Well, now I'm home and it's good to be here. I slept twelve hours last night, but I'm still feeling pretty out of it. I suppose that's the way it's supposed to be. By tomorrow I hope to feel right as rain. The plan today? I'm going to take my niece thrift store shopping, have dinner with the whole fam-damly and go for a late night swim at the neighbor's pool. It's a good day to be me :)

To get from Brisbane to Paradise, I flew V Australia. It's a relatively new airline and I just wanted to let you all know what I thought of it: I'm a big, fat fan! We got the fare for half of what we paid to fly to the States last time. The povvo class (economy) seats were about the same as any other airline, but the food was good. For dinner we had fabulous pasta, cheese and crackers, wine, salad and a bread roll and while the pasta was slightly overcooked, it actually tasted good. They kept feeding us throughout the flight, bringing around tasty snacks and water. The movie selection was good and the console was user friendly. They're not paying me for this review, but perhaps they should! I spent the flight sitting next to this lovely woman, Margaret, who is a woman travelling for the first time on her own since having children. I hope she enjoyed the flight as much as I did and that she's having a fabulous time in New York!
