This weekend just gone we took a family holiday to Ballarat in Victoria. The purpose of the trip was to visit my good friend Linda and her family. The trip didn’t start well. We ended up missing our flight, by 10 minutes. So at 7.30am in the morning I was trying to figure out what we could do. We ended up rebooting on a 2pm flight, to a different airport. I had to re-arrange our car rental pickup to be the new airport but other than that not too big an issue. Well except for the ~7hours we had to spend in the Sydney domestic airport. With a toddler. Who had been up since 5.30am. I would have predicted the world was going to end with mega tantrums. But she was actually very well behaved. We walked through the shops. We played cards on the floor. We ate airport food. And eventually we got on our new flight.
Ballarat was cold and windy. But it was lovely to see Linda, her family, and see her new home that they have built.
