On Thursday we left England and headed back home to NZ. This entry covers a few days until the 30th July NZ time when we finally got home.

We got up earlyish on the Thursday morning and said goodbye to Aunty Nico who had to go home by train to Nottingham. When Gampa got back from dropping her off we headed off to the airport. After a lot of hunting around we finally found the short term car park and went into the airport. We said goodbye to Gamma and Gampa. It was very sad. 

Then we went through everything that we had to do and waited for the plane to start boarding. We boarded the plain and flew to London. Unfortunately, we had to wait about 6 hours for our next flight. Mum's travel agent had sad that we would be able to go into the star alliance lounge with a complimentary pass but unfortunately the London one didn't let ANZ passengers in. We filled in he time with shopping and eating and hanging around listening to music. We finally got on and settled in ok. We had 12 hours flying before we got to Hong Kong. It was a very bumpy ride and my tooth fell out on the airplane! We only had 2 hours in Hong Kong so it wasn't long before we we on route to Auckland. In Auckland we went to the Koru lounge until we had to board to go to Christchurch. It was really nice - we had lovely food and a hot chocolate. 

When we got to ChCh we got our bags and Robin picked us up. We were home at last! That afternoon Alice and I both fell asleep on the couch. Mum managed to wake me up for dinner but Alice had to miss out! We went to bed at 5:30 and woke up at 5:30 in the morning. Definitely jet lag! But - it was great to be home!

This is the end of our Blog, 

Until next time.....

Lauren, Kate, Hamish and Alice.
