Sorry, but this week is going to be short and sweet. Last time I was here I was looking forward to heading away on holidays. Now I want to talk about home. There really is no place like it. The thought of a home-cooked meal and crawling under the sheets of my very own bed sounds like heaven to me. No longer having to live out of a suitcase and being surrounded by all my own things... I can't wait.
My trip to the US has been amazing. I really didn't expect anything less. Even though my child seemed to succumb to the cold weather and picked up a cold and a cough and has now passed it to me, we've still managed to enjoy ourselves.
Catching up with good friends was a massive highlight. Seeing Andi Anderson and her wonderful hubby, along with Freddy MacKay and her family makes me want to stay so badly.
But home is calling (and my bank account is crying).
So tomorrow my child and I start our journey back. First with a 15 hour flight to Sydney, then on Saturday with another 4 hour flight to Darwin...
So, Thank You America for having me, but I'm looking forward to going home, even if I'm not looking forward to the trip.
