A warm welcome

I arrived home in the early hours of Monday morning.  Mr A collected me from the airport on the motorbike.  It's amazing how much he can carry on it...a large suitcase, hand luggage and me.

As I walked through the gate to the house, the dogs greeted me with excessive enthusiasm.  I love the loyalty of dogs.   When we were driving from the airport Mr A mentioned that he hadn't managed to get any shopping, just milk and water.  I was too tired to worry about it and avoided having a moan.

When I entered our house I could see that Mr A had done all the housework and for that I was very grateful.  I put the kettle on to make coffee and on opening the fridge for the milk, found it absolutely full of food.  Everything I could possibly need to last me for ages....meat (including steak...oh what a treat), vegetables, salad, fruit, and all the basics.  I was delighted.  He apologised for having forgotten to get me icecream (he knows I love icecream) but he brought home 3 cartons on Tuesday night.  

I think I should go away more often!

PS:  Having attempted to catch up on much needed sleep over the last couple of days, I've just found time to start reading my favourite blogs....only to find that I am still unable to leave comments on the majority of them.  I still have no idea why it's possible to comment on some but not others...even when they are all Blogger blogs.  So apologies for this...but rest assured I am reading.
