Against all odds, we are on our way to… COLOUR 2012!!! There were so many things that went wrong this morning as we were trying to make our flight to Sydney! Firstly, our internet was down the night before so I was a bit miffed that I couldn’t send some semi-important emails. On top of that, when we woke up, the power was off! This meant that not only did we have to feel around in the dark or by candle light, our electronically operated garage door wouldn’t open (the manual override was faulty)! However, I was impressed by my mum’s positive attitude to the whole situation. She is normally a bit of a worry wart but she was saying, ‘glad we had packed the night before’, ‘at least we have someone who can pick us up and drive us to the airport instead’.
To take a spiritual spin to it all (which I think you always take to any situation), I saw it as the enemy’s attempt at preventing us from going or at least tempting us to go with a bad attitude. So with that in mind, I did my best to see the funny side of the situation.
Lesson of the day: always finish packing the night before a trip and keep a smile on your dial :-).
Lol, now it’s raining! Hope we get to the airport on time!
