Hi everyone, gosh I've missed you all.

I'm just about to go out and get some food, we have nothing in the house as we got rid of everything before we left back in mid December.

We arrived back here today to 34C and it's gross, hot draining heat. I need a shower and my stomach is grumbling as I haven't eaten since about 6.00am and it's now 2.00 in the afternoon.

I've got both air conditioners on and have just been clearing out all the emails and doing some filing etc.
I think I'll wait till tomorrow to see Mum as I don't want to have to go out too much, luckily the grocery store is only 300 metres away. I need a shower and I want to wash my hair too, you know what it's like when you've been on a plane or touring etc and you don't have all your normal toiletries!

Anyway, I'm back and can't wait to start my theme things for my annual ladies Christmas luncheon.

We bought some gorgeous napkins in Rudesheim, Germany which gave me the idea - Gingerbread men!
No peeking Meganne!!!!!

Love you all and I've given flowers to all the Projects.

Thanks Sue for putting up my Secret Santa Tea towels with the Roosters on them. Love Chris

Nice to have you back. Hugs

Welcome home Chris, glad you arrived safe and sound. You're right it's hot, humid and horrible her in Australia right now, though I suspect some of our friends in the northern hemisphere would happily swap the heat for the winter storms they are currently getting. Bet you missed all your toys (machines etc), I always do.
Hugs Lynne

Thanks Laura, it was fantastic, but coming home to really high 30's is exhausting! I loved the cold, at least you can rug up, when it's this hot, it doesn't matter what you do, as you still feel hot and sticky! Love Chris

Glad to have you back! Wish we had some of your warmth. I have been so cold this last week, I am sick. I have enjoyed seeing all the pics you posted even though I'm late to comment on some. I know you must have had the time of your life, but it's always good to come Home.
Can't wait to see your gingerbread napkins! I bet they will be gorgeous, as is all the things you make for your ladies. Meg will just have to skim over your post when you show all of us!-lol-Toogie

I'll try to Toogie. ;-)

Sorry Toogie, they are paper napkins - but the design is what caught my eye. So I'll have to put my thinking cap on as to what to make with a similar design. I can't wait, love Chris
