Thet (brown) Eagle has landed !!!

Well... I'm back.... very tanned, very chillaxed, and very sad to leave Africa.. I'm also very blooming cold !!!! LOL
Had three amazing weeks in Tanzania, visiting Selous Game Reserve, Beho Beho... Dar Es Salaam, and finally onto Pemba Island, Fundu Lagoon, for the remaining two weeks.... OMG... FANTASTIC is not the word.. it exceeded ALL of my expections and more.
I will be ... of course... adding a few piccies along the way .. as soon as my travelling buddy Pam gets them back to me,... between us... we managed to take around 3000... HOWEVER... don't panic... I will not be showing all... and dont all go.. thank goodness at once ! lol.
Once I have them and have chosen a few specials to show you I will add them here. Not that I want anyone to be envious of course :)....
I was very sad to leave behind, my son, and daughter in law, the sun, sea, sand, snorkling, diving, and so many good friends that I have made on this visit, plus renewing past friendships... there are a few that have become VERY special to me.. and it was a very tearful farewell. Still , one never knows when or if I might go back !!!! Never say never.
I finally managed to get a tan.. not sure how, as never sunbathed.. as around 40 deg. just a tad hot.. felt like sitting on a griddle LOL... (yes I did burn my bum).. snorkling ! dont ask !!!!! and no, dont worry, there are NO photos of that... thank goodness.
So.... I would like to say.... hello to all my friends here... and I will be back in the next few days with piccies... and then, when I feel I have bored you enough.. I will be commencing with the card making....
Also.... I would like this opportunity to mention that.... There is a new blog to keep a watchful eye on... and yes.. I am part of that... and very proud to be too.
Please go and check out The Sisterhood of Crafters... we will be opening our doors for the start of new challenges as from March 17th... St. Paddys Day... Hope that you will all take a peep and see what our new blog is all about.... I cannot wait to get cracking with this.. once I have caught up with myself....
Until tomorrow... huge hugs and its good to be back in blogland... xx
