Home Sweet Home

We're finally home! It's so bittersweet... I had an amazing time with my family and I was so sad to leave. I hate that I live so far away from all my family and I wish I could scoop them all up and take them home with me. But it is kind of nice to be home. Oh how I missed the kitties! Matilda ran to us the second we got home but Isobel gave us a bit of stink eye before finally snuggling with me on the sofa that evening. She's a tough little girl!

So we're starting to settle back to life as we know it. Though I've been waking up at 7am every morning since. Anyone who knows me well realises that this is extremely disturbing behaviour. I figure while I don't have kids, I should sleep while I can, right? But it's nice to get loads of things done in the day... although I'm a night owl by nature, and I seem to fade around the time I'm usually sewing away. We're going to have to do sort this out!

Anyhow, it was so nice to see that spring had sprung while we were away (though all this sun has given my chest and arms a beautiful rash... it's probably eczema). The tulips have held on till we got home... I thought I was going to miss them!! :)

The forsythia have kind of faded but there's still some yellow flowers on there :)

And this stupid rooster. It was there when we moved in and for some odd reason, I never removed it. Now that we're looking to move, I'll just leave it there to scare the new owners hehe!

There'll be pictures of our trip to come... I just had to take these pictures first because it's probably going to be the last spring we'll spend in this house.

Followed your trip on IG, oh, all that lovely fooooood (am a foodie myself & love Asian food, grew up with Indonesian food, which is where my father came from). Beautiful pictures, such bright, sharp colors. May I ask you which camera you used? And did you do anything with the pictures afterwards (Picasa or such) or is this the way they came out? They are lovely.
And I actually like that rooster..... ;-)

Your rash may be sun sensitivity or 'sun poisoning' Very light people get it, especially if their skin is not exposed to much sun. It could also come from medications. I had this very badly the last ten years. Lived like a vampire! But I looked it up on Google and found a great sunscreen, that protects from UVA rays that do this damage, it is a Vichy product that must contain
MEXORYL. I used it last summer and though not fool proof, I found I could handle the sun for longer periods than without it. Also, no scars!
