All back home safely!

Well we made it home safely on Wednesday, back to rain and washing... so nothing much has changed!! Since then we've run a prayer meeting(Wednesday evening), placed and received as Asda order, collected David's AS results (which were fine), bought some new bathroom scales,and of course done way too much laundry. I also went to the pub with the girls last night and then we all got together for coffee at Marie's this morning. Mum came round this afternoon too, and it was lovely to see her!

Then later this afternoon David arrived back from Canada, it was good to see him again. We've had a roast for dinner and caught up on all our news...

On the frivolous side... I have bought and applied some bright purple nail varnish to match my sandals!! and I am spending far too much time making and doing puzzles on facebook!!

But most of all I'm missing sun and palm trees:

Well, welcome back safe and sound!!!
All good news from the sound of it, too. Purple nails and sandals, now that sounds pretty sexy *g*

It's fine here but pretty cold. A lot of old people seem to be dying at this time of the year. One of our oldest parishioners, Jim, died on Friday, and another one, who was also very frail, said, "I don't want to live any more. I think now that Jim's gone, I'll go too." And she did, the next day!

I'm so glad you had a great journey and thanks for all the photos!

The purple nails are fun... but not exactly sexy!!! (just ask the boys about that!!!)

A lot of people have died here recently too, and others are getting very frail... and it's not even winter here, though given the weather, maybe it's not a big surprise.

Welcome home!

My email has crashed so LJ is my only current line of instant communication. I hope this is temporary!

Thank you... it's good to be home, apart from the weather!

Any idea what the problem with your email is? Glad you can still get here anyway!

I can (now) get in using the webmail route. Homecall (my ISP)said AVG's 's latest update was the problem. AVG would only talk to me if I registered for their forum (I have the free edition) but the registration had to be activated via an email, and at that point they also blocked my webmail and Homecall had gone home for the night. I tried to uninstall AVG (which was also saying it didn't like being run concurrently with Zone Alarm) but that proved difficult - not convinced it's gone yet! This morning, I can access webmail again, for the time being, but OE still can't contact the server. Webmail lets me access my emails but I've 'lost' my filing system and it is a pain in the neck!

Glad you are all safe home...lots to catch up on,exchanging holiday stories with David.So glad his As are fine...what is the next step for him?

David's results were AS levels (first year of sixth form), so he now has another year in the sixth form to finish his A levels. We have all the joys of university applications to look forward to this year as well!
