Just to bring you up to date…

Did you hear that thud?  It was the sound of me coming down to earth after a fabulous holiday.

Two weeks ago I was sipping prosecco, and riding a bike around (mostly) sunny Ravenna in Italy – not at the same time!IMG_3846 IMG_7079 One week ago I was back in Australia curled up in front of a fire in the Blue Mountains, enjoying our final week of holidays reading a great book (more about that in a later post) and sleeping off the jet-lag.IMG_7121  IMG_7125 This magnificent view across the valley was shrouded in mist until just before we packed up and left for home. IMG_7123This week life has quickly returned to what passes for normal around here,  but for now we are feeling refreshed and have a new spring in our step.


  1. Hi I have been following the time you have had away and would love to know the name of the cruise company you travelled with. I donot mind if you contact me personally. Jeannette

  2. Di, your holiday has sounded fabulous. Thanks for sharing the trip with us. I feel like I have hit a thud of reality now you're home also-lol.
    The photos on this post are fabulous especially the one on the bike.

  3. Hi Di! How cute you look on that bike! What a fabulous way to see Italy. We did it by train and on foot. Biking seems like a whole lot more fun.
    Thank you for responding to my flat tire post. I believe I was thinking the cost would be more in line with what you paid. Any way, it's been interesting to see the differences.
    Take care!

  4. What a great holiday - I have really enjoyed the holiday posts. But it's always lovely to be home, isn't it.

  5. What a glorious, well-deserved time away you and Boak enjoyed. All your pictures point toward fabulous views and experiences. Enjoy the freshness of being at home again, in your own bed, and - more importantly - in your sewing room. Blessings!

  6. What a fantastic holiday you have had - and how generous of you to share it on your blog. Love the bike lady!!!
    The cottage up in the Blue Mountains looks so cute, and the view amazing - just goes to show what we have in Aussie here on our doorstep.
    Your new Blog header looks wonderful - go girl!!

  7. And that groan you heard was me being jealous. :) blessings, marlene

  8. I really enjoyed your travel posts. Thanks for stopping by and wishing Orlando a Happy Birthday!
