Epilogue to an Adventure


There was once a woman who made a mistake.

Luckily, she realised before it was too late
so she left a message for her friends
and went home.

When she arrived she looked around
and knew that she had done the right thing.

There was work to be done
and changes that must be made
but they could wait for another day.

She flung open the windows
to let in the sunshine
and blow away the cobwebs.

It is so nice to have you home.

Lovely to have a holiday - that is where we get to try out being someone different. Sometimes we even get to bring back bits of that new person home with us.

Here it is termed 'adding new bricks to my life's building.'

It is good practise for me to work with my blog layout!

It's good that you're back but it never felt as if you left.

Alice, hello....in the short time I visited you at Limejuice i always got there via Magpie files anyhow because I am lazy and had not changed the link. So from a purely personal, lazy-arse level, thankyou for coming back so I don't have to click twice to find you.

It seems that sometimes, being slack about updating one's links and blogroll can be a very good thing.

Thank you for saving me a job. Welcome home.

blackbird said...

Well thank god for Miss M.
I telling K that I didn't see the difference between here and there - I should have spoken directly to Miss M..

Dragonfly said...

It's good to take a break elsewhere, but better still to come home...

Welcome back...

JuliaB said...

he he.. i often think of starting another blog to catalogue another part of "me" and then realise that Me is Me - all of me .. so one blog fits all! Welcome back! Luckily I didn't delete you from my blogroll! x

kristina said...

Glad to have you back home. And beautifully said (as always). K x

Karen J said...

Happy to "see" you wherever you may be!!!!!

Lynn said...

Miss M rocks, as usual. I want to be her when I grow up. (Can I just say that this post and the previous one actually made me teary? Are ANYONE's hormones as screwy as mine?!?!?!?!)

One little problem: my blog was listed on your Lime Juice blogroll...just for what it's worth, and all...)

Jackie said...

Hooray!!

Lina said...

dottycookie said...

Welcome home, MrsM ;-)Hope you're here for a good long time to come.

And MissM - you're a star!

MrM said...

La donna e mobile

Thank you to MissM for her input. Such a sensible daughter.

I think that the only time MrsM is going cold turkey is at Christmas now.

Suse said...

Yes I too was wondering what the difference was. Apart from the fact that I appear on one blogroll but not the other, that is. Hope I haven't offended somehow.

;)

It's just geography...I imagine magpies fly over many different lands in their lifetime, sometimes landing, sometimes not.

Just when I was planning to lurk under another anonymous pseudonym !

I updated the link in my blog list.
About your comment in my blog( thank you for your visit and comment):
When are you thinking to come to Portugal? Don't forget Sintra. It's easy to come because is quite near Lisbon and you won't regret it.

eurolush said...

I'd visit you anywhere, Alice...

Sian said...

Glad you have settled. But I am quite happy to keep on following you about the place :o)
