Home again, home again, jiggety jig.....

After a wonderful holiday and just such amazing time with my family I had an uneventful (although tearful) flight home - spare seats next to me and for one leg I had 4 seats to myself.... imagine that - overfed Nana sprawled over 4 seats - I sure hope I didn't snore!!!

My UK children took me out for a lovely dinner in London ..... of course there was dessert... pecan pie



Back home we had a lunar eclipse yesterday morning .... my son who lives further north (Queensland) - at the beach - (tough gig!!) took these pictures:



how awesome... I would have loved to have been there.  Apparently we will be at the centre of one in 2037 - here's hoping I will see it! We just had poor light for a while yesterday

What a lovely welcome waiting when I got back.....


I feel so lucky to have such a wonderful family and friends....  

.... of course that includes blogging friends..... thanks for the emails and comments I have had and my apologies that I haven't commented much.... normal service will resume shortly!!!

I did manage a little bit of handwork on holiday .... a couple of wash-cloths....


.... not bad for 6 weeks....

Lucky also that I am back in time for


Go HERE to sign up at Heidi's .... I have some secret sewing to get done!

Righto, Gotto Go... still catching up on laundry!
