The house is deadly quiet
with the final grandchild gone. The first party arrived in OZ ok but not without drama. BA Edinburgh refused to allow the 5 month old girl to board as she had not got an Australian Visa-despite the fact that both parents are UK/OZ citizens and the 4 year old brother is also a dual national. Little Katy Beth has a British passport, born in Australia, and no one thought a visa necessary. BA relented after talking to OZ immigration but the same drama was re-enacted at Heathrow and that having been sorted out the Australians pounced at Sydney and took the whole party aside as if they were on some stop list. It may have been that the Sydney sniffer dogs got a whiff of KB’s nappy which may have got alarm bells ringing but it is the last thing you want after a 22 hour flight.
