We're home!


We're tired but we're home safe and sound - us and the kitties. We have internet again too (and wow it's fast compared to NZ), so more updates soon.

The flight was not so great - 4 hours delay meaning a total journey time of about 45 hours. I got sat next to a smelly drunk for 14 hours too - yuk! But we're here and it's so good to be home. We've had flowers from the neighbours, dinner with Martin's mum and dad, and lunch with Martin's brother and family. I can't tell you how happy I am to be home.

The cats are happy to be here too. They know where they are and today we let them into the garden for the first time while I tackled the weeds. Lulu promptly went next door to steal their cat's food. She remembers how things work round here!

Stitching updates to come soon but I haven't done much. I went almost a whole week without time to pick up a needle! I also need to say a big thank you to Isabelle for a wonderful welcome home present (I'll post a picture very soon!), to Karen for sending me one of her charts, and to Anne - without whose help I wouldn't be able to post at all as we wouldn't have been able to air freight our computer!

  1. Hooray, you're back!

    So glad you made it back OK, even if the journey was a bit horrendous. It's great to see you posting again :)

    You're welcome to the chart - hope you enjoy stitching it! Looking forward to seeing L is for Lion; I did start Y but progress has been a bit hit and miss - hopefully it'll be done by *this* weekend! ;)

    Happy to hear that your kitties are safe too - did they not need quarantine? Good in my eyes.
