We have been back home for a week now, and it was back to earth again with a thump!! As usual, the alarm clock is set for 5.00am, then it is a matter of out of bed, shower, breakfast, make the packed lunches and out the door to work. It wasn't so long ago on our travels that our timetable was like this: wake up naturally, make a cup of tea and take it back to bed, watch the morning programme on TV, and plan our day's sightseeing!!
We collected Muffy from the cattery and had to pay a king's ransom to get her release!! She is worth every penny of course. She gave us the cold shoulder for a while to teach us a lesson for abandoning her. After a few cuddles, and a nice combing to get some tangles out, all was forgiven. She has been following us around the house like a little puppy dog.
While we have been away Spring has sprung and our Kowhai tree has beautiful yellow blossoms cascading down. Spring is a lovely season, with Summer and Christmas coming up fast.
