It’s 1.20am and I’m on standby from 6am to 12 pm. Pleasepleasepleasepleaaaaaase do not activate me for any flights. If everything goes smoothly, i’ll be off to Melbourne on Monday morning for ONE WHOLE WEEK! I am so thankful that my flight to Shanghai has been removed and 3 additional off days has been given, in addition to the 4 days off that I originally had. 7 days would make my very long and arduous trip more worthwhile.
As much as I hate to admit, it has become a monthly routine, jetting off on a 16 hour journey to Melbourne to visit The Boyfriend. It is an expensive, time-consuming, and back-breaking (economy-class seats) journey. But oh well. The perils of long distance relationships. We have been long distance for 1 year and 2 months, and I must say that we have done pretty well. No major fights so far. At least, not that I remember!
Here’s a photo of us after our first flight with him as the pilot.
