It took me twenty-eight hours to fly from Australia to England...
I was there twelve nights
then it was twenty-four hours (whooo hooo!) to get back.
That's hardly time enough to get over the jet lag... Is it?
It was a busy, busy, busy
whistle-stop* tour to catch up with family
and wave off my daughter on her African adventure.
Happily we also celebrated a couple of birthdays, mine included.
We started with a day out in Burford,
a picturesque Cotswold market town
chosen for some good clothes shopping and a pub lunch.
|Cotswold stone cottages in Burford|
and stayed in Bristol, Stratford on Avon, London
and I even managed to buy a house!
Now that's a story I'm saving for a rainy day...
Here are some of my favourite blue photos from the trip.
Thatched cottages which look good at any time of year,
look even better when Spring is in the air
and the daffodils are dancing in the sunlight outside the front door.
|Daffodils and thatched cottages, so British!|
With the colourful terrace houses of Redland and
the brightly painted house boats on the water.

Hmmm people are obviously not queuing up to visit Liberia!
My daughter gave in her passport,
a letter of support from her organisation, two passport photos,
One hundred and sixty pounds,
yes it's not cheap to visit the second most poorest country in the world!
and was told to return the next day...
The next day she collected her passport, easy
and was now all ready to work
in a remote community in Liberia.
Our family is now spread all over the world.
One in America, one in Liberia, one in England and two in Australia
But next week we will have four of us in New York!!
I'll sing to that!
