The customary train pause due to a bomb scare at Roissy...


Entering CDG... "alight here for transfers to... the entire world"

According to my pocket scale (handy!) my cabin luggage is at 6.9kg and my check-in is at 29.8kg. Let's hope the airport scales agree

While packing I made a packing list for the DoC / customs control in Auckland, and stuck one copy in the luggage and one copy on me. We'll see if that helps...

The airport scale did not agree with me, but a very kind staff pushed it through anyway

Got it! Smelled a bit of cheese, so I opened it up to see if anything opened, was all fine, and now I go and see if DoC let's it all through

Got through all clear. Had to open the bag because they didn't believe me (rightfully, I mean, it makes sense) when I said the glass jars showing up on the xray were not jam (they're caramel spread).

Now I stand in the salty nz air waiting for my pickup. Almost smells like home, and certainly better than the polluted air on the old continent

Going on 30 hours of being either sitting or standing up with no sleep for longer than 3 hours at a time and my body is not liking it. Light but persistent ache everywhere, I really need to lie down but about four hours away from that.

Actually calculated at 40 odd hours since I left a bed last. I'm at my rents and will sleep there tonight and go home tomorrow well rested and all. Fucken phew.

About to sleep. It's a bit early but I'm weary af. Good night twitter

Home sweet fucking home, gonna turn the heaters on, the holiday automation off, setup the computers, charge my devices, go to the post office, thank past me for doing an okay job such that I don't have to clean now, and do some cleaning anyway.
