Blogging from Blighty

So here I am back again in England and the first 10 days or so have gone by in rather a blur to say the least.  First of all the inevitable and unavoidable jet lag.  Although I do have to admit it wasn't that awful this time - dear Mr SE used a bucket full of his Frequent Flyer points to upgrade me to business class. I know, extremely lucky and I actually enjoyed every moment of the 24 hour flight. A few 'piccie's to follow of my first days in England.  But firstly a big thank you to all who commented on my last post when I told you my news and the fact that I am now going to be living here for the next year - Eleanor, Jane, Janelle, Beth, Jules, Deja Pseu, Coffee Addict, Sydney Shop Girl, Mise, Susie, Pauline W, Natasha in Oz, Young @ heart, Faux Fuchsia, Ms Maple, Ida, Lilac in May, Raisa, Leeann and Belinda - really appreciated hearing from each and every one of you... And can I ask anyone how on EARTH do you put that little REPLY box after each comment so you can reply to each person individually?  Sorry to sound like a bit of a technical twit but I would so love to know... Anyway, back to the photographs and they have come out in no particular order a bit jumbled....
At the market in Marlborough - lots of lovely fresh veggies
Fuchsias - (real, not FAUX!) my parents' garden
Above and below the lovely Wiltshire countryside

Hanging basket - planted by my Father - at their house
Flags - patriotic style - my parents' house 

Daughter on bicycle, last weekend - me walking behind!
Above 2 photos - garden at my parents' home

Look out for my next post where I will give you directions o  how to reach my  NEW ENGLISH blog...  Meanwhile hope you are enjoying the first weekend in September - how quickly this year seems to be going.

  15. I was on holiday - in England - so am only just seeing this. Welcome back (welcome home?).

  16. It seems as though the flight from Melbourne to England would be very long, but I did not realize that it would be an entire twenty four hours. That is an extremely long time to be on a plane, at least you were in first class. These are some great photos, especially the pictures of the countryside.
