SAMI'S COLOURFULWORLD

Good-bye and Hello

On Saturday I pick up my husband from the airport. He is coming home after having worked and lived in Adelaide (South Australia) on a project for the last 3 years.
We had 3 years of weekends together, other short visits from me to Adelaide or from him to Perth, many many frequent flyer points earned, but a lot of loneliness too of course!
Hopefully he will now be based in Perth again for his next project.

But tomorrow (Thursday 31st) I say good-bye for a short while to my son and daughter in law, as they depart on a 3 week visit to Portugal to visit family on both sides. It will be the first time my family meets Sara, the new member of the family.
May they have a safe flight! 

These photos were taken on one of my many visits to the airport to pick up my husband, while I wait for his call to say he has landed...
They have a viewing platform and very handy parking lot, a 5 min. drive to both the domestic and international airport terminals.

There's always lots of keen plane spotters with their long lenses photographing every plane that lands or takes off and some of them even taking notes of the details of every plane.




Another domestic flight landing



These were taken with my mobile, a couple of weeks ago while I sat waiting in the carpark

  2. Oh yay-yay-yay, I so know what you went through, great it´s over and hopefully Perth it is now!
    Ingo loves to see the (little) planes land at our research airport - he´d sure be happy to see that in Perth!
    Well - to a new chapter in life! :-)

    1. Thanks Iris, yes a couple living apart for years is not fun! Ingo would love this airport lookout as he could see most of the big planes land and take-off (you can just see one of the runways)

  3. Together is always better than a simple "weekend relationship". Iris and me did it for 13 years and we become ill, at leased physical problems. May you have a good (your best) time in Perth and we could probably meet next year (soon) in February.
    And tell your son and his wife make a trip to Wolfenbüttel! Perhaps I have the answer why his birth giving suicide-doc! (He visited the local distillery, where sometimes drinking is for free)
    No, wishing them a good trip to Europe!
    And once again: Enjoy the strong winter (hail storms, blizzards etc.) in Perth and intimate togetherness.

    1. Thanks for your visit Ingo. Michael will not have time to go to Germany, they are only going for 3 weeks and a lot of family to visit, a wedding, a christening... Maybe next time! My daughter who now lives in Amsterdam said she would visit the birthplace one of these days and will let Iris know. Hail, storms, blizzards - hopefully those don't come very often, we had a severe storm 2 weeks ago that affected a couple of suburbs, luckily mine wasn't affected!

  6. Happy to hear your husband is home Sami, it couldn't have been easy for you both. I'm sure your son and wife will have a fab holiday. Aimee is away for a couple of weeks too, Melbourne, the snow, Canberra and lastly Sydney where she'll have a week with my son, wife and new granddaughter, can't wait to skype when she's there, lucky thing :)

  7. It must have been like one long honeymoon :) I'm sure it wasn't Sami- washing and ironing for his return every weekend. Enjoy your time together!

    1. Yes Joanne, weekends together were spent mowing lawn, fixing up the house (him) and cooking and cleaning (me).
