Did you miss me?

Have you missed me?

I've just got back from a well-earned break down in Kent. Apparantly whilst I've been away, my emails have gone haywire, so if you have emailed me, and haven't had a reply, just let me know and I'll get back to you.

What a lovely time I had. It was just me and hubs, and we travelled around a bit. We got to Port Lympne wildlife park, which is just fabbydabbydozee! I love it there. There are gorilla's, monkeys, big cats. Well worth a visit if you're down that way. We have been there before, but just have to revisit. I have plenty of photies to share too.

We also sat up on top of Cheriton hills overlooking the Tunnel entrance. God that place is soooo busy! There wasn't a minute's break from one train coming in and others going out. What a fascinating place. Again, we've been there before many times as Paul used to farm the ground that the tunnel was built on. Happy times...

We bought fish and chips and sat up on the Leas in Folkestone to eat them.. yummy they were too, but not worth the pain I had the following morning from eating the batter.

We travelled around the heart of Kent, across the Romney Marsh, Hythe, Dymchurch and called off just outside to buy some Discovery apples and plums, fresh from the farm... booootiful! Oh how I missed me lickle plum tree whilst I was away.

We also had a trip to Alkham Park, which is just stunning. Full of wildlife and beautiful walks.

The World of Butterflies is just great. Not as big as the ones here in our area, but still lovely. It broke my heart to see a little beautiful brown butterfly fly straight into a cob web and couldn't get out.. we couldn't reach it either. Sob sob. There were some lovely large butterflies in there, some of which posed quite happily for their photos, others didn't.

And then home.

Back to my children, back to my pupsters, who'd missed me and hubs an awful lot - and are who now fast asleep as they have been most of the evening. (catching up on their sleep as they didn't whilst we were away). Hehe.

The house was so tidy. The girls had had a blitz, but warned me that mum's home, so it can go back to normal now - NOT!! I got dinner cooked too, steak and salad - yum. Dishwasher is loaded ready to go, washing is done, and my beautiful bouquet of flowers which were here to greet me when I got home are now in their vase.

A fantastic few days... Thank you Paul for being the love of my life. Thank you Carley and Martina for taking care of everything whilst we were away. Thank you Leyton for walking the furballs - I love you all. xx

  3. Hi, Jo, it's been a while since I visited your blog (too much going on this summer), but I'm so glad I dropped by; I love your photos of your dogs and your family members - and your cards are quite lovely, too.
