WHEN LIFE GETS IN THE WAY OF READING!

OK - this wasn't our tent and it didn't snow, but you get the gist of it!
I'm behind with my reading,

I'm behind with my write-ups,

I haven't visited many blogs of late,

I haven't responded to messages and e-mails,

All this while I was on holiday!

Now I'm trying to catch-up on 2 weeks plus of work e-mails and catch up on the mayhem that seems to exist around my job at what is our busiest time of year.

Still, I don't have much to moan about if this is as bad as it gets.

I am missing the time I spent with my family over the past couple of weeks, even if I have come to realise that camping in a tent somewhere on the North Norfolk coast on a chilly August weekend isn't really my thing!

A week and a half on and I have finally chased the cold from my bones!

    1. Moira, thanks. You're right we had great days out, but the nights.....I'm feeling my age!

  2. Col, welcome back. I mean you actually came back from what was no doubt a wonderful vacation in a wonderful place. Of course, you had to. Returning from a holiday sucks. It's like going back to school after summer vacation.

    1. Prashant, thanks. At least I'm not alone in the house with the post-holiday blues. All 5 of us are back in the routine this week with work, school and college.

    1. Margot, I'm sure I will catch up in the next week or two. It is nice to wind down though, even if you feel like a hamster on a wheel when you start back!

  5. Glad you are back. I have no desire to be in a tent anywhere.

    1. Cheers Bill. We are definitely in agreement about a tent, even though the friend who lent me the gear, says it will be better next time! There is no next time!

  6. That looks like a nice place to be in. :)

    1. Scott, we'll agree to disagree mate. I am the stage where if I see no more snow or frost or cold for the rest of my life, I'd be delighted. Global warming! Gets my vote, I'm afraid.
