It was early yesterday. Alarm clock early. Realising my holiday was over early. But it had to be done. I had to go home again. My sister took me to the bus, which was more or less on time. The bus was a proper coach with leather seats and 'extra legroom'. Remember the last flight I had when I traveled to my sister? Knees wedged between my body and the seat in front of me. If that is what they call extra legroom I didn't want to know anything about their normal legroom.
Anyway, we got to Dublin Airport a bit late, but since I was very early... Because I had upgraded my flight, I was able to use the posh lounge. Nice! And on the flight Brom got to sit next to me again, I got food and drink without having to pay for it (I had already done so of course) and was the first off the plane. Which was late arriving due to fog and icy rain and low visibility in Oslo. Which also meant my next flight would be late. A good thing, because it gave me some extra time. My suitcase had been labeled 'priority' so arrived in the last batch, but it arrived so all was fine.

The flight home I hadn't upgraded and it was packed. When we finally got on it, because it got delayed several times. After arriving my suitcase (still with the priority thingy on) came out second and I could make my way to the taxi rank and go home.
Where it was dark. And it remained dark even after turning on the light. Apparently one of the fuses had blown so the first thing I had to do was locate a new fuse and get everything working again. Miss Oswin then decided she would come out to greet me, although that might have had more to do with me giving her some sweets. Either way, I am happy to be home again. Brom is happy to be home again and Miss Oswin is happy we are home again. Happy all round!
Oh, during our short break my sister and I decided we would not travel to Canada next year (cost mainly). Instead we will travel through middle Europe for two weeks. We have a slight itinerary already, but more will decided in the months to come. Let me just say that Brom is going to need some Lederhosen!!
