This will be short. I am posting from bed - the first time EVER in the history of my owning a computer. A lovely parcel from NZ arrived this morning - with GLEE DVD for me and of course I couldn't wait until my actual birthday to open it so have had to watch the pilot already and perhaps a couple of pre-bedtime episodes. It must appeal to a lot of people - that wanting to be good at something, especially singing. So many of us out there who think we can sing and that the only reason we haven't gone platinum is because we keep forgetting agents don't come to the shower - or the car. Those are my favorite singing places. Those and all over the house in general when I am cleaning or cooking.
Took the kids to kindy this morning and the head of the pre-school was waiting for me. She explained that she did not in fact witness the punch scene - but she did see the tussle before hand and the girl crying and just presumed it was because she got the card taken off her. The girl's mum rung her up though and all was revealed. She asked if from next lesson we could not sit in a circle. I'm a fan of circle sitting. Beats rows anyway. She suggested that a circle puts the kids in very close proximity to each other and is hard for them to concentrate without the pushing and shoving. So next time they will stay at their tables and we can use the big room next door to run around mooing like cows and roaring like lions. All good.
I had an absolute disgusting weekend food wise. All yummy deep fried, chocolatey and alcoholic goodness mind you. Have big reservations for the scales being nice to me this weigh day though.
Am having big dilemmas about tickets home.
JETSTAR - really only a good deal if you already live in Tokyo or Kansai and don't have to add domestic tickets. This option will only cost us slightly less than KoreanAir and that leaves straight from Fukuoka - and we get fed.
KOREAN AIR - 480,000 yen for five of us return. Five hour wait in Seoul on the way and a night (free) on the way back. I thought I had enough airpoints for one ticket but nope - this trip's mileage would give me and Ryu a free trip home next time though. Need to hook us all up on the family plan.
AIR NZ - 560,000 yen by the time we add domestics. It is direct but I am having trouble finding the same domestic flight I got last time - that got me there almost exactly two hours before the flight. Can't find any JAL or ANA flights now that would get us there in time. None in September anyway. They don't even have their October schedule out yet.
THAI - what NO 1 Travel came up with - same price as Korean air and I wouldn't choose them over Korean air because the flight distance is longer, I have never been to the bangkok international airport and I'm just chicken shit cause it's a new route.
Decisions, decisions. Probably Korean Air - at least they have that space half way down the plane near the toilets where you can stand and rock a grizzly child - unlike Air NZ which was very narrow.
Ooooh, can hear hub home.
Should go and welcome home and heat up his dinner.
PS - I am joking.
He's an hour later than he said he would be. His dinner is waiting cold on the table and I'm sure he can figure out how to use the microwave on his own.
