Back in the Blue Mountains

Am back home after 61 nights away. Perhaps I should not have complained about the heat in Frankfurt as am having to adjust to a cold spell here and find the heaters stored away last winter. Least said about the flights the better, had dinner again in Bangkok with Tony and Somphong. Stayed with my sister and brother-in-law in Sydney and Bev drove me home yesterday. The car sulked by refusing to start until the NRMA (road service) man arrived when it started immediately (probably fuel had dried out, not the battery, he said). My clever plans to thwart burglars by hiding the car keys and the TV remote just had me searching madly through the house for them.
Now to get back to normal. It is nice not to have to dress before breakfast nor go out to find somewhere for dinner and today I am just not going to go anywhere but I have yet to face having to wash the dishes myself again. Thanks for the comments and prayers over the last 2 months. Finally the view from my house across the Mid-Mountains.

Glad you're safely home and had a wonderful trip. Thanks for the view, now I can imagine you having your morning coffee - without the "dressing up"!

Brian, welcome home. Sorry I couldn't be there to greet you.

It would be wonderful to receive a greeting in person from you grandmere whether at my home or your home or somewhere in between. Perhaps someday.
