I have been home from my amazing holiday for a full week now & think that PHD is setting in (post holiday depression). I had such a great time with Melanie, catching up with so many of our friends, making new friends, seeing new sights, doing exciting things & the weather (for the most part) was great – it was a real holiday & I enjoyed being spoilt by everyone.
I have unpacked my bags, given out some presents, updated my blog, looked at my photos & sent thank you postcards, so it really is all over now.
Do you think I am being a bit sooky or is it normal to feel a bit down after such a great holiday??
When I arrived into Sydney last week it was a grey & overcast day. As I flew into Canberra I couldn’t help myself from thinking how dull everything looked, grey, bleak & wintery. I knew that would be the case before I left & even mentioned in my blog that I would notice the difference when I came back, so why was I surprised? I think that I had enjoyed the sunshine, warmth, new spring growth, the colours, flowers & greenery everywhere & wanted it to continue forever! I do think it was the nicest time of year to travel, although we have enjoyed the other seasons when we’ve visited.
We have been very busy since I got back with a full weekend of wedding celebrations, meetings, dinners out, friends over, catch up phone calls & a short week of work!! I suffered from jet lag all week & don’t really know how I have managed everything.
It seems that most people have read at least some of my blog & so know what I’ve been up to, this is good & bad. Good because I don’t have to remember the stories to tell but bad in that they already know about my trip and I don’t need to tell them anything.
Grant managed very well without me and thankfully has continued with the meal preparation as I am no use after a day at work. I will get back into things eventually!
Just today I read a newspaper article on something that I missed while in Denmark & Sweden – walking tours of places used in the filming of Borgen, The Killing & The Bridge – all excellent Scandinavian tv shows which we have become addicted to. I’ll add them to the list for next time!
It is good to be home but in some ways I wish I could travel like that forever.
