after we disembarked

My Melbourne flight

I boarded early – mum’s walking stick is a great help. (in more ways than one)

I was early on board

Instead of TV viewing I bought myself ‘Michael Parkinson’s Autobiography’. I really enjoyed the 4 or so pages I read before I disembarked and left the book behind. I wonder if they have found it? (I wrote my phone number in it, and I will be back at the airport in a week. Too much to ask?)

Mum always said never buy books at the airport.

    Hey Jane – this walkabout looks fab fun! If I was you MOTH would need to put a tracking device on me to keep tabs! Will stop by more frequently to monitor your progress.
