To top it off, I've got internet connection problems and the technician is booked in for tomorrow afternoon. It's taken 2 hours just to do this post (if it works) so I'll hopefully have my holidays photos loaded and blogged over the next day or so.
The weather is definitely warmer on my return and the menu will be changing. I think my slow cooker will be put out to pasture till winter next year and I'll be looking forward to lighter, fresher meals.
Thanks for keeping in touch with me while I was away. (I can't even reply to blog comments, Facebook, Twitter or emails).
