Swancon, here I come! [Jan. 21st, 2012|03:47 pm]

Okay, airfares are booked, just need to deal with hotel now.

It will be another flying visit, arriving the day before, leaving the day after. Sadly Sharon isn't coming. We priced out coming over with the kids and it just wasn't affordable. I offered Sharon the chance to go, but she decided that given how little adult contact I get, it should be me.

Originally we were all going to be going. I was going to drive over with my mum and the kids, Shaz was going to fly over, and then we were all going to meander back to Cooma, but losing all Shaz's holidays last year blew that right out of the water.

On the plus side, this will be my 19th Swancon since 1989! I'm quite pleased about that. So hopefully next year we can all be there as a family for when I get my badge :D

Does this mean Sharon gets to go to Continuum, or are you all going to that, or none of you?

Current plan is for all of us. I sort of have to be there for the Chronos Awards but if finances or other things disrupt our going, I will drive down, do the Chronos Awards, and drive home. So leave Friday, home Saturday.

Actually the current plan is for all of us to take a week or two down there. Travelling with kids means four days of actual travel. If we just go to the con it's travel-con-travel which is doable but less fun.

*nods* cool. I hope things go well and you are all able to travel down.

So do we!

I enjoy travelling on my own, and life is a lot easier if the kids aren't there, but I'd much rather have Shaz with me. I'm a big fan of any extra Sharon time I can get!

Swancon? Adult contact? Bwahahahaha!

Glad to have you, sorry everyone can't come.
