Back home, and I was nearly rich today!!!!

Well we made it home. Infact we were home by 3.30pm today, we made good time. Helped in part by the fact that Canada customs, wasn't even interested in looking at our passports, never mind anything that we bought. We must look honest. Either that or I had a face like thunder as I had the headache from hell all the way back home. I even slept both in the morning and the afternoon which did not help at all.

We arrived home to rain, and according to my dad the first rain we have had here since we left two weeks ago.......typical!!!

So how was I nearly rich today........well as I said I had a horrible headache, it was probably a migraine, but as I am so used to them I generally call them headaches. So we decided to have an early lunch at Bob Evans, so I could take some pills. Well we stopped between Erie and Buffalo at what turned out to be the busiest Bob Evans ever. Anyhow to cut a long story short, we eat and I go to pay. Well the woman mixes up our bill with someone else's, so I sort it out for her, but she wouldn't listen, and got a supervisor involved, again I tell them what's what, and again to cut a long story short I am right!!! So I give her a $50 bill and she enters it into the till at $50,000, so my change should be $49,xxx.xx The guy behind me says forget about who's bill is whose, just take the change and run!!!! If only I could have.....oh well!!

So the house is all in one piece. Nothing overly exciting in the mail. Nothing too important on the phone messages. All in all everything seems to be fine here. I got unpacked, done one load of laundry, the rest can wait until tomorrow (Sunday). Will sort out the presents etc also tomorrow (Sunday) and hopefully get some grocery shopping done.

I am so looking forward to having a good nights sleep in my own bed.

Thanks for all your comments while I have been away. I am looking forward to catching up with all your blogs.....

Welcome home Gill! No matter how good a vacation is, it's always a relief to get home and nice to sleep in your own bed again.

Good to know you're back home after what sounds like a very enjoyable holiday. I laughed at the Bob Evans episode. Maybe it's a new thing they're offering? I think I will go to our closest one in Manassas and try my luck. Hope you got rid of that nasty headache okay and that your dh is feeling a lot better today.

Hello Gill
That was a busy trip you had - Hope you are feeling better soon but now you get time to rest and look back and reminisce

From recent experience I can agree with you on the relief at sleeping in your own bed :)
