Home Sweet Home....

We're back from our trip! we had such a great time but it feels so good to be home again too.
No matter how much fun you're having its great to be back to your familiar surroundings isnt it?....even my boys got excited to see their toys and books and to sleep in their own beds!
but we had a FAB time up north...it was hot and humid and every night it would rain - very tropical!
We swam everyday and ate icecream every night, I even finished my current read 'Suite Francaise' - what a great book!!

it felt like half of Sydney was there - we met up with 4 families we knew and one night we booked a table for 18, Im sure the restaurant was happy to have us but regretted letting us in once all the kids got together! we were so loud!
Its been a little hard getting into the new year - January is always a strange month ...i have much to do around the house, dusting, washing, packing away...you know the usual stuff...Im ignoring my ironing basket - Im trying to convince myself its not there ....have a Fun Weekend!!

  1. I wish I was on vacation!! I love Holly Hobby. My sister had a holly hobby doll, I think. I always loved the bonnet! Welcome home! I am glad you got some R &R.

  2. These two images are just adorable and oh so true about coming home, no matter how great the trip.

  3. hi Anastasia,

    a quick hello ... I always feel like I want to come back home when I have been away for a while ... there is nothing like home, really.

    I hope you are doing alright and all relaxed after the holidays

    take care :)*

    glad to hear you had a great holiday! Andrew is already asking to go on an aeroplane so we must book our next hols' somewhere sunny up there too!

  5. Holly Hobby pictures are so adorable!
    Good to see you back and hear you had a great time.

  6. I agree, always great to fall back into your own bed !

  7. I'm so glad that you are back, AND I love Holly Hobby. She's the best!

  8. I understand the sluggish January feeling. Can you believe we are already more than half way through? Resolutions for a slower year should hopefully kick in soon :) Hooray for home comforts.

  9. These old Holly Hobbie images remind me of my sister and my Grandma, who both collected Holly Hobbie plates at one time. I'd forgotten how charming they are.

    I'm glad that you had a wonderful trip, and that you've returned home safely.


Thanks for stopping by and taking time to comment!! i really appreciate it!
