I stopped writing these posts in June as I felt there was little to talk about and I was finding it harder to take 'interesting' photos.
Now we're living back in the UK it feels like 'well that's that then' No kids at home, no work to go to, no travelling abroad (for now).
But when I think back to what we've done since we arrived back in the UK on June 3rd, we've done an awful lot with 3 hotel stays (one mandatory on arrival), my 50th birthday, a wedding and plenty of family time.
It's just the two of us now, Peter has retired, I haven't worked since 2016, the kids left home in 2014 when we were living in South Africa and the last 4 years in Dubai, I'd been travelling between the UK and Dubai and moved back a full time a year ahead of Peter as Covid closed the borders on me.
I have managed to get back and forth, with long periods of isolation and lots of PCR tests, as well as being double vaccinated back in Dubai in January 2021.
It's strange being back, we don't really feel like we've returned, it's been 10 years and so much has changed about the way things happen here. We're living in our former family home, but using it very differently and we've decided to stay put and will be having a new kitchen, sheds, extension.
But for now we're gardening, doing some DIY. There was no unpacking to do as the container didn't arrive until July (more drama), the dog is getting walked and we've been catching up with family and friends.
Here's a photo a day for June:
