I'm back!

Well, actually... I was back home 1,5 week ago. But I had such a hard time getting back to everyday routine.... I really didn't want to leave Italy, we had such a wonderful vacation and even though we were away for almost 4 weeks I didn't feel like going home at all. Life in Italy is so relaxed!

Anyway, I wanted to hold on to that feeling a little longer and decided not to do anything that was not really neccesary untill the kids had to go to school again, wich was last monday. Unfortunatly the minute you walk through your door there are things that HAVE to be done, MUST be done, and NEED to be done, if only for the piles of laundry we brought home...

I didn't get on my computer untill the end of the week because I knew updating my blog and answering e-mail would mean "back to work" straight away.
I didn't even feel like scrapping although I had my vacation pictures printed in my mailbox already on wednesday.
I tried a little scrapping in the weekend but I just couldn't get started, just sat there staring at my pics and paper.

I finally got a LO done last night, ironical enough about our last vacation day. When we got to the beach that afternoon for the last time, walking through the water, soaking up that wonderful view I felt really sad we had to say goodbey. Looking at these pictures I think my son felt the same way.


Ah well.... I guess before we know it we'll be used to being in a hurry and busy, busy, busy again, even though we try to be a little more relaxed.

And meanwhile we'll make plans for next year already :)

In the next couple of days I'll try to catch up with all your blogs, wich wlll take some time regarding to my bloglines, but it will be fun to read what you've been doing in the last couple of weeks!

Hope you all had a great vacation too!!

Birgit

Ik ben ook juist terug van een weekje Turkije. Ik heb ook geen zin om aan de dagelijkse routine te beginnen, maar we kunnen niet anders hé. Ik moet weer beginnen met lesgeven om maandag 3 september. Nog eventjes vakantie dus.
