More updates and a thank you!

First, thank you all for the welcome home greetings. We're pretty jet lagged but happy. I picked up a nasty cold on the plane too so it's been extra tiring. The house is grubby and most of my garden plants have died, but it's all easily fixed. It's just so good to have familiar places and people. The cats have been bounding round the garden this morning (no quarantine needed, just lots of paperwork and vaccinations) and we're all loving the weather - we brought the kiwi sunshine with us I think!

Next, I meant to share this photo yesterday but I couldn't find it. I think Polo was worried we'd leave her behind!


And last but not least, here's the wonderful welcome home gift that Isabelle sent me. Isn't it gorgeous? And just perfect for someone with only a suitcase of belongings and lots of blank walls! It's hanging in the dining room at the moment where I pass it all the time and can admire it. Thank you so much Isabelle!

  6. You are so very welcome, Nicki. You're sweet to me *all* year long - it's only natural I should try and sweeten up your coming back to "our side"! ;) I'm so excited to know you are not far away from Paris now. :)

    Polo is adorable - cats can get pretty nervous when we're packing don't they!
