Just 4 days left!

This has been an amazing month, I don't need to tell you how it feels to come home after 10 years and to be able to hug and kiss your loved ones, to sit down at the table with a cup of coffee and reminisce and talk about what you have been through.

Now there are just a few days left and I'm ready to go home to my house and my pugs but also sad to leave behind my family again.....there's plans to return next year, but still, it's not easy to leave.

I wanted to come in quickly and say hi and let you know that I'll be back home this friday and as soon as I get everything unpacked and back to normal, I will start sharing my journey and photos...LOTS and LOTS of photos. I'll also try to catch up with everyone.

Today we're taking it easy, we're going nowhere, doing nothing and just about to immerse ourselves in boxes of old photographs so that I can pick the ones I want to take with me.

I hope you're all doing well, I wish I could stop by each individual blog and say hi, but I can't. I do want to send you hugs from Africa and thank you for always stopping by even though I'm away and leaving such sweet comments.

Oh and I'm bringing back something from Africa to do a contest with, whoever wins will have their very own special memento all the way from South Africa.

Hugs and kisses,
