Hello I'm Back....

Hi guys yes I'm back from my travels...had a great holiday (rest) in Kenya (yes I've been before).. but unfortunately brought back a tummy bug ( yes I had one last time!!!)...with me which totally wiped me out for the past week...ugh!! so it all seem a distant memory now here is a pic of the view from my

yes they are my
the weather was just gorgeous although we had rain too...went on safari..(pics to follow) but most of all I had a lovely rest after such an trying year.  I left my sister in charge of my Mum..but unfortunately the nursing home had this horrendous tummy bug that's going around and had to close to visitors and its only just opened again this week so my poor mum (she didn't have it thank god!!!) hasn't seen any family for over 3 weeks.... my sister went as soon as she could but as I was poorly I haven't seen her yet..the thing is my mum hasn't got any sense of time now so it didn't really bother her...but it didn't make us stop worrying!!
I'm now running around like a headless chicken trying to catch up as I have a stall at a Christmas fair on Sunday and I'm panicking that I don't have enough cards to many IS enough??????
hope you are all well and dry...
