I've always known that my life in New Zealand is more organised than my Scottish life because I have croquet and Family and other commitments apart from anything else. However I hadn't bargained on the fact that my first week back would be so full on and fully occupied. Today I took the day off and caught up with The Cottage and Blogland and now all I have to do is conquer the inertia that has overtaken me as far as actually writing a blog post is concerned.
I wondered whether my six months without picking up a croquet mallet would mean that I lost my rhythm and ability. The answer would seem to be that I should take six months off more frequently because I have played ten games since I got back and won 9 of them.
In many ways it's as if I haven't been away:
|Jacquie Hudson is still presenting her live Countdown (Supermarket) morning slot|
|Thursday's weather forecast. Of course it wasn't like that today - it was warm but cloudy all day.|
|My first Christmas Card (from the UK) arrived the day after I did.|
|The first lot of cornflake crunch has been made and devoured already|
