*FINALLY I have my laptop back so I will endeavour to catch up and inform you about our travels so far…*
Hitting the runway at Gatwick after the long journey back from the Philippines was very exciting. The temperature, a casual 40 degrees lower, was somewhat less exciting. But seriously, I was buzzing to see the family and arriving home to the sparkly frost was far better than rain anyway. Remember that January week where it was crisp and cold and ever-so-beautiful. That was my week at home.
Once at home, first on the agenda was a proper cup of tea made in a pot and a long walk accompanied by the dogs.
