    I still find it strange to comprehend that I am hardly any closer to the one of my sons who lives in Colorado so in the same country as me than I am to the ones who still live in the UK

    The best part of a great holiday from family is the realization of how much we love them when we return.

    This abandoned journal seems the suitable place for this.

    Today we fly to the UK to visit friends and family. I am, in no particular order -

    Anxious - about leaving my animals in the care of the lovely housesitter

    Excited - about seeing friends and family again

    Anxious - that somehow it will all have 'changed' and I won't fit in (I know, life isn't like that really :) )

    Relaxed - because we have been super organised and are now READY waiting for the car to pick us up

    Looking Forward - to a fortnight off from feeding, walking, shovelling, and trudging.

    Car here, must go!

    You're right! Everything has, including my parents house. And I'm 43 so you would have thought that that particular phenomenon would have already occurred...

    Ooh look! GRASS! Bendy roads! Traffic jams!

    Funny has fast you forget all those things isn't it!!!
    I remember last year being so fed up of snow and ice and a UK friend sent me a photo of her horses standing in covered from noses to the end of their tails in thick mud in the pouring rain and I thought "No I don't miss that one little bit' and I've actually forgotten what its like to bring horses in from the field and wonder where to start removing it all.
    And the narrow bendy lanes - last time my husband was over there in a rental car he found himself driving very nervously at 25mph on lanes he used to happily drive at 50mph on!!!

    We had a lovely time in the UK. I have a big place in my heart for London, and was so glad to spend time there. Stayed with parents which was both lovely, and frustrating at the same time

    Visited friends all too fleetingly, and then flew home. Yes indeedy Alberta is most definitely home now. The snow, the lack of rain and and mud. I love it all.

    Yesterday school was back and so I was back on the horse, with a friend who came over to ride Riley while I was on Ukon. The snow was deep, we chose areas that haven't been frozen into ice layers.

    Our phones don't like all-white days, they find it hard to take a clear picture.

    She chose to check out this dip on foot before asking Riley to go down it. Riley, Ukon and I all laughed as she sunk in..

    We had a lovely ride

    I admire your courage!!!
    Glad you enjoyed your trip back to the UK. Its great that you think of Alberta as your home now - we feel the same way about this little bit of the US though a bit of my heart will forever be in England a lot of the places that I think of my in my best memories are now under concrete, tarmac and houses so really the parts I miss barely exist there any more!!!
