I am a little preoccupied but hugely excited

Well, at last my girl has stopped flitting round the small islands in Indonesia and is about to flit to this large island of Australia and I could not be more happy!! Especially as it is going to be for longer than a 'flit' and she is staying with us till August.... Happy, happy, happy Semi Expat!
Below photograph shows a souvenir she brought back from her travels ..... However, she did have the good grace (!) to let me know before she sent me the photo that it is a henna one.... Otherwise she knows that I would probably have had a mild heart attack.

Oh to be young again!
So, you'll know where I'll be tonight - at Melbourne Airport (with a quick visit first to the Qantas lounge for a restorative and celebratory glass of champagne).

  1. How absolutely wonderful! I know what that feeling is like, we have to wait until October when our youngest will be here for two short, short weeks, and already I am counting the days. Have a lovely time and I hope today flies for you!

  3. Oh, I am happy for you that she is back. As a Momma I breathed a sigh of relief... over her return AND the henna!

  4. Knowing my daughter, she would get the henna tattoo and not tell us it was fake until we passed out! She loves the mischief and she's nearly 12 (going on 20 in her mind). God help me when she is actually 20!
    You must be thrilled to have her back.

  5. Enjoy your time with your beautiful daughter. I am sure she will be so happy to see you, even if she doesn't let you know that right away:).

  6. Yippee! Welcome home to your gorgeous daughter! I expect we won't be seeing you for a couple of days while you catch up on all of her news and help her scrub off that henna tattoo!

    Best wishes,
    Natasha.

  10. How beautiful your daughter is! It is great for you both to have a long time together. Thank god, the tattoo will wear off. Luckily my daughters have never spoken of wanting tattoos for themselves.

  14. Yay. So glad you're back together. I'm so jealus she has a waist. Did she get mine, cause I've been looking for it for a couple of years.

    I myself often get a henna tattoo (though maybe on my ankle or wrist, not on my torso) in the summer. Why not!

Am happy to report now that she is here safely - as I type still tucked up in bed (it's 8.30am here) Flwrjane - your comment cracked me up (and her too - she said she's sending you some waist back!!) x
