A welcome home

We got back mid afternoon.

The worst of the unpacking is done. Mouse has reacquainted himself with every corner of the house and back yard and has enjoyed stretching his legs and savaging a bone out there. He’s now asleep (at least until I feed him, that is), and the Husband and I are both sitting down with a cup of tea.

I wandered around the back yard to see if everything had survived. It has, and the garden has welcomed me home with a few new faces. Here are pictures and no words; I’m too tired.

More tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚

    How beautiful they all look. I guess you are heading for Summer now. We have had our first night of frost, just a little bit but enough for the tropical plants. My mediterrenian plants can have a few degrees of frost so I’ll have to put them inside this week. I hate that !!!

  9. It was a big trip but lovely to see you, and now to see you safely at home in the colourful delights of your garden.

      It was a good trip home, with rain in the last two places we stayed (sorry we couldn’t arrange it at your place!), which was badly needed. Aerogard took care of the bitey things at Tannum Sands, so we were able to enjoy that more this time. Lovely spot. One final long haul, and we were back, and Mouse is totally relaxed and happy.

      Thank you! It was a lovely restful holiday, but very good to be home, just for the extra space! I will miss the big beaches, the surf, the slightly cooler temperatures, the proximity of friends and family, but my own bed, the sewing room and the happiness of the doggo at being home too are wonderful.

    Welcome home….from us and the flowers!

      Thank you! And thank you also for the info about the quilt exhibition at the Hawkesbury, which I’m seriously considering for my Next Big Thing, which is going to be quite different from anything I’ve done before. No guarantees I’d be selected, of course, but if you don’t try….

  11. Ah yes, the vacation after the vacation. Trips are so fun and so exhausting. Once all is caught up, you can elaborate on the details. Glad you are all home safe and happy.

    Welcome home. I just got back from the U.K. where, as usual, I tried to do too much in a short space of time so I’m also tired but don’t have a baby pineapple to look at. I think I missed your third instalment when I was away so I’ll go and have a peek now.

      I’m slowly learning the benefits of not cramming too much in. Shame it’s taken most of my life to learn that particular lesson. I really loved watching Mouse’s delight when we got home, zooming round the back yard, sprawling on his bed, trotting through every room with his tail wagging. I know how he felt. I just didn’t wag my tail….

    Your flowers must’ve missed you–they threw quite a welcome home party! I hope you’ve had some time to relax and get caught up with yourselves.

    • katechiconi says:

      I’m still wondering why it takes twice as long to unpack and put stuff away as it does to get it out and pack it…. Plus, of course, the caravan is dirty, the bedding all needs to be washed, and we have to repair and replace things as needed. So as I plod through the chores, the flowers remind me to smile ๐Ÿ™‚
