Sunday 21st December 2008 is a Special Day. First thing - to Auckland Airport, post haste. Ian, Nikki and the boys are due to land this morning after the long haul from UK and all four grandparents want to be there for the arrival.
The screens showed the plane had landed, then after what seemed an age, people came pouring through the arrivals gate ...and let's say they weren't the first through.
But we were delighted to see them. Jet lag seemed lotally lacking in the younger generation, who played happily during the rest of the day.
But even the stalwart Ted was struck down ...mid pizza!
And so to bed.
