No, it is not a quilt block, it is what Alice and family are experiencing now that we have left 🙂 No more Wii going nonstop in the lounge room; no more Hannah buzzing away in the sewing room (I miss her!); no more yodeling to scare Brian out of his wits…. We did however leave the sweet stray kitty to miaow outside their back door 🙂
There is peace here on our little farm too – other than Jules the sheep dog barking at someone who is using the road (how dare they!). I can hear Snowy the rooster tellling everyone to wake up (fat chance of waking the kids up yet!). I can look over the paddocks into the distance seeing a white covering of frost – yes, it is still cold in Victoria!
The flight back home was fairly uneventful. I managed to read a whole Jeffrey Archer. Kept me occupied at least. The bad part was the trip down at Melbourne – turbulence and a bumping landing. I felt sick for the next hour and a half – which was nice for Cameron since I didn’t talk much until we caught sight of Ballarat whereupon I didn’t stop talking till we got home 🙂
I think I had the best holiday ever at Alice’s these past two weeks 🙂 She spoiled us all! No housework, food provided, and most of all, sewing machine provided to do lots of fun stuff!!!! Thank you Alice, we all had a wonderful time!
And now it is back to the real world 🙂 I need to unpack, say hello to all my animals, dust, etc, etc, etc! It is always lovely to be home though. East, west, home’s best 🙂
