Default YetiBlog® - the end of a very hard day

Thomas drives us towards Bad Nauheim. I am half dead. Haven't slept on the flight, I'm 4.5 hours behind India time, cold and my arms hurt.

We reach Bad Nauheim and empty most of the stuff at the brother's home and the remainder at the sister's. The washing machine has destroyed us. The furniture feels like it got heavier in the truck.

I feel sleepy, horrid, cold and terrible. Finally, last stop home. We will be staying with Jenny's sister's family. It is midnight and everyone is asleep. I'm scowling all the way from the car. One look at the door and I break into a smile seeing what the kids have stuck up on the door before going to bed.

It has been the longest day of my entire trip. Goodnight everyone.

Amazing Sam, loved every bit of it reading in one groggy eye after getting up from sleep! Very nicely put. Loved the economy version!

Sam,

That "Welcome Sam" sign seals everything and says a lot, doesn't it ?

I feel if kids accept you with open hearts like this - then nothing else matters.

Congratulations friend.

ps - continue with the story and finish it before you land here, you will go underground once you land

Hope you & Jenny had a Merry Christmas. I can totally understand all the packing since we just packed our entire home and belongings just last week. Wish you both all the very best, with the move, especially to you Jenny, as I can imagine it will be emotional on so many levels. All the best to both of you, from the Allenby family.

Excellent. Is more story left.
I understand that you are going to come back to India.

Just one request. Complete the story quickly.

Also I noted the Wagon R being used at airport. This was very nice to see.

Oh-so-dodgy to have a schedule depending on a flight arrival time! Even in Germany!

A belated Happy Christmas to you guys and 'your family' there
