Out of the floods and into the sunshine

FDEB3F022219AC68176EEC2CF469DEDE.jpgAfter an inauspicious start with a late departure from Portsmouth, the M3 was almost empty (???), Terminal 5 at Heathrow was a dream and the flights were good. Transiting through Singapore airport was very easy and the airport itself was impressive. Unfortunately BA have plumbed the depths with their catering and there was almost nothing, except yoghurt, that was edible ?. Their 'English breakfast' looked like a dog's stool embedded in congealed wallpaper paste. I think it was supposed to be sausage and scrambled egg but who woud have known? I was also very restrained with my in-flight alcohol consumption (despite my reputation) so the 3.5 kilos gained during the last month are beginning to disperse. Hurrah! After 28 hours of travel we touched down in Sydney early and I was through the airport within 20 minutes ??. Unfortunately Becky had to go to work for the day so after we all went out for breakfast Tom and I had a relaxing walk along the beach FE4D41C12219AC6817425ED352DED46D.jpg and then went home to catch up and play a couple of games of dominos. That night Tom cooked us dinner while Becky relaxed after her hard day at the office. FDFFDD512219AC6817136AE28025A3B0.jpgFDF607BC2219AC6817FC9617BBD1FEF7.jpg
It is wonderful to be back in Cronulla and it is HOT, HOT, HOT! No complaints, I am well aware of the weather I have left behind, but I am rather pleased that Tom and Becky live on the corner of the eighth floor FE0B96B22219AC68171E7AD0F2821FD4.jpg and have a constant 'through' breeze. I walked around Cronulla for about two hours today (check out the photos) and my face was so red when I got back I wasn't sure if I was sunburnt (yes I am being sensible and wearing factor 30) or on the verge of a heart attack ?. I think a swim is in order.
