hello again

Yay. I'm back in the land of internet access again!  Missed my blogging and yours too.

So a lovely flower to say hi again.  An orchid found growing in the fields at my sister's home.  Just a few centimeters tall and peeking through the long grass.

We've been on a whirl wind tour of the UK.  Leaving a not so sunny NL, we drove to Calais in France to the Eurotunnel and once aboard, 35 minutes later we were in the UK. First stop for a few days with family in Tring, Hertforshire.  Next stop was to my sister near to Edinburgh for 5 days.  Then 5 days at a cottage in the beautiful countryside of Derbyshire and finally back south to Brighton before heading home to NL once again. Yes, we sure did clock up some kms these past 15 days.  And we can hardly believe our luck that the sun has been shining on us nearly every day!

Its been fun seeing the kiddos playing with their cousins and enjoying all kinds of fun summer activities. Visiting farms, swimming, rock climbing, making new friends, collecting bugs, playing outdoors late into the evenings, windsurfing, sailing and picnics in the sun.  Not to mention the bucket loads of icecream that has been consumed!

Can't wait to catch up with all my favourite blogs and hear how your summers have been going too.  First  though, I need to unpack!
