I'm back.....

Postby WingAdmin » Mon Apr 13, 2015 8:43 am



As some may have noticed, I've been away for a week and a half. I was over in England - normally I keep online from there so I don't get too far behind on the site, but the Internet connection I had there was unusably slow - so apart from a couple emergencies I had to do via my phone, I let the site go on its merry way while I was gone. :)

I've now got at least a full day of reading and catching up to do. I can't believe how many posts there are!!!

I picked up a nasty head cold on my last day there, then was awake for 24 hours as I travelled home, now I'm back at work, jet-lagged, sick, and tired. It's great to be back!

WA, did you get a chance to hop over to see Old Fogey's shop while you were over there? If I made the trip to Dreary Old England, I'd want to visit Dreary Old Scotland too. :lol:

Are you kidding? The weather was warm, sunny and gorgeous every single day - for six days in a row! Unheard of for England! Far nicer weather than we were having back home.

No, not this time. I haven't been up to Scotland for a number of years, perhaps next year.

Good to see you back 'in harness'. If your vacation was to England, at this time of the year, what was first prize? 8-)

You must go to Cape town, RSA. My home. Go up to Table mountain, visit Stellenbosch wineries and of course, go to the beach 8-)
Been to England many times, many friends there.

With me it never fails;either I get sick during the vacation,or as soon as I get home! I figured it was natures way of telling me don't take vacations! It's cheaper that way!

Glad to know you're both back safe.

Hairdo... it's modern. Actually goes with her face shape rather well.

Don't take any trips to Antarctica anytime soon.
I hear the Penguins are doing some really-really weird things with there hair.

To save her hairdo, maybe a customized helmet?
