Being back

What a marvelous time I had on holidays.  More than marvelous, exceptionally marvelous.  I'm struggling to work out how to write about it but I might just slowly trawl through the days one by one to drag out the joy.  That could be a fun thing.

It's funny how you get back from a great time and want to make every day of your life as great as that time.  And you can't nor should it be.  The joy of amazing things comes from being completely suprised by it and without some of the ordinary and mundane it would never pale in comparison.  What I found to be a take home message was that getting older (or not being young) doesn't mean I need to lay down and be bored/boring.  So many women doing amazing things.

Dogs have been good and are not broken or too fat.  The neighbor accidentally set fire to the fence while I was away but luckily Mum put it out with the hose (and she conveniently hosed their sound system which they play very annoying loud music on.  Good job Mum).  Someone ran into the back of my car but that is all organised and off to the repairers in a week's time.  All in all nothing serious.

One last day off and then back to work tomorrow.  Luckily we have some agility fun with friends on Wednesday night to keep me pushing through.

And look who is here? We must have crested the hump of winter

I love multi-part travelogues. With many photos so I can see the sights. Our day at the beach will take many installments for me because beach photos are special. Romping Gordons make them even better.

I know! If I'd done another 2 days on the holiday I would have been able to make it out to you. You are a long way out ;). You will be impressed when I write about day 4.
