No Place Like Home
« on: August 05, 2007, 02:28:20 PM »
So...it's been 2 weeks since I tapped together my oxblood-red doc martins (I don't own ruby slippers!) and absconded from the sleepy isle of Greeks back to the not-so-sleepy isle of Brits.

And I’m tickled pink to be able to report…I am so so sooo chilled. A very happy chicky I is indeed. :) Have been enjoying time with family and friends; doing stuff like going for walks with dad in the mornings, cooking with mum (well, more watching mum cook ;D…yes, Miss Melia is lapping up being spoiled!), taking nephews to cinema, catching up with friends à la phone and also over lunch et al.

Yesterday, I had the delightful pleasure of meeting Aidmeds very own ‘englishgirl’ – we met up with Chris (ManchesterUK) for lunch and it was utterly FAB. Lots of eating, chatting and giggling – all truly fantabulous stuff for the soul! ;) Then me and Little Miss English went on a mad shopping spree doing girly stuff, followed by dinner. Just normal run-of-the-mill fun stuff.

I know such normal stuff is probably no biggie to many here, but to me – as someone who has been pretty isolated and very lonely and who hasn’t done much normal stuff for a loooong time – I am absolutely basking in the sheer wonderfulness of now being able to.

---Big Happy Sigh--- :)

Today I went out for a yummy Chinese with my parents; this afternoon I was taking photos of my babies playing in the garden; tonight I’m off to visit more family. Tralala!

I forgot to take photos yesterday mid shopping frenzy (surprise surprise!) but I do have a few snapshots of my babies.

Me and kitty cats are in full agreement with Miss Dorothy: There’s no place like home.

Melia :-*

It's good to hear you are enjoying being back it's certainly obvious to me that your a happy bunny at the moment!  I had a good time yesterday as well and it was a pleasure to meet Niki for the first time too.  All I can say is when these two get together in San Francisco it won't know whats hit it!

I'm sure your parents are quite a comfort to you in your golden years. :P I do look forward to meeting them in the future. Home is nice.

Sounds comfy, warm and nice bonding vibes, Melia. So looking forward to meeting you in person............. All you English folk, in fact. I could listen for hours to the accents of British, Austrailian/New Zealand, and also of the French.
Have more sweet days like this!

Welcome back.  Thanks for the sunshine.

 :D I know! Hasn't it been simply splendid since I got back?! 8) Although I must warn you, I'm off on my travels again later this week, so if it suddenly starts peeing kitties and puppies again you'll know why! ::)

Muchas gracias for all your welcomes and kind comments people.

Sweetas,

There is no place like home esp when you have not been there a while. Oh how I wish I were home and could stay home... I hope you keep enjoying and posting.

Hope to see you in London soon,

It's good to know you are happy with the move back, Melia.

Sometimes we don't realise how much we miss the simple pleasures until we don't have them anymore.

I'm sure you feel like you never left home. I know that's how I use to feel when I went on journeys way back when.
