    Soiree was fabbo. I only wish we could have stayed longer and seen the fencing exhibition (with swords, not planks of wood and barbed wire). *That's* why we pay those huge school fees...the kids were amazing, not just ours, all of them and they displayed such happy confidence. While things were being moved around before the next act came on one of the teachers asked a boy - he was ten or so - to read us jokes from a joke book, which he did, off the cuff and he was confident enough to make them funny. Totally unrehearsed. Props to him. We didn't stay for the more advanced stuff, but we got to see the grade 2s do both music (they sang Waltzing Matilda with school-specific lyrics) and dance (they were chess pieces on a board).

    Small boy was a bear in a toyshop who came to life at night for his dance. The preps sang a song - AND PLAYED INSTRUMENTS to a song that explained the notes. The grade 1s did Peter and the Wolf, which was brilliant, as their dance. Then for their song they did banana phone, complete with bananas.

    GENIUS.

    I often say 'yiff-yiff' when hugging husband, but so far he remains unconvinced about the wonders of furries.

    I'm here! Small boy had *the* worst attack of croup ever on the ferry - after 24 hours' flying and then train-tube-train. It was terrifying and lasted for over an hour. He was screaming on the ferry that he was going to die and couldn't breathe. Fabulous. We had people staring at us and tutting. A crew member asked me to get him to keep it down. Boy, did I lose it with him.

    My dad is both better and worse than expected - haven't seen him in person since he had a very severe stroke - and mum has also aged some since our last visit. It's hard watching them diminish.

    Anyway. Eating has gone to hell and exercise has increased - I carried small boy up the cliff path on my shoulders this morning and we're off to look at a castle shortly.

    Normal service will resume in two and a half weeks.

    Glad to see that you have survived the trip and arrived relatively intact. Enjoy your stay, and looking forward to tales of adventure whence service returns to normal!

    ^ I'll echo what he said, have a good one!

    Wouldn't have minded being the ol' fly on the wall at the crewmans ear bashing!

    Went, solo, to visit various family graves. My maternal grandmother appears in two places: with her husband and brother in law and then, again, with her own brother. I remember standing by both spots, but for her I remember we were on the one at the outer edge: with her brother. Why?

    Grandmother thought husband's plot was for three (depth, not width). BiL was supposed to go in with his mother, but on the day the grave flooded, so...put him in with his brother, my grandfather.


    Several, many, years pass. Great uncle dies, gets his own - double (depth) plot. Several years later, my grandmother dies, but it is discovered that her husband's grave is only a double, not a treble as was thought. So, she gets stuck in with her brother and an honourable mention on her husband's grave.

    I paid my respects. I wonder who will get the spot with my great grandma. M&D want to be cremated...

    I'm back in Australia. More thoughts will follow - there's been a lot to unpack (literally and metaphorically).

    Welcome back, badger! Can't wait to hear stories!
    I have a mantra that I have spouted for years... "If I eat right, I feel right. If I feel right, I exercise right. If I exercise right, I think right. If I think right, I eat right..." Phil-SC
