20/09/2014 – One sleep to go! (If you can sleep, just a bit excited). Please remember not to over pack your bags. You should have by now already practiced closing them up. And checking the weight. If you check in is over or even close to 20kgs. Take something out and put it your back pack. This way you will have wiggle room as the scales may be out.

We had an incident with one bag not being in 100% working order. That has been remedied. If you have any issues please text me ASAP.
I’m off to the movies to relax! See you by 4:30/4:45 ( no later) at the Domestic Terminal! Gods blessings.

19/09/2014 – JAPANESE MOBILE NUMBER 080-3418-3033
I have just been emailed this information from the phone provider. Remember to call from Australia drop the first zero … 0011 81 80-3418-3033
Hopefully this number will not be changed by the provider when I go to pick up the phone. Be well, two sleeps!

16/09/2014 – Thank you all for attending tonight’s meeting. Again apologies for the technical problems with the data projector, my sincere appreciation for your patience as we worked though the information session.
