Life in the Slow Lane: I'm Back!

I'm Back!

I arrived home last night on a good ol' Ryanair flight (which didn't get the fanfare at the end, as we had a delay of about 45 minutes). DD's best friend was supposed to be arriving just after me..... but of course, because of the delay actually arrived before me we travelled home together.

Much as it's been lovely to catch up with most of the family and lots of friends, it was wonderful to walk into my own house last night....and to sleep in my own bed! BLISS!! There really is 'no place like home', I do believe.

In the space of a week, Boo has turned into a 'shaggy' dog, so I must get an appointment for a hairdo for her. The temperatures have been in the high twenties and it will now just continue to get hotter, so she'll be far too hot if I leave her as she is.

In the same week, my poor garden has taken a bit of a 'pounding'. I had asked Man Friday to come in and water the pots every other day, but I think his idea of watering is very different to mine...however, I've given them a good watering and already they're looking much happier. When the sun goes down a bit I shall get some deadheading done, give them another hosing and go from there.

Hope everyone is well...will start checking on all the Blogs later. I cannot believe how much I missed my daily dose of blogging!

Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you
Alison xx


  1. Welcome home - the plants, Boo and your readers have missed you! Hope you had a great trip.

  2. WElcome home! I'm waiting to send you a book ...

  3. Welcome back. I always find the plants really suffer when I'm away....DD's idea of watering sounds a bit like that of your Man Friday!!

  4. Welcome back Alison - we have missed you too!

  5. No one can water pots like their owners :)

  6. We missed you - lovely to have you back, glad you had a good time :)

  7. Missed you too - welcome home! My garden has just the same issues with the high temps if neglected even a couple of days - hope you resuscitated it - sounds like it!

  8. Welcome Home...happy you're here again!

  9. Welcome home - I think I'd be grateful to be delayed as I find that fanfare very annoying and I have only been on a Ryanair flight twice :0)
    Have fun catching up x

  10. Great you're back safe and sound. I'm sure Boo and your plants will soon be as good as new!

  11. Hope you had a wonderful time but it is always nice to get home isn't it.


Thanks for leaving a comment....I love reading them all!
