I use “today” loosely for this post, as we’ve existed in 3 timezones today and will have been up for over 30 hours by the time we head to bed, as we’re desperately trying to stay up to a reasonable UK time to get on top of the jet lag! This morning we woke up… Continue reading Homeward Bound
We started our day with a bit of a lie in before heading out to the Corner Bakery at the Trails shopping centre to get ourselves a coffee, and a warm cinnamon roll for me, and put the world to rights!
