Home Sweet Home

I had a nice post in my iPad drafts but of course, being me, I can't seem to connect.
I think it's because my work password expired while I was on holiday.
So iPad pics will have to wait til Tuesday when I'm back at work.
my favourite place in NYC - Bryant Park

Nevertheless, I'm home!
It's fantastic to be back - I squealed when I realised I'm paying in Rand again. It's so easy to just swipe when the numbers seem small until I switched on my cell phone in the airport this morning (for the first time since I left) and saw all the transactions. Gulp.
It will all be fine though - I kept track of the expenses and I think we're within budget. Of course that "inspired" me to go a bit wild in the airport with t-shirts for us and for the kids.
And we got the BEST welcome from the kids - they both couldn't stop smiling. Kendra kept saying, "I missed you, Mummy" and Connor kept saying, "you must sleep here tonight!" as if I'm in the habit of sleeping out!
However they didn't want to nap at ALL today so this post will be short as there are hands everywhere. Cute hands but that does mean nothing is 100% done. Both my bedroom and the study are unpacked.
The only thing that's ready to go is the dirty laundry.
I feel like my whole weekend was taken up travelling. Oh yes, that's right. It was! I flew direct but those 15 hours stretched to about 21 :)
But enough about me, how was YOUR weekend?


  1. So glad to hear you're home safe with your sweet babies!!! I hope you're able to enjoy lots and lots of snuggles, get a few things done (you can't do everything at once!), and get some rest!

    Hugs to you!!!

  2. Marcia, this is your opportunity to come clean about where you sleep. Connor's let the secret out :) ;)

    Welcome back!!! Hope you don't suffer from jet lag like some of us

  3. So happy to hear you made it home safe and sound. It must have been wonderful to see those sweet faces after a long time apart. What a pleasure to actually meet you in person! Glad you enjoyed our city--our very expensive city!

  4. Welcome back! And you see, all was fine with the kids. GLad you took the chance and oppertunity

  5. Welcome back, I am sure you were also very happy to see the kids!
