I know it’s already mid-September and it seems that summer holidays finished a long time ago. However for one reason or another, I haven’t blogged properly since we went to Brazil in July. I was planning on blogging while I was away, but I didn’t get round to it. I wanted to spend every minute with my parents, family and friends. I also had some internet issues while we were away.

Besides, it was the first time we were away for the whole summer, so I didn’t know how hard it would be to face reality once we got back home. I am quite cheerful and happy. If you know me, you see me smiling all the time. Don’t get me wrong, I love living in England, it was my decision to emigrate nearly 10 years ago, however I haven’t been feeling myself since we got back.

I suppose it’s normal to be feeling a bit sad when you return from holidays. I didn’t quite understand the meaning of feeling upset after a holiday until now. Whenever someone mentioned that they were feeling a bit blue after being away, I wasn’t sure what they were talking about. However now I do! We had an amazing time, it was wonderful. The weather was great during the whole duration of our break. Although it was winter in Brazil, it didn’t rain one single day, it was just a beautiful sunshine while we were there, around 25-27 degrees!

I’ve finished unpacking, it took me sometime to unpack as we took six suitcases and hand luggage too! A bit over the top, but we had to be prepared for the Brazilian winter. Little I knew that we would only need summer clothes, flip-flops and our swimwear.

Right, now I’m back and I’ve finally realised that feeling blue will not bring my family and friends back! It’s time to look up and get on with life. I will use my holiday memories to motivate me and put a smile on my face each morning. Apologies I haven’t been in touch lately, but it’s all back to normal now.

I will be quite busy over the next few weeks, I have competition winners to draw, we’ve been trying on a few new products during our holiday, so I also have reviews to write up. I will let you know all about it soon! I’m glad to be back!

Hope you all had a great summer holiday! 🙂

Bye for now x
