Testing, One, Two, Three ….


Goodness, it’s been a while since I have visited here! When you take yourself out of your life for a while and then come back with a thud, everything feels a bit foreign. How do I drive my car again? How do I fire up this computer? How does this washing machine work again?

I would have attempted a blog post when we arrived home yesterday but I found myself asleep at midday, along with the rest of the gang. I woke to do 6 loads of midnight washing and was then joined not long after by everyone. We sat, huddled on the sofa, eating cereal and watching trashy late night TV until the early hours of the morning. It’s going to take a while to get back on to local time so I’m taking it moderately slow, working my way through my inbox …. and attempting to load up 3000+ photos onto the computer from my iPhone. Computer is not happy. It’s hot and working hard and keeps stopping the upload. Once I get my photos sorted I’ll give you a little bit more than a photo of my midnight Vanilla Chai and late night reading.

It’s good to be back. If I keep saying it, I might just start believing it. Sigh.

A-M xx

      Hello! Well I have 3000 photos, most of which made their way to Instagram so I am going to have to put in a big effort to summarise it all here! It might take me the weekend! A-M xx

  3. Deanne says:

    Welcome home! Looking forward to catching up on all your adventures!

  4. Welcome home! I’m still saying “it’s good to be back,” but I’m still not convinced! If my kids had been with us in France I might not be back! Can’t wait to see your pics.

    Welcome home! Coming home and unpacking is the hardest part. What an amazing adventure you had. Can’t wait to hear all about it.

    • A-M says:

      Oh the unpacking is a bit sad. I am quite emotional packing away the ski gear. Who knows when it will come out again? Cherishing the memories. xxx

    Welcome home! What an adventure! I’m still dealing with the 6000 photos from France. Good luck. My imac struggles. I’m sure you pix are fab. Loved the ski jump you posted.

    • A-M says:

      Oh that was a beauty, that jump! My little tike just flew everywhere in the snow. No fear! We have video footage of him skiing and taking jumps that stop your heart. Great memories! xx

    Welcome home! My two weeks away to the states were busy , but you must be spent! Can’t wait to hear about your trip and see some pics! Take it slow and easy.

    • A-M says:

      The taking it slow is hard. Your mind sort of wants to get started again but the body just wont follow. Foggy head, tired body … doing the best I can. Your 2 weeks in the states sounds exciting! xx

  8. Nice to hear from you. I just looked up your blog yesterday to see what was happening as I was missing your daily chatty posts. Good luck with the time change business. It took me a week to get sorted when I returned from Bangladesh (11 hours difference to Canada).

    Welcome home! You should try some melatonin it works a treat for jetlag, I was on the right time zone within the next day. I just put my ski stuff away this am and I have been back for 2 weeks ! Hope you have some aircon to keep you cool over the next few days :)

  15. Suzanne says:
