Back at the ranch...

...after a very long journey across the world! What a journey it was, to say the least. We left Newcastle Airport at 1.45pm on Monday afternoon, arrived in Dubai at midnight, spent the next 10 hours wondering the airport back and forth (we were going to book into the Airport Hotel for a while but at US$100 an hour we changed our mind) and then 14 hours to Melbourne and the last leg of two hours in Melbourne Airport and one hour home to Adelaide!!! We soooo enjoyed going to sleep on Wednesday night. So now it is back to the grindstone and routine of South Australian life :)) The picture is of us coming in over the coast of Adelaide.

While I was in the UK, I started cousin in law off on a blog - she is called Gloria so if you have a moment go and take a peek at her site. She is not a quilter like most of us, but does enjoy doing some sewing and craft work. Besides that, she is a lovely lady and I know you will enjoy reading her blog.
If you read one of my earlier posts, you would of seen that I thought Wing Walking might be a good job for me to look into. Well, the plane trip from Dubai to Melbourne gave me my first hint of what to do if I take up this position. As you will see by the wording painted on the wing of our plane! LOL

Well, off the bed now to see if I can overcome the horrible jet lag I have this time round. So night night from me.
