My little princesses caught the plane home yesterday. I won't blight their memory by speaking about their unspeakable behaviour on the train journey to the airport. Suffice to say that "my little butterfly" is feeling much better (thank God), but with recovery came stroppiness.

At the airport I met my beloved husband and three grandchildren. They flew in on the plane that was taking the princesses home. They exchanged waves as one pile came through arrivals and one pile went through departures.

I'm on the last mile home now. We stay until Saturday and then I get "me" time" - the Orient Express. I have a huge guilt about pampering myself, but I figure that I have "time served" and credit in the bank which I can now indulge myself with. Onward and upward.

Dear lady, I am amazed and impressed by your technical expertise. Earlier in the week you managed, single-handedly, to delete your blog. Now today I see you've written your post using your blackberry. Is there no end to your talents?

And after a long hot summer with the little princesses your surely deserve the best of pampering.

Thank you for your well deserved praise. The blackberry has been the biggest challenge of the summer ...and for my next trick watch me delete the blackberry - dada.

Seriously though, one of my defences against retirement and creeping senility is to learn new technical stuff.

My IT guru will laugh if he reads this! He would say "no, you get me to learn new technical stuff, instruct you and you still manage to foul up".

I think you are doing well :) Now please make a post from the blackberry that includes a photograph... Perhaps during your Orient Express journey. Oh and you do deserve to pamper yourself and I am sure that there are 60 or so people here at the office that would agree. Have fun!!

Eh! Ashley, I don't know how to tell you this, but the blackberry has stopped working and I never could get it to send photographs.

Never mind, I'm home next week. You can sort me out then (again)!

Have a good trip, R&C! While you're on the Orient Express, I'm making jam & chutney, sigh.

Hi Lizzie, do you know I have always wanted to be the kind of wife/grandmother/great grandmother that stayed at home making chutney and I'm sure my family would have respected and loved me for it so don't knock the chutney.

Do you think I will ever be that rational and sane? Nah, universaly hated, that's me!!

Ashley I read into your comments that 60 people at the office can't wait to get rid of me again for another few days. Well, adios amigos, I will be back - crazier than ever.
