Guess Where I Am??



I've been gone. Out of the country. Off on an adventure. Did you miss me?

Bet you'll never guess where I am?

I am sitting in the Air NZ Business Class lounge at Melbourne Airport.
That's right. I said Business Class.

My husband, may God forever bless him, whisked me off on a surprise trip to Melbourne, Australia. We travelled in style. We lodged in a historic Victorian Hotel. One of those ones with a doorman in a top hat. We took in a Show. We walked and ate and walked and ate.

Three nights of kid-free bliss. {God bless Grandma. We're getting her some Duty free}

So. Here I sit. Waiting for our flight, tapping away on the keyboard in Business Class. Tee Hee.

And guess what else? The day that I left my very first article appeared printed in a magazine.

So guess what I wrote on my immigration form? (You know, the question where they say, Occupation...?)
I put, "WRITER".

WRITER!

Cos I got published. In a real magazine.

Full of good vibes here, I am. In Business Class (Oh. Did I already mention that??? Sorry. I hate to go on. NO I DON'T! I am so blinkin ecstatic to be travelling Business Class I am like a little kid in a sweet shop!!!)

Anyhoo, any second now they will call our flight and we will go and get on the plane and head back home.
Home to our lovely kiddies.
Home to our Christmas Tree.
Home to our lovely gorgeous beautiful country.
And tomorrow, or maybe the next day I will show you my photos.
Of Business Class.
Tee Hee.

Business class - wow!! How awesome!! While we were flying to and from Israel, I often looked wistfully at those business class people enjoying their leg room and comfort up the front of the plane. SO happy for you! Enjoy.
