Good morning, everyone. It's nice to be back after my little blogging break. I promise I will catch up on reading all your blog entries, even if I don't leave any comments.
People are so caring. Don't get me wrong, I'm not 'glad' that some were worried but it is confidence boosting to be missed. I think I just needed a break; certain things were just getting on top of me. A very First World thing when I was away on a lovely holiday, isn't it?
Holiday is over and I'm spending the weekend at Dad's, going home this afternoon. The reason for not staying until tomorrow as I usually do is that I have a car packed with stuff that will need unpacking and sorted out before the double glazing people come to look and quote over lunchtime tomorrow. Getting home today just makes it easier all round.
I took far too much with, of course! The thing is, Center Parcs is not cheap and shopping in their 'ParcMarket' adds considerably to the final bill. I don't know how they can justify it really, given that it is basically a glorified co-op with co-op branded goods as well as the big brands, but profit is master, I guess. Because of that, I take a lot of basics with me and this year I took way too much. Clothes too! Oh, well.
I arrived at Dad's on Friday afternoon and by evening I'd done all the clothes which might even get ironed before I leave, you never know! I need something to put on my exercise chart for today and a good stand up ironing session would be just the ticket.
Anyway, it was a very nice holiday all in - just a shame I had a mood drop in the middle. I swam lots, walked lots and, unfortunately, ate lots! There was one really horrible, wet day but the rest of the time it was sunny intervals with the occasional shower.
As mentioned, I'll be off home after lunch and should be all settled back into my home again by this evening. It'll be nice to be home, I have to admit; I've missed it. East, west, home's best, as the saying goes.
