I’m off! Well, I’m sat at the boarding lounge at Brisbane airport waiting for my boarding gate to open so we can all shuffle into a tin tube and share our CO2 for 13 hours.
But I have a plan – one that has a proven track record: dose myself up, have a meal and a glass of plane red, sleep for 11 hours and then wake up, reasonably refreshed, in LA, ready to do Wednesday all over again.
(It’s weird to think that I take off at 10 am on Wednesday and land at 6 am yours n the same day. Time travel for sure. But I think the universe will get it back in spades when I come home.)
Separating myself from the family for so long was hard, and it’s not something I really ever enjoy. Oscar was as brave as he could be, and I was the first to break down. He saw the chink in my resolve and pleaded for me not to go. Disappointing him was a hard thing to do, and leaving him and Rae behind for do information isn’t something I want to have to do again.
Footnote: the beautiful sunny weather we’ve enjoyed in Queensland ended its winning streak today, and Autumn arrived with cold win.
