Sad

Ok I know it's been awhile - but really I have been super busy flitting from one end of the country to the next in a bid to pack as much into the month I had here. This week was supposed to be about sorting out my suitcases (with all the Vegemite I have to take back for Amanda) and saying goodbye. But of course the plans of mice and men are apt to go astray and sadly there is no possible way for me to leave the country- thanks to the Chilean Volcanic ash situation. The upshot is that Aaron and I are stuck here till the 20th of July - barring another eruption. So upsetting not only for me and Aaron but also Mark and Amanda who are rattling around our big house. Poor things.
So on to happier things - it has been wonderful being with all the family especially the newest addition - she is of course the most beautiful baby in all the world. It was hard saying goodbye to her the other day (oh just thought - maybe I could go and see her again - big smile now). Of course with the advent of Skype it will be possible to talk to her everyday so it's not so bad.

I will post a bit of a rundown of the highlights of my trip at a later stage - all that is in my head at the moment are the lowlights!

Little update - our travel agent is working hard to get us on a earlier flight - here's hoping that we can go on the 9th of July instead - I will keep you posted.
