henchas, one the traditional almond and orange blossom water and the other pistachio and rose water. They look so cute. I was pretty close to breaking off a bit for arvo tea yesterday as they just smelled so gorgeous.
Well my time is up and now I must head off to the airport.
