Well, we finally got home after a very long day at 5.30pm. We had been awake since 10am Qld time the day before. Neither Robyn nor I got too much sleep on the flight from Singapore. Just as our beginning was eventful so was our return home. Qantas left one of our cases in Sydney and another they didn't unload and sent up to Mackay.
We finally got them today after some rather heated phone calls. Qantas had rung us at 10.30am to say one of their people would be delivering it within the hour. 12.30pm came , still no cases. Rang Qantas who said that it was being delivered by Zippy Couriers. Now, as we had 2kg of swiss chocolate in one of the cases we rang the couriers to ask when it would be delivered. Not for 2 hours they said, they have to go to Yeppoon via Emu Park. We told them about the chocolate and asked them if they could deliver it first as it would be sitting in the back of a hot van for 2 hours before it got to us. No way they said, in fact they got a bit stroppy about it. Zippy couriers sent it back to Qantas as they wouldn't take any responsibility for any damage. We rang Qantas to let them know what was happening, by this time we were getting pretty angry about the whole situation and told them we wanted them within the hour. Anyway, Qantas put them in a taxi and had them delivered.
So, here we are with a mountain of washing, trees blown down whilst we were away with the big wet (only old dead or dying wattles) so there is much to be done........
A great holiday nevertheless :-)
Signing off for this trip, but watch this site for future trips :-)
