All went reasonably well. All three boys had fallen asleep on landing, so some lovely Qantas helped extract the boys from the cabin.

I ended up asking the Shared Services department in my company for assistance and they had an agreement with a vendor at the airport. After some initial misunderstandings, i asked him to go into the 'sterile'area to meet them at the gate. He managed to acquire a buggy and waited as they were the last of the plane. He drove them to immigration. Apparently skipped all the queues and got them through one of the 'special' immigration counters. Throughout the process he was sending me pics of them at each step. Was kinda cool. Qantas had also allowed the double pram to be dropped off and picked up at the respective gates which was great.

Now the hotel I booked for us to stay overnight gave us a free shuttle at terminal 3 to pick them all up as I was electrocuted in the bathroom while washing my hands but thats another story....

I swear the first time I read this I thought it said "washing my tiny hands"

That's why I replied to say that would be far more interesting story than electrocution.

Alas, I am just blind. Or blinded by Trump

Hand dryer designer James Dyson laughed when he heard the story.
“Oh my Lord! He’d have been there all day!
“Hand dryers don’t actually do anything except play a short sound effect of blowing air.
“I make loads of money from them though – they’re my best invention yet!”

Recent studies have tagged hot air hand dryers as incubators and spreaders of germs and viruses. Less sanitary it seems, than paper towel dispensers.
