I've had a lovely two weeks in the sunshine but it's nice to be home again. Surprisingly I found the change in pace quite difficult to adapt to. Of course resting in the sunshine, reading new novels all mixed in with a little crochet was lots of fun but by week two I was missing the hustle and bustle of home. I missed my grandchildren, I missed baking and I missed my house. This was quite a new phenomena as usually I can sit and chill without a problem. My holiday was lots of fun though, we have been to this resort many times and it meets our differing needs well. The hotel is small with lots of water sports, tennis and a daily mountain bike ride over very rough terrain, which kept Mr R very busy. My activities included enjoying the lovely swimming pool and the very comfy sun loungers looking over the sea. The Turkish cuisine is yummy and something we both enjoy, now I'm home I need to concentrate on some very sensible eating.
I visited the weekly market in the tiny village of Ortakent. The market isn't touristy it's for the locals and stalls are very hotchpotch many are set up in front of open backed trucks filled with produce picked straight from the land. All the fruit and vegetables are seasonal and nuts and spices were in abundance. I bought a big bag of fresh figs and peaches and then caught the local dolmas (bus) back to the hotel.
Before I went away I'd written a number of posts that I shared with you throughout my holiday so that I could still keep in touch. Unfortunately since getting home my laptop has become poorly and I have been unable to even turn it on - it's currently with the lap top doctor but it's touch and go if he can revive it. I have my fingers crossed as I hadn't budgeted for such a big expense so near to Christmas. I am lucky to have my iPad which was a surprise gift last year but I find writing blog posts on it a bit tricky and can't always include photos, although I have managed one this time.
In between washing, ironing, shopping and cooking I have caught up with my favourite blogs but unfortunately haven't been able to join in with my weekly link ups. Although life has been so hectic since arriving home I don't have very much creativity to share with you.
I'm late with my monthly collage but hopefully I will have a laptop soon and I can look back at my Septembers creations. I have received some lovely comments on my posts whilst I have been away and a few more followers which is so lovely, I haven't been able to leave many comments or replies as wifi has been hit and miss and my iPad has been a bit temperamental. I am always delighted to receive such lovely feedback and very humbled that you take the time to read my very ordinary ramblings.
