Day 1 As most of you already know the travellers, me, Lisa 43, DH, Scott, DD16, and twins DS13 The day started pretty early, we were up by 6:30am, we were to be picked up at 9:00am, but i really wanted the house to be ship shape before we left,(why, i dont know, ) everyone was super excited, dd's friend turned up at 7:30 and they went for a milkshake, because he wanted to see her before she left, (just friends) this sent me into a panic a bit, but they werent gone long, he had to get the school bus. Anyway our driver turned up promptly at 9 and i mopped my way to the front door. Traffic wasnt too bad and it took just on an hour to get to the airport. Time went surpisingly quick and soon we were boarding. The flight left just on two and was pretty uneventful, food was good, although i had made the mistake of orderring a fruit platter for dd, not realising she wouldnt get anything else. It was a long, long flight, but we all know that!
