to do and so little time. OK I know I'm not alone in having that problem.
CJ and I arrived back in Eagleton late Tuesday evening after a fairly bumpy trip across The Minch. 'They' really should get the surface of The Minch attended to - too many potholes or was it the swell. I'm fortunate in that I'm a good sailor but one or two went very quiet once we were out of Loch Broom and into the swell. I can't believe that it was like that in July.
It took the rest of the evening to unpack the car and sort out the resultant mess. I often wonder how I can travel with so much stuff when I'm in this country but travel with one small suitcase when I travel between here and New Zealand. The answer is partly clothes: I don't need to take clothes between here and NZ.
Yesterday was spent, as one might expect, doing the usual things one does when one arrives back from a trip away. Of course CJ and I added to that a trip to town and The Woodlands Centre for our daily coffee and crossword fix. Whilst I tried to bring the garden under control in the afternoon CJ sorted wedding photos. Pat visited in the afternoon and Carol came down in the evening. By then a most enjoyable day was drawing to a close and a catch-up phone call with Mo one of my oldest friends (which is a reference to how long we've known each other and not to her age!) in Canada was my final act before sleep took hold.
Today I will, hopefully, be back in Blogland at least for a while.
