Okay Mum, I Made it Safely

Last night my Mum asked me to post on my blog that I made it safely to Claire's in Jacksonville Florida. This is the post Mum! I'm here, I'm safe, and I've given Claire a super-big hug! What a relief it is to see Claire and know that she's doing okay!

I have to say my trip down here was a little interesting. I can tell you that this girl (body) doesn't do 4am very well! Then when I got to the airport, waiting to check-in for my flight to Detroit the computer system for Northwest Airlines went down for all of Eastern US!!! They had a plane load of grumpy passengers at 5am... as they couldn't check anyone in, the staff was starting to do it manually when the system came back up. I was surprised that they got us all checked in and off the ground in time. The bonus to this, they waived the baggage fee for all passengers that saved me a few bucks. Oh yeah, word of advice, don't sit in the very last row of the plane... very noisy!!!!



I got to Detroit on time, with a little to spare so I walked around the terminal... big mistake! I came across a Mrs. Fields and I've heard all about their cookies. I was actually okay until I saw they had this chocolate/peanut butter square and caved in. That was a lot of points, and oh so tasty! We were late getting off the ground in Detroit due to a line-up on the tarmac which but my arrival 30 minutes late.



After dropping off my stuff Claire and I met up with her parents for lunch at Ted's Montana Grill. I had the most yummy bison burger! We followed lunch with a stroll through a couple of shops, I got to hit Jo-Ann's but only came away with a few fat quarters (yes Mum, I was thinking of you!).

This evening has just been relaxing, talking stitching, stitching, and a walk once it cooled down outside.

Have a great time with Claire. Never sit at the front row of an airplane too as there is never enough space for you to stretch your legs.

I would love to see a picture of this yummy bison burger! :0))
