It's nice to have a few days away, but it's also good to return to familiar surroundings (and internet access at a respectable speed)!
Of course there are a few little issues: the flight was slightly delayed (not a big deal, I guess); charges at the airport long term car park have increased (AND there's now a 2% surcharge on credit card payments ...not sure if there's a debit card option?); and there were NO messages on the answering machine! The latter is a bit of a blow to the ego. Didn't anyone miss us? (Just joking coz obviously everyone was reading this blog and knew we weren't here!)
EDIT - it seems that, had we been travelling a little later, we might have been caught up in more extensive delays: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-07-20/virgin-cancels-12-flights-after-check-in-system-fault/4832744
