Home Sweet Home

For 1 of Us

rain 10 °C

Home Sweet Home - it is always so great to go away, but it is also great to finally get home. My dog Dougal was very happy to see me.
A bit of a wake up to come from sun & very little rain to the downpours at home. At least the temp of 10 deg is OK.
I'm a little concerned about the other 3 making it home - I am sure they will get lost in the Burmuda Triangle with all the magnets one of the girls has bought. I reckon they are going to screw with the aircrafts navigation. I guess we will know at 1.00am tomorrow.
Excess luggage could be the other problem - they were 10kg over but once they took out a bag weighing 3kg, they got let off with the 7kg. I was 1.4kg over & had to pay $10. That was Perth to Sydney so we will wait & see if they can sweet talk their leg from Sydney home.
Well I think I need to lie down for a bit - really tired.

On Land

Freemantle Markets

We have landed and feeling unstable on our feet from time to time. What an amazing cruise we have all had - had an absolute ball. Only really sad moment was when our lovely coffee which was purchased in Malaysia was taken off us at customs. We took our cases back to hotel and then hopped on the train and returned to Freemantle had a look around the market - we couldn't buy anything as we are all overweight (cases included). We briefly visited the prision then onto the Brewery and had a lovely time over a beer, cider, kangaroo kebabs and nachos - you have guessed it we share everything now. We know each other inside out and what our bodies are going to do before we do!
We are off to the Kings Park today and we have been lucky enough to be escorted around the city tomorrow with one of our many friends we meet on board. We have many many stories, photos etc to share (only if interested) on our return.
Nick, Wendy and Bonnie "Happy Birthday" to you all, we have been thinking of you (a little).
See you all later in the week - this will be our last blog as we will be blubbering on Wednesday.

We are in our final days of sailing. The weather has been a little rougher than for the rest of the time on the ship. This however has not spoilt our time and we are still managing our cocktails and food intake.
We are completing our to do list - however we will miss the Dr Bob and Bill W meeting.
There are three pieces of art coming home now - more space is needed on the walls.
We had a fantastic western night and put our line dancing lessons into good practice then to the night club after to complete our evenings entertainment getting to bed around 1 ish. We didn't need to walk the next day.
Formal evening followed and we dressed up for the last time. Got good pictures of our dinner table companions.
Couple of wines, cocktails finished the evening with a New Years Eve Party.
Sailing completed - we are going to miss the bedroom service, food - four course silver service dinners, special bar service - the Choy Special and the luxuries offered on the ship.
We have made many great friendships and hope to keep in touch.
Our credit cards have had a major hammering - please no one open the bills until we get home. They were accepted - we think before disembarking.
