Im Back

This  is our humble abode

Its compact & bijou (thats posh speak for small)

But i like where we live.. we are rural.. and away from noise and smog and chavs!

This is the back of the house....

No beach ... but hey.. ill cope..

Nelson is a mere 20 miles away from us ... we have been to see him a couple of times...

he is bonkers.. and i miss him very much..

Only a mere10 weeks till he escapes quarantine (12th Oct 2010)

Nelson seems pretty happy in his small area...

i dont thin k hes ac tually bothered about being there and the ladies there seem to love him...

Im glad to be back

just feels like ive never been away!

but i have a thousand happy memories to remind me that i have xxxxxxxxx

Life after Brunei...............Wiltshire life!!

We made it! we have arrived back in the UK...

The flight was uneventful... if not a bit cold... the food on the flight was wholly inedible... even though i ordered the vegetarian option as its safer! usually!

one highlight was i jokingly asked if they had tea tharik...  the guy laughed and handed me the usual weak watery tea.
then just before we were due to land he came over and gave me a tea tharik... how sweet! (literally)

the Landing for me was VERY emotional.. last time i was landing in the UK was when my Dad was poorly.. just before he died.. made me realise for a split second.. Dads not here! that made me cry!

I think i spent the last 15 months pretending .. no, kidding myself he would still be here! bad idea i guess...

Well the hotel is nice.. the room is teeny tiny but its clean and the view over the fields with the deer and the tractors is very nice..its very rural... im in my element sat at this window..

Yes I will miss the beach at Muara
Yes i will miss the wildlife in the garden & at supersave
Yes i will definately miss the Ladies Hash on a Tuesday
and YES i will miss the friends that i made whilst in Brunei.
BUT i wont miss the life in the goldfish bowl, and the ensuing pile of pooh that came with living IN that said Goldfish bowl.
My sister told me whilst she was staying with me in Brunei.. there are 2 types of people..
Drains and Radiators!
sadly the Drain variety of 'friend' got the better of me / US after a while..
BUT the radiators came into their own, and without them the Drains could have won...
BUT they didnt..
so to all you Radiators out there..
I thank you..
YOU will be missed ....

Today is the start of the next chapter in our lives....... minus the Drain!!
