Off across the pond

 I am finally getting over jet lag & have downloaded all the pics from my camera so I can post about our trip back home.
 We flew out of Newark & the day we left was freezing cold with snow everywhere.  It was a weds & all the storms had been coming up the coast mid-week so I was sure we wouldn't get away without some kind of delay.
 We were lucky & the weather was clear so we had no problems & our flight left on time.  It was an overnight flight which was not fun, very cramped so no sleep, lots of turbulence & may have involved a battle with my boots & the bathroom door.  Good thing Popster is used to me & not too easily embarrassed!  We arrived safely, early, early Thurs morning & were met by my youngest (baby) brother Nigel & my nephew Barry.  My older brother Terry & my nephew Paul had also driven up from Canterberry just to say hi so we had coffee with them before driving back to Upwood

 Nigel & Susan live in the house I grew up in
This is Nelson....... part of the welcoming committee.....he helped make us feel a little better about leaving Molly
 This is Riley aka "that short guy".  He belongs to Barry & Zoe & they live right next door
 He was being very serious & wasn't having any part of me trying to make him smile!

 Finally he decided maybe I was okay!


  1. the short guy is so lovely. My dad is once again living in the house he grew up in....odd English way of doing things!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Love Val

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!
