Time To Relax

How lovely to have friends visit and we just all chat and drink the nights away. Three nights of catch up with hardly any sleep.

This morning our friends left and we drove them to the airport. Now we are home and so shattered after our enjoyable time with them.

The house seems so empty now ,it's always quiet when visitors have left. Leaving the airport was strange.

We have arranged a vist to see them soon when we get into the nicer weather. I am looking forward to a visit to my favourite Island, where they live. I lived there for most of my life. It's a place called Jersey in the Channel Islands.

The good things are we can now relax with the dogs and get back into our routine,but first I am turning the phone off ,just in case another friend calls-----we need a rest before more visitors..

I like jersey, but have not been there for a long while now.

You have great memories from your recent visit from your friends and something pleasant to anticipate in the near future -- sounds perfectly wonderful to me.

You are right ,we can take our dogs also and our massive van . Jersey is a miniscule island so parking is an important part of life there.

You'll find it has changed a lot in the last few years..

Glad to hear you had such a nice time! It can be tiring but there is no time to nap when you have guests! I've never been to Jersey before

I always hate it when it goes quiet after visitors leave and it takes a while to adjust. Glad you will see yours soon.

You have a Jersey over there which is named after my beautiful island home. You would love the sweet island..

That is such a sickly gutsy feeling when the plane goes and you return to empty house.

Friends spaced out is a good thing. I am glad you have silenced your phone (lol)

always sad when lovely friends have to say goodbye - Jersey is so fabulous - really hope to go there again myself some time

Leaves an empty feeling when pals go home,I think Jersey is where I will end up..

Thanks! I agree-plus a gorgeous silver Indian style slave bangle.

It is kind of a mixed blessing when friends visit and when they leave as well. Glad that you enjoyed the time shared and that you have such wonderful friends. Rest well.

It's wonderful to have company but then we need to recharge for the next adventure!

You are right Peg,there is always that strange feeling of sadness mixed with time to be alone for a while.

Also in the park my dogs are now searching for them,they think a stranger in the distance may be them-funny....
