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…

      Aw thank you and very happy holidays to you and yours too. πŸ™‚

  1. 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!

      1. 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!

          A belated happy Christmas and New Year to you too!

          1. 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. πŸ™‚ 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. πŸ™‚ Did you have a nice holiday season?

      2. ok – I just got it! Via Amsterdam – that’s how you manage with 3 kids under 5!!!

      Aw, thank you πŸ™‚
      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.

  2. Good luck ! Take as much as you can to keep them entertain πŸ™‚ ( and pepper spray any rude personn who might complain huhu!)

      Haha! Pepper spray – good idea, might need it!!

      Thank you! Hopefully it will be one of those cases where it turns out to be MUCH better than expected. Have a great Christmas and New Year πŸ™‚

  3. That’s some journey! I wish you all the best on your journey and a wonderful holiday in Ireland, with family I presume. How lovely for you all.:)

      Thank you. We had a wonderful time indeed. I hope you did too?γ€€I hope 2014 is a great year for you. πŸ™‚

      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 πŸ˜‰

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

      1. 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!
