Back to the old routine

Hello from the UK again.
I'm trying to get back into my old routine , but my body is still functioning on EST time. Today I woke up at 11.30 am,lol.
But that suits me fine as I am working nights this weekend.
So.....what went on since my last post?
Reggie took me to Greensboro Airport last Sunday where I took a very short flight to Charlotte. Saying "good bye " is never nice , so Reggie says "see you in 20 minutes" to distract from the fact that it will be a long time,lol.
My FB friend LaNita picked me up in Charlotte and I stayed at hers over night in Kanapolis, as my connecting flight didn't leave until around 6 pm on Monday. So we had the day together and 4 of us a lovely breakfast at Cracker Barrel in the morning. The first time I had Grits , by the way. That's Nita on the right.
Then the flight back to London over night-oh boy ! It's cold here ! Hard to believe I sat on Reggie's porch in the sun wearing just a thin top last week!
Tuesday was cleaning day ..... son home alone for 3 weeks and this place was in desperate need of it again,lol.I had to banish the dust devil !
Shaun got presents from Reggie which caused a giggle.

Not to mention the Chick-o-sticks, MoonPies and Summer sausage I brought back and which Shaun loves -damn, that means less for me ;)
Yesterday was my first day back at work and it's back to the old routine.
I got my craft supplies out as well and the result was another Dreamcatcher , which I made for Nita.

I have these two nights to work , then I will be on rota break again and hopefully have some time to scrap some of the pics I took in NC.
But I promised another freebie, so I dug out "New Beginnings " for the start of the New Year.
Here the first two links

 Enjoy !
More about my time in NC, layouts, freebie parts and future plans in my next post ....let's just say this will be a year of preparation ..... until next post
Snowy MoonPie :) lol

Welcome back again!
Must be hard to get used to the "old"routine again, I can imagine.
Wow, there was really a dusting needed LOL!
So happy you had a wonderful time with Reggie!
Hmmmm, making me curious by your last words: let's say this will be a year of preparation.
But.... I might have an idea about that.
Shhhhhh, I won;t say anything, I could be wrong just as easy, although my feelings don't often cheat me.
First get back to the usual life again. we can talk later.
Ghee, I am not completely awake yet, difficult to type well and get my thoughts together LOL.
Hey, have a lovely day,

I have to agree with Kyra about your last statement. I suppose though, that you'll let us in on the news when you're ready. I'm glad you had a good time with Reggie. Going back home always sucks. Although you at least got to stay and visit with your friend for a little bit too. So that all worked out nicely.

I'm at work, so gotta get busy here. You have great night, hugs, Edna B.
