Back 'home'

I've been back in Canada for a few days now and am beginning to re-adjust. being with my family again is great, i'm especially loving getting to know my little nephews! the flight home was really long, simply because i was anxious to see my sister and nephews. i nearly had a bit of trouble at customs and they almost did a bag search (which would have taken forever as i had 3 large bags and a carry on!) but praise the Lord the guy just asked me a lot of questions and sent me on my way. after a quick meal in Toronto (yay for McDonalds!) we got in the car and headed up to Sudbury. It was a very long trip as we made some stops on the way and also because i was pretty jet-lagged! we arrived at my parents place at about midnight, but didn't get to bed till well after 1:30am!

since then i've been trying to get my body back into the right time zone, catching up on laundry and babysitting my nephews. sadly i go back to work on monday so the 'vacation' is over. :(

Finally going home

I was too busy having fun in Ireland to write but tonight is my last night in the UK so i thought I'd type up a quick note. As I say in most of my blogs, i can't believe how quickly time is flying by! Tomorrow at noon i get on a plane to go back to Canada. Where did the last 7.5 months go??? That being said i'm SO excited about going home. i've really missed my family and friends and can't wait to see my little nephews at the airport tomorrow!

my time here in the UK and Ireland has been an amazing time of fun and relaxation which was greatly needed after the last stressful month of school. My time in Ireland was far too short and i found it hard to leave my 'lovely Irish family' as i am going to call the Boyne family from now on. It was great getting re-acquinted with them all, having fun with the girls and helping them get ready for the kids clubs and other summer events that the church is putting on. it was so nice to be able to fellowship with their church again and talk to old friends. i hope it will not be another 4 years before i see them again!

well, i should get to bed as i have an early morning and a very long day tomorrow!
