Back to the real world with a thud!!!

Where has the last week gone? This time last week we were still in Santa Monica enjoying our last day, breakfast, lunch and drinks on the hotel's veranda overlooking the beach! Now we are home and have hit the ground running. The 'horsey' one didn't have much time to acclimatise before heading off to camp on Friday for 8 days. It is a proper camp, they sleep in bivies / under tarps, cook for themselves, dig their own toilets and carry all their own gear. They do some hiking, biking, and surfing so some fun. I cannot believe she was looking forward to it - obviously those genes are not from my side of the family!!!! HS was back to school on Friday, not overly happy about it, think he would be happy to be on holidays permanently!! Saturday saw me return to work at the boarding house, luckily the girls were all on their best behaviour although the alarms went off at 1am - grrr - I need my sleep!!! SH was back to tennis Saturday and HS baseball so the summer sport season has well and truly started. SH and I are back to our proper jobs this morning so guess that means the holiday is well and truly over. We are still to fully unpack and this evening will be opening the huge mound of mail that arrived while we were away. We came home to a 'dead' washing machine - not what we needed with the amount of washing we have but we will deal with that tonight too along with a trip to the laundromat!! There has been crafting since I've been home but its a secret so no photos yet!! Hopefully in the next day or two will be posts about the trip as I sort through the 1200 photos we took!!

Glad to hear you arrived back safe and sound. Coming home from holiday is a bit of a downer for the first week. But it sounds like you haven't had a chance to worry about that as life appears to be in full swing for you. Look forward to seeing the photos too. Did you get a chance to do crafty shopping over there?

Glad to have you back. Look forward to seeing the photos too. my washing machine went on the blink the week Sophie was born. Not funny at all to have to go to Curry's to buy a machine 5 days after giving birth!
