Ha,ha, we got from Tokyo to Heathrow arriving only a few minutes late due to some very nasty turbulence and then we travelled across London on the tube and arrived over thirty minutes late on a two hour journey!! Daddy had prepared roast beef, Yorkshire pudding and delicious sprouting broccoli, carrots and asparagus for us and after a shower and a nice cup of tea we were awake enough to really enjoy it. We had a good sleep but feel very battered this morning - it was evening at this time (if you know what I mean) for the past three months!
Election Day here and the newspapers and television are full of it... It seems strange that we are back here and yet life is going on in Japan, Australia and New Zealand as normal and without us. It was lovely to wake to the dawn chorus this morning though and to enjoy a long twilight yesterday and a slow dawn this morning. I'm going for a walk around M&D's garden now, to enjoy all the spring flowers which all seem to be out at the same time and looking lovely - the bluebells, clematis, forget-me-nots, cherry blossom and lilac to name but a few.
