My journey home is not going well 21:49 - Oct 2 with 1387 viewsNewcyBlue

Malaga to Amsterdam flight delayed. Considerably.

I ran to the Newcastle gate with minutes to spare. I get there and the gate is closed.

They turfed me off the flight as their procedure is 40 minutes for transfer.

Currently sat in a hotel waiting to fly tomorrow.

I’ll probably miss visiting at the hospital tomorrow.

Give your family extra hugs TWTD, because I can’t.

So sorry to hear this, Newcy. At least you are on the way and not still stuck at sea. I hope all goes well from here on in and that you still get to the hospital tomorrow. Maybe even an explanation of your special circumstances might allow them to be flexible at the hospital although they have to be careful so might not be possible.

You’re in charge of a chuffin great big boat and over 70% of the world is water. How hard can it be?


Nearly there Newcy. I’m sure you’d rather be home now, but that won’t matter one bit when you get to see them.

That must be very frustrating for you.

But the best things are worth waiting for so hope all goes well from here Newcy. I also had twins, boy and girl who were premature. Hard work but great fun and they both have their own children now!

Not long now, so good luck.

Which will happen first - Town getting back into the top division or airlines treating their passengers reasonably?

There are worse airports to be stuck in than Schipol, if that is any consolation.

Mrs Badger is currently stuck in Portugal, having had her return flight cancelled(without no notification whatsoever) by Jet2. Thankfully she has a another week's leave to play with and is WFH but it's utterly maddening and likely to involve giving money to bloody Ryanair to get her home.

I sat smiling at the Norwich people getting on their flight, whilst I was waiting for the Newcastle one. Thinking how great I looked grinning at them in my Ipswich Town hoodie.

I was only wearing a face mask. They basically saw some idiot Town fan staring at them...

Got home, car was dead. Showered, walked down and hired a van. Drove to the hospital. MrsN started crying when I walked in. I started crying when I held our little girl. She’s tiny. Utterly tiny. And she’s the bigger of the two.

After an hour and a bit, I walked along to special care baby unit. Sat down and held our little boy. He’s incredibly small. There were more tears.

They’re magnificent.

Names were agreed.

Madeleine and Michael (Michael was my good friend who died in May).

They’re absolutely wonderful.

I then went to Ikea, got the cots and the changing table. The wardrobes MrsN wanted weren’t in stock.

I asked if I could pop round and see Seb. Answer was a no. I’ll see him Tuesday.

Seb isn’t allowed to visit. He’s staying Friday and Saturday nights, so Saturday and Sunday we won’t be able to visit the babies. I will use the time with Seb to have some proper boy time. I’m sure he must be worried that there’s new babies and he’s going to be pushed aside. So I will make sure he understands that will never happen.

It’s weird being in the house alone. The cats come to me for a little bit then they have sodded off because it’s stopped raining and they have gone outside.

I’ve been to Asda to get some food, but to be honest I came back with bacon, stotties, and a bar of chocolate. It was just far too much choice that I didn’t know what to buy. I’m not used to choice.

I’ll sit down and plan my food tomorrow.

Oh and I have also narrowed it down to a Ford S Max or a Ford Galaxy both cars seem to be ideal for 3 car seats. Or a Mercedes V class.

I’ve had 8 hours sleep since 0700 on Thursday. Currently lying in bed and can’t sleep. It’s too quiet. My ears are ringing. This happens every time. I’m so used to the noise of the ship, the engine, the ventilation, the feel of the movement of the ship. At least when MrsN is here I can hear her breathing.

The cats have been all over me. I need to find my antihistamines.

A bacon stottie tomorrow should cure all!

This not being able to see your own kid is a weird thing. My brother in law has it with his only daughter. Not easy to cope with at all, no idea how you do it.
