Well today was no fun, I got to Sydney airport to fly home and the flight was delayed, then delayed again, then we changed gates, then the announcement was that we didn't have a gate and would announce when we had one, then it was cancelled outright and they stuffed us all into vacancies of other flights. And we landed at a different airport to the one we were supposed to land at so I had to catch a giant taxi-fare to pick up my car from the correct airport. Phew! What a day!
I was supposed to get home at about 3pm and it was more like 8.30pm at night!!
OK, that's my winge for the day hehehe
Yes, the fires, Sybil thanks for your thoughts. Everyone has been affected in one way or another. I work in a suburb that's sort of half way between my house and the closest fires (which are hugely close to the main city anyway) so everyone at work has spent the past week on the phone following people up. Some still don't know where people are and others are trying to console their kids who think all their school mates are gone. And they probably are.
I didn't know how many people I knew from country areas until this happened and I know a ton. Some are ok, some I was worried about, some have lost their properties and their extended family members ... but... NONE have lost THEIR lives. I'm so thankful for that. If the two major fires meet, I wont be so confident but at the moment and with all the effort that's going into it, it looks like that has been averted.
And another good thing, I think I've cried all I can about it so I'm spending a great deal of time thinking about the good that people are doing right now, and not so much about any loss.
Anyway I'm still lc and working on my motivation for change. I think I have a bad body image - for some reason I seem to think I look just fine when maybe I don't. LOL Typical...
