Here are the very different places I have stayed....... first Kaukapkaupa North Auckland

Then a 14th floor apartment in Southport, Brisbane (near Surfers Paradise)

Then to Humpty Doo in  Darwin

And Lastly to Melbourne
4 very different locations and accomodation!!!!

Coming back to so much rain and cold was not nice and I am still trying to get used to not wearing summer clothes !! This year, I realize coming home, how much sorting, clearing and tidying I need to do after being in open plan living for 2 months it seems so overwhelming in my house. I have made a small start in the kitchen lol......
Thank you for your visit and hope you are are all well

Hugs Tilly x

Welcome back Christine, wow stunning accomodation! Love the card and great map. I love my Cricut but probably don't use it enough, have the gypsy too but when I downloaded Cricut Craft Room to my computer it made it so much easier to use as I see better what I was going to cut. Just wish the cartridges I want weren't so expensive! lol Have a great week xx
