Home....but only just

Hi everyone....the wanderer has returned after a fandabbidosie week in NYC....we walked we shopped and laughed 'til we dropped but  it was sad to say goodbye to my most favourite city in the world and the wonderful friendly New Yorkers......

lots more fun tales to share with you all....500 pics just happened to find themselves onto my camera so it will take some time to edit them all...but before we know it's time to leave and boy did we have a struggle to make it back home...arrived at Heathrow yesterday morning after a long sleepless night flight to discover that our lunchtime flight to Aberdeen had been cancelled due to the horrendous wintry weather and little chance of any flights to Aberdeen for the rest of the day...I so didn't want to spend another night in a hotel even if it was at BA's expense but thankfully they decided to give it one more go and squeezed us onto the last flight at 3.50pm...we eventually took off after a 6 hour delay finally touching down with a massive skid in Aberdeen.   Crikey for someone who is used to bad winter weather in this neck of the woods I can't believe how much snow has fallen since I left and the drive from the airport was equally hair raising.  But we made it and it is so good to be home...not having slept for two days...I slept like a log last night with The Furry Boy snuggled up on my feet...I missed him so much but the holiday is over and it's back to work....lots of stuff popped onto the crafty list of things to do while I was away and as always everything is we will be marooned in the cubbyhole for the foreseeable future and in this weather that's no hardship.
Catch up with you all later and a big thank you for all your lovely comments while I was away.
One little memory of my fun time in NYC

Hugs Kath xxx

Hi Kath - nice to have you back safe and sound. I'm sure you and your sister have had a great time and have some lovely memories of your trip but it's lovely to be back home isn't it? We will all enjoy hearing about your exploits!!! I bet buddy will be running rings around you and keep checking to see you're still at home. Take care.

Hi Kath

So lovely to have you back and glad you did get back safe and sound. I bet you enjoyed your first night back in your own bed - something so nice about that! I know what you mean about missing the furry boy - when I'm away from Tilly I too miss her terribly!

Looking forward to seeing what creations come out of the cubbyhole this week!

Take care
