Standing at the bus station with the Baby Angel, it suddenly occurred to me that I haven't seen her off at the airport this year. Now that she's finished school and is working (albeit part time), she hasn't done her holiday flights to her dad like she used to. Today she's off to spend 10 days with the returned soldier, for his 21st birthday. He's a country boy from the border of Victoria/NSW and he's spending his disembarkation leave back at home. We're not sure where this relationship is going. He's a lovely lad, but he's starting to think of the future and he's astute enough to realise that the BA isn't even close to that yet. Oh well, I hope she has a good time and stays safe. A 13 hour bus ride lies ahead of her. Hmmm. She met Soldier Boy on a plane. Maybe she'll meet someone else on the bus??
