Summer holiday in England – part 1


Hello dear friends!

Apologies for the brief lull in activity – I’m about to make up for lost time, so bear with me.
I’ve been away, back to Blighty, to the Motherland to see my children.
Doesn’t seem that long ago that they were here in Perth with me.
Time flies.

Anyway, without further ado..

Flight out was annoying. I had booked with Malaysian Airlines before they had their 2 accidents, but I decided to fly with them still. Unfortunately, lots of people didn’t, and when I got to Kuala Lumpur, I discovered they had cancelled the London flight I was supposed to be on and merged it with the next one, 10 hours later so they had at least one full flight.

That meant overnighting in a (admittedly quite nice) hotel just outside the airport and getting up at 5:30am to get back to the airport and catch the next flight. I had, however, managed to get a window seat on the upper deck of the Airbus A380, which has a ton of room. So that was good.

The rest of the trip was uneventful really – collected the kids – was SO good to see their smiling faces! That’s one of the best parts of any trip to see them – they are so happy to see me. I guess that’s a good thing 🙂

Back to Kent, the next day we got up and went to the shops, had some lunch out and then went out for some fun.

We walked out and up the hill to the village, first to the shop for some treats and then to the park to play.  They may be getting bigger, but they still love to play!

The next day, we went swimming and then to our favourite place – Oldbury Woods.  Ella found a rope swing and that was the focus of the whole afternoon.  We walked right around the woods which took a while as the woods are quite large, but it was great fun, finding decent sword-sticks and having battles along the way.

    • yup – sure did – was awesome to be with the kids. Malaysia airlines were ok – just the glitch on the way out (which I need to claim some compensation for still) – but I guess you can’t blame them for trying to save money by shaving flights if they are not being used..

    • Hey Frank 🙂 I’m very proud to be their father, they are fine children who will become incredible adults. And my daughter is a danger to the male of the species, I can already see that *eep*!
