... blog readers. It has been nice to know we have not been writing entirely to ourselves and whilst we have been so far from home it has been reassuring to know that friends and family have been following our progress around the World. It has been great reading your comments so thank you for your interest. Now it really is time to get back to normal, weed the garden, fix the leaks in the conservatory, finish the washing and ironing and decide what to do with the rest of our ...
