Was I a little uptight this morning to read Qantas had cancelled all flights until the stinking volcanic ash kindly departs our airspace?  Seeing how I take off for Paris tomorrow ‘n all?  God yes! Seriously, as if the day before I fly around the world isn’t stressful enough (Finish 7 design illustrations; Mow the lawns; Organise insurance; Empty the kitty litter; Admit to Mum I’m actually going away – check check check check check), let’s throw in an element of gee-maybe-you-won’t-be-going-anywhere-anyway.

The one positive should my arse not be on that flight is that I’d be able to attend the opening of the Illustrators Australia A3 show this Friday night 17th June, where I will proudly have 2 prints hanging on the wall.  You can check out all the prints online, or come for a good look and tipple in person.  Professional gallery-quality prints of the many and varied artworks can be purchased for the barganza price of $125.  You can probably even purchase on line.  Nothing not to love about that.

But back to me.  Or actually, back to my pre-flight checklist which seems only to be growing, much like the contents of my suitcase.  Oh god I hate packing!  Pas de panique – breathe…..

Oh thanks!
Am finally safely in the Qantas lounge soaking up the luxury before heading to the land of sardines for the next 24 hours.
Only one return trip to the house before reaching the airport(I forgot my money, small detail).
I believe I’ve forgotten every word of French I ever learned but hey, tant pis!

FARK!! I missed you before you left!! FFFAAARRRRKKKK!!!!
I am sorry – I am a bad friend – I just left a pathetic message on your phone.
Anyway – I hope that you have a magnificent holiday. I will be in all the galleries with you in spirit.
I can’t wait to hear all about it when you get home. I hope you find yourself a hot French guy too.

Miss you already.

Heeeey! No way are you a bad friend – I was completely under the pump (for a change) before I left so was doing a pretty good job of “bad friend” myself… Anyhoo, the plan is to blog daily so you can keep track of my attempts to have wild adventures; ). About to go for run to the Eiffel tower, will think of you in the galleries! Axx
