Less of a zombie now!

After a 24 hour flight, and fighting sleep until as long as I could, I finally gave in at 5:30 last night and went to bed. Ah, what bliss to sleep, and in my own bed :-)

I woke at 6:30 which is ridiculously early, but I had had 13 hours sleep, so I feel much more with it!

There was some very exciting post waiting for me.  a pressie from Jackie, and one from the BQL Secret Santa, both of which have been put under the tree (albeit with a bit of squishing on the way!)

Also . . .

[Hold on while we travel back in time.  One of the blogs that I follow is Block Lotto - each month, the list Mom, Sophie, introduces us to a block, usually with a colour scheme.  We can make as many or as few of these as we like, and each one that we submit a photo of counts as a ticket for the month's lotto.  I actually remembered the let Sophie know that I would be in the air when she drew the names, so if I won I wouldn't be able to acknowledge for a few days - just as well I did as I was one of the winners {VBG}]

. . . now back to the present . . . there were four squishies, each with three Scrappy Round The World blocks.

Thank you so much to Cathy Ann, Celine, Debra and Kate - lovely blocks, and I'm really looking forward to playing with the blocks and deciding how to arrange them


  1. Welcome home! I hope the rest of your scrappy trips lotto blocks arrive soon.

  2. Welcome back, and congrats on the win!

  3. Welcome back on our side of the pond !!

  4. Welcome back home. I like the blocks you've received from the Block Lotto, they'll be fun to play with over the Christmas hols.

  5. So glad you made it home all safe and sound....AND with some good mail to open on your return!!

  6. Good to have you back safely Benta. Interesting to note your 'to do' list - I have been unable to post my Xmas makes because family and friends will see them - have you banned them from your blog?

  7. Welcome back! Looking forward to see what you do with those blocks.
