Flight pending

So both the blog and I have been quiet in preparation for the big flight home on Friday. I am flying solo with my 4yo, 2yo and 1yo. I can’t wait to get to Ireland, but I am DREADING the flight. I will, no doubt, have a post about it when I’ve had time to recover! For the moment, regular transmission is interrupted…

    You’ll be packing more toys than clothes to keep them entertained! Which route are you taking – via UK or US?

      Via Amsterdam! I definitely have more toys in the hand luggage than clothes. Probably won’t even use half of them, but always better to be safe than sorry!

        Have a great trip – don’t how you do it! But seeing Japanese women with 3 children under 5 I suppose you would think it was quite normal. Everything seems so under control.
        Have a great Christmas and New Year!

            Did you have a good time? I went to Thailand and Singapore – so very different from Japan and to see if I could work there but Japan wins hands down every time! I visited M&S in Singapore and it was at least double the price but managed to eat the foods I adore including Heinz Tomato Soup. Campbell’s is no comparison!

            I liked Singapore, but Japan wins out for me too. 🙂 And I prefer Heinz too! It was great to see family and friends, but it wasn’t quite the trip I imagined because my youngest took 3 weeks to settle – she wouldn’t leave my side, so those mad nights out dancing on barrels will have to wait for another time. 🙂 Did you have a nice holiday season?

      Aw, thank you 🙂
      Ah a nice cuppa Irish tea; can’t wait. My Mam asked what we’d like for our first supper; I ordered a fry up. I haven’t had one in 2.5 years, Ican almost smell the superquinn sausages. Yummm.

    Three kids solo at those ages is definitely a handful! I hope you’re flying direct?? Definitely be sure to let us know how it went and hope you’re having a great Christmas/New Year!

      I wish there was a direct flight, but no such luck. Going was much easier and enjoyable than expected. Coming back was a little more challenging, but we survived! When I shrug the lag, I hope to post about the whole experience 😉

      It was all totally worth it, though we’d a great time. I hope you enjoyed your Christmas and New Year

        Definitely rest up first, but when you’re back into it, I want to hear what you did to cope with that many children of those ages on a solo indirect flight. I will be taking notes! Glad it went well!
