We are back! Back in the country that is. I still haven’t figured out if it is home. While we were away, Toby saw a photo of our house on my facebook page, and said “Toby’s house – go home now?” so I guess it is home to him!
One of the problems with having a fabulous weekend away is that when you get back the mundane seems even more so. Because we have been away the fire went out, meaning that our house was freezing (single digits). We put the kids straight into bed and dragged an electric heater into their room to warm the air for a while. We then dragged in the luggage, plonked it in the back room and ignored it.
We lit the fire, got it going and went to bed.
Unfortunately the unpacking fairies didn’t visit us last night so I have a lot of unpacking to do today, followed by Mount Washmore to tackle.
We also have that post holidays blue going well. The kids were initially excited to be back, and celebrated by liberally spreading their lego all over the floor. However 4 nights of very late bedtimes mean that they are irrational, grumpy, and teary. Me thinks there will be a DVD this afternoon!
If you follow me on facebook, you will already know that I had the best weekend ever, but we are back to reality now. I am refusing to sink into the doldrums, and have set myself a highly ambitious (read ridiculous) list of things I want to accomplish over the next few days…. If I can drag myself off the couch.
