take a breath, girl… take a breath!

Got home form work last night to find out that the Thai military are staging a coup d’etah and there are tanks in the streets of Bangkok.  40 hours before my very nervous mother is supposed to stopover there.  Haven’t spoken with her yet, and the coup (so far) appears to be bloodless, but lordy be…  Perhaps BA are changing their stopover plans??

And then there was Steve Irwin’s memoirial service yesterday – televised live on 3 of Australia’s 5 TV channels.  V. sad.  V. sad.  I think every Australian overseas is feeling a bit homesick today.
