    Surely calling other people bitches goes completely against feminism?!?!

But she doesn’t wear pants… Or anything hardly… Someone needs to give her a slap and tell her feminism is when women are listened to even when they wear clothes…!

    Travel Video - Hobart

    Travel Video – Hobart

    So one of the things I was most excited about with our Hobart holiday was filming it & making some videos with the footage. I’m a sucker for good travel video & I really need to practice my skills!

    I wanted to get one main holiday video edited before we headed off to New Zealand (where we are now!) and I did. It finished uploading just before we left, yay!

    This video is just a highlight mashup…

    Love how Lior went to sleep tonight. Reached over and grabbed Eli’s hand and fell asleep holding it. <3

    Last Sunday our family went to the peace rally in Brisbane. I finally got some photos off my computer to share on instagram and wanted to say how proud I am of Luke. He led hundreds of people in a prayer for Israel, and I have never been prouder! He petitioned YHWH beautifully. :) #peace

    So after our huge flight from Hobart to Melbourne there was not much time left to see any of Melbourne. We picked up our hire car (this time we used red spot, and we were really impressed with them), and headed down south to meet up with Luke’s Aunty, Uncle, Cousin & Pa. 

    Pa Carbis was so happy to see the boys when he walked in! HUGE smiles from everyone, even Eli who was only 1 month old last time he saw Pa. But Eli is not one to miss an opportunity to smile! As always we felt so loved & welcomed at Greg & Carol’s and enjoyed yummy food and warm company! Eli particularly loved Uncle Greg (or maybe it’s the other way around?!). Either way, they were inseperable.

    Lior loved playing oven kit dress-ups with Carol (Aunty Eyes – Luke’s tradition from when he was a little kid), and both loved cuddles and upside down time with Pa.

    After that we headed back to our hotel near the airport, and the next morning we had an uneventful flight back to the Sunshine Coast!

    Dear Eli :: Eight Months

    Dear Eli :: Eight Months

    8 month photo project

    Dear Eli,

    Gosh this is the fastest month yet! This month we flew down to Melbourne and Hobart for a little holiday. We had such a great time, and you flew like a pro! You are a different flyer to your brother – you were so interested in the plane and everything involved. You hardly wanted to sleep on the plane! This was pretty much your pattern for the whole trip (not wanting to sleep), but…

    Luke & I packed our bags and got everything ready the night before we needed to leave Hobart so that our early wake-up was… less early! We got it all together and it was a short drive to the airport. The car we had hired told us it got down to 2º outside on our way there! So cold. Anyway, we got to the airport and checked in our pram, and hauled our excessive (but actually excessive – just felt like that with coats and children as well!) amount of hand luggage through the empty screening process & grabbed some breakfast. We were nice and on time for our flight which was due to leave at 8:10, but it was delayed till 8:30. We were pretty glad to get on the plane because the flight next to us was told they would be delayed by over an hour! 

    We got on the plane, took off, and made the short flight over to Melbourne. It’s about an hour or so of flying, but when we’re not too far in the captain says that we will have to circle around Melbourne for a bit because there’s been some fog and it hasn’t lifted as quickly as they thought it would. I grab out a packet of bagel chips i thankfully had in our bags (an advantage of having only carry-on – everything is with you when you’re up in the plane!!), and we munched on those.  The thick fog causes air traffic delays in Melbourne, and we are told there is almost zero visibility! Realising that we might be here for a while I get Lior to lie down on my lap and I stroke his hair and sing to him till he falls asleep. Then of course once Lior is asleep Eli gets grizzly as well so Luke passes him to me and I position him sort of lying on top of Lior, with his mouth near my boob and I breastfed him to sleep. It was quite a sight I’m sure!! When Eli breastfeeds to sleep he often needs a little rock afterwards when he’s taken off to boob, so I did that with Lior on my lap, and Eli in my arms! Luke had offered to take Lior away, but we don’t want to risk him waking up. By this stage we have got to Melbourne and we are circling around for about an hour, maybe a bit longer. My arms are tired and Luke, Lior & Eli are all sleeping. I try to close my eyes and rest (I haven’t got much sleep while we’ve been away because of Eli and I can feel it catching up on me!!), but it’s a bit hard because I’m holding so many other people! After an hour or so circling Melbourne the captain tells us that we will be going BACK to Hobart because we can’t land and we are running out of fuel. So back to Hobart we go.

    Lior is still not awake when it was time to land so we get an extra seat belt and Luke & I each hold a boy as we land. A few people get off the plane, but if we get off we aren’t allowed back on again (I overhead one man ask if he could get off as he had already missed the meeting in Melbourne he was flying in for, so there was no point in him going back to Melbourne now). SO we wait on the ground for ½ an hour to 45 minutes, and Lior wakes up. After our wait we take off again and this time when we got to Melbourne we actually get to land! Yippee!

    I was quite disappointed that while Jetstar did give us free tea and coffee they didn’t actually TELL ANYONE that it was free unless they ordered it thinking they would have to pay. We actually called the hostess back and said we’d take the cups of tea seeing as they were free when we overheard them refuse money from the people in front of us and say it was complimentary. Originally we’d said no assuming we’d have to pay like you normally do. I felt like this was REALLY poor form. Sure, it wasn’t their fault there was huge fog over Melbourne and no one could land, but that’s not what customer service is about. The airline that had the flight next to us in Hobart that delayed its flight by over an hour gave each passenger a $20 voucher to spend on food at the airport AND they were in the airport able to walk around, not stuck on a plane. So for that I was really disappointed with Jetstar. While we were in the air the flight manager saw I was holding both sleeping babies and said he’d get something for me or try to find us some more room, but then never spoke to me again. A drink of water would have been excellent especially considering I was breastfeeding.

    So that’s the story of our HUGE flight from Hobart to Melbourne. One hour turned into 4 hours!! And while a four hour flight is not that big of a deal, it is a bit of a shock when you’re entirely unprepared for it. It was also exciting though – the first time I’ve actually gone back and landed at the airport I took off from!

    That time we spent over 4 hours getting from Hobart to Melbourne Luke & I packed our bags and got everything ready the night before we needed to leave Hobart so that our early wake-up was…
