It's Nice To Go Away...

But, it’s also nice to get home!
Well here we are, back to work after two weeks away in the USA. We did the usually touristy things in Florida, visiting theme parks, swimming in the house pool & over-indulging in the food department. The kids were most impressed with a visit to ‘The Wizarding World of Harry Potter’ (although Meri is quite upset that her wand doesn’t do ‘real’ magic). Spending time off with family and friends has done us the world of good but there does come a time on every holiday when you start to think about home. Returning to The Lake District was a bit of a shock to the system after a fortnight of 30C, but we were greeted to sunshine and clear sky.
While we were away our relief team (Heathers mum Ann & partner Lynda) have done a fantastic job. The cottages have been looked after, problems sorted out, bookings taken and dealt with. We can’t thank Ann & Lynda enough for all they have done for us (now we have to live up to the standards they’ve set).
The next few days will see us getting back into the swing of things and catching up on all that has gone on in our absence. Holidays are great, but one of the best things they do is remind you how nice it is to get home.
