Just a quick post to let you know I’m back and will be blogging again soon. I am slightly jet-lagged after the epic 30+ hour journey home.
I did consider blogging while I was away. The thought of tapping out posts on my iPhone did not fill me with joy so I decided to wait.
I do have soooo much to tell you. Rather than write a huge post, I might break it up into several posts over the next couple of weeks.
In a nutshell in the past three weeks:-
- I’ve been to London, Paris, Madrid.
- I’ve bought fabric, patterns, notions, yarn.
- I attended The EPIC London Bloggers Meet-up.
- I went to the theatre, had a back stage tour and saw Helen Mirren in The Audience.
- I met many gorgeous bloggers and stitchers.
- I finished a skirt.
- I started & finished knitting a jumper.
- I’m participating in Me Made May 2013.
- I’ve got a gorgeous Nautical Craft Swop to share.
- and a Sewing Surprises Swop to share!
Is that ALL you have been doing in the past three weeks Lizzy??
You are a tough crowd to please! I personally thought finishing a jumper in less than three weeks while travelling between four countries was quite a feat! Never mind I will tell you more soon.
I’ve missed you!
wow you were seriously busy if you finished a jumper and a skirt, amongst everything else. Welcome home m’dear and it sounds as though you did indeed have a marvelous time. Sleep well. We can wait a little longer for you to recover enough to marshal your thoughts 🙂
Agreed! I’m a little amazed at how much I packed into three weeks!
So good to have you back on terra firma Lizzy. Can’t wait to hear all about your o/s escapades!
It’s lovely to be home. I missed it quite a lot this time. Fortunately I had plenty of things to occupy my time 🙂
Looks great! Can’t wait to see more!
I’m in London now. You make me wish I was going on to Spain… 😉
Sorry about that – however it was truly awesome! Might have been the company I was keeping, lots of eating and drinking!
Welcome home, what an epic trip!! Can’t wait to hear more….sleep and not sleep well 😉
It was epic! And exhausting – it got more crazy as the days went by! Will write more soon.
I do love a busy bee and I sooooo loved meeting you. Most honoured I was guv! Looking forward to your posts. Particularly on Madrid. Rest up Lizzy. Lots of love xxx
Busy bee – now that’s so much nicer than ‘headless chook’ or ‘blue-arsed fly’ (charming Aussie term). I looooved meeting you. Wish I was coming back to London! However NY beckons in 2014!!
Welcome home Lizzy. I’m glad it all went well, and I’m so looking forward to hearing all about it! Hope your jet lag is brief.
The jetlag is ok – except at 3am in the morning and about 4pm in the afternoon. Then it’s a killer!!
I’m impressed not only with the travelling, but finishing a jumper in that time, while that busy is wowser!!!! Hope you enjoyed your hols!!!!
I did not think that I would manage to finish it so quickly. It just seemed to grow and grow and grow!
welcome home indeed. And you did all that extracurricular stuff while travelling? Yikes! I think you must be related to Doctor Who. Are you sure you weren’t travelling in the Tardis (I can think of no other way you’d have had sufficient hours for that amount of output)?
Actually a Tardis would have been handy and perhaps I could have fitted even more in!
We’ve missed your blogging too, but getting to meet you in London was amazing! Glad you’re safely home ;o)
It was delightful to meet you! I’ve been patting that vintage pattern this morning and wondering what fabric would work…
If you missed blogging, you weren’t busy enough! Sounds like you had a whirlwind of a time. Can’t wait to see your posts, but take your time, we can wait. You were missed.
Awww thank you! I’m looking forward to getting back to my sewing machine & computer again.
Cannot wait to see your posts and hear about all of your lovely adventures!!
I’m still trying to unpack & put away all my loot!
I’ve just found your blog and all I can say is “Wow!”. Looking forward to reading about all your exploits. Cheers, Meredithe
Thank you Meredithe!
Welcome Home! So glad you had a great trip 🙂
Welcome home Lizzy. I’m glad you survived the flight(s), 30hrs is a horrible thought! Can’t wait to hear more about your travelling adventures when you’ve caught up with yourself!
When I got to Singapore I discovered the next flight had been cancelled. Fortunately they transferred me to an earlier flight into Sydney and then I also was transferred to an earlier flight home – saving myself 6 hours! Yay!
I think I’m ‘nearly’ over the jetlag now.
Ahk! I’m so jealous of your trip abroad. I’ve never been to Europe and I’m dying to go!
Whow, I am so impressed with what you packed into three weeks (and a little jealous too 😉 ). I’m looking forward to reading more about your travels!
Welcome home! Glad you had such a lovely trip! 🙂
I am glad you got home safely. It was lovely meeting you in the shop, I have enjoyed reading through your blog and it has inspired me to not give up on the skirt I have started (tricky hidden zip!). I look forward to reading more about your adventures. 🙂
Welcome Home Lizzy, sounds like a whirlwind trip. I’m actually currently traveling myself. In San Francisco presently. It’s fun to travel but I always love getting home too.
Hope you are having a great time.
It is nice to go home. I got quite homesick this time, missed my family quite badly!
Welcoma home and good to hear your holiday was so much fun! Can’t wait to read all about it 🙂
