Settling down

After the rush of Christmas life is getting back to normal. The washing machine is going with the third load of the day, all animals have been feed and watered a are now enjoying a mid morning sleep in the sun and I've got the house under control again.
The flu I brought back with me has flared up and I'm feeling very sorry for myself but apart from that all is well in our world. 
I hope you all have recovered from Christmas,that you got very spoilt and had a wonderful time catching up with family and friends
See ya

Christmas 2014

Sunday, December 21, 2014


I've now been home for a few days and I'm still recovering. It's a long way from here to anywhere else in the world and those long flights are an endurance test. 
But slowly my body clock is getting used to the time zone and although my tiredness is epic the aches and pains are surprisingly not over the top. 
We did a heaps of walking while on the tour and although I ate whatever I wanted and didn't worry about the diet I actually got home and found that I had dropped even more wight. The scales say 3.5 kilos but my clothes say more like about five kilos!
So the European whirl, it's boot camp with culture!

Meanwhile you know it's the little things that make me happy and this phone case for my new phone makes me very happy. 
I got it in London and I love it. I've been looking for a real London phone box as I have had dreams of turning one into an avairy for the backyard. But this is just as good. 
So open the door and step inside to make you call lol
See how silly you get when your tired.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend, hope your all ready for Christmas Day.
See ya

Euro Disney Paris

Today we did Disney it was lots of fun  I went on two rides and that was enough for me. I was there for five hours and I had had enough.
So I said goodbye to Fran dani and the girls and came back home. ON MY OWN!  Yes folks I did it. Out if the park back to the train station and onto the train back to Paris and our hotel. The biggest problem I had was finding the right exit out of the station as I wanted to go into the shopping centre as I needed to find a pharmacy. another reason I came home early was I have the flu. So then I had to fine the pharmacy and get some flu tablets and walked back to the hotel. It was an adventure pushing my comfort zone but I did it. I'm pretty proud of myself. I even got chatted up by a French man. But I kept going lol
So if you like Disney and are into that thing give it a go. Me well I've done one Disney park not really interested in doing others.

Moulin rouge

Our last night of the tour we spent at the moulin rouge. Oh what a night. The show was amazing and the food fantastic. Our group was the best and we really enjoyed ourselves. 
Now for the embarrassing bit. There was a ventriloquist and he pulled four people on stage. Yup I was one. I couldn't see all the group because of the lights but I sure could hear them. So there you go I was on that famous stage. A memory that will last forever. If you get the chance go. It's a once in a lifetime experience. 
A few more days and we will be home 
See ya

Yesterday we left London and got on the Eurostar. It goes 350 kilometres an hour!
We changed to coach at Brussels and stopped for a coffee break, I had chocolate before getting into the Netherlands. 
Here is one of the many windmills 
The palace in the city. Beautiful 
We had a cruise on the canals and a welcome dinner. It's lovely here and many people actually live on the water on houseboats.
Today we go to Germanysee ya
