I have been home now for 4 days - it feels a lot longer and a lot shorter. In that time I have done 8 loads of washing, dried & put most of it away - although have a pile of ironing for tomorrow. I have also unpacked 7 cases, put everything away in its place got back into a routine of life.
Most importantly I have edited over 800 photos from our trip and completed 66 digital pages of our Disneyland album. I love scrapbooking, since I discovered it in 2000, I have been hooked. When digital scrapbooking came on the scene I really wasn't even interested in trying it out. Then I gave it a go - and I LOVE IT!
I love the ability to switch on my computer and do just a page without the mess, I love the creativity of pulling together different pages and styles and using the pre-made or my own designs. Most of all I love the speed at which I can get my photos into albums and ready to share with family & friends.
This morning however, I decided that my house & garden were also calling, so after lunch, I dragged out the ride-on mower and did the grass, then I tackled the driveway with the hedge trimmer. We can now fit the cars in easily. Matt came out, did some hand mowing for me and picked up all my trimmings. I also used Roundup on all the weeds that have grown in the pavings. The rain has been wonderful for the garden, but boy does it need some work.
So finally at 5.48pm, I have showered and am about to get a few things ready for a visit from our lovely friends, Rosemary, Olivia & Isobel.
Life is good and I have realised that when I set my mind to something I achieve miracles - I guess that is what I call succeeding.
