All good things come to an end...

I've been back in New Zealand since Thursday... my body clock is beginning to work it's way around to New Zealand time (so hopefully I'll stop waking at 4 in the morning LOL).  So far I'm still happy living in the after-glow of my holiday and haven't succumbed to post-holiday blues like OH.

I've been looking through my 700 or so holiday photos and I just didn't know which ones to share, so here are a couple of randomly chosen shots.

This is the resort we stayed at in Cyprus.  I loved Cyprus... we arrived just as a red sun set in a dusty sky - what a welcome!  Cyprus was hot like I've never felt hot before - but they had great shopping, great entertainment, great food, great people, great weather...

Here's a beautiful Oranguatan at the Singapore Zoo.  (This one's for you Steve Irwin "the Crocodile Hunter" who sadly died today).

This is the house OH and I spontaneously purchased in Rye, Sussex (oh did I mention, in our dreams!?!!).Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Here's a rare photo of me with my eyes open, on the beautiful Antrim coast in Northern Ireland.

I will add some more photos to my Webshots album over the weekend.  If anyone is interested I will post a link once done.

Unfortunately, I didn't do any stitching on holiday - but I did raid JEMs in Canterbury, and picked up a few magazines on my travels too - so I was thinking about stitching, if nothing else.

I have briefly looked at a few blogs, it looks like there's been lots of stitching and blogging going on - I have a lot to catch up with!

Wow these pictures are great - I'm glad you've had a good time. I've just come back from a week in Scotland and boy do I have post holiday blues or what?! You've done very well not to get them so far.

I nearly keeled over when I heard the news about Steve Irwin today - I loved his shows. Have a good week :) xx
