We travelled total of 3580 km.
I was once told about the story of the egg..
This particular egg fell down from the 25 th floor of a building, guess what happened to the egg?
This particular egg fell down again, guess what happened to the egg?
This particular egg fell down again. guess what happened to the egg?
Not the correct answer!
This time, the egg was broken in to one million piece..
“Over confidence !!!”
When I took the kids to Yukon, I had planned every little detail.
When I took them to Yellow Knife, I planned a bit
When I took them to NZ, no planning..
It wasn’t really a case of over confidence..I really didn’t have time to plan.
First in the list of disaster is my own doing. This is something my children will never forget and will use it against me till my last breath.
I, the smart one, left my back pack behind in one of the places we stayed. How it happened, I have no idea. It is not like me to actually forget to take my bag. It happened. I then had to stay 2 days in the new place, get the manager of the previous place to courier my bag to the new place. 2 full days with no change of cloths..How much my children laughed!!!
Then, we lost Leppy !! My grand daughter !! ( It is a long story how I am a grand mother to a stuffed animal). But Leppy is an integral part of my youngest child’s life. She is like Mary’s little lamb..goes where ever my child goes.
And the tears !!!!!
There is nothing more traumatic than to hear your child’s heart breaking cries.
What is odd is that, her previous favourite stuffy was a lamby, which her siblings bought for her when they went to NZ for skiing years ago and we lost her in the sky train in Vancouver. Leppy was bought in Vancouver to compensate the lost lamby and was lost in NZ!
Will update more later..have to rush now.
