That was it then...

My vacation that is... 2 weeks just vanished in a blink of the eye and here I am back in Saudi with the heat and humidity!! I did manage to have a meal out with some girlfriends and of course I did some stash shopping. I also ate every known form of pork for sale in the supermarket and even managed to smuggle a tin of Ye Olde Oak Ham back in my suitcase!! I am going to keep it for Christmas.... it may seem to be just a tin of ham today.... but by the time Christmas gets here it will have undergone a transformation and will be the most delectable thing on the table come tea time!!

I took a couple of photos of my babushka dolls while I was home so that I can add the pics to my mini book.
See how tiny they get? Its only the baby one that is solid, all the rest come apart in the middle and painted so beautifully.
Oh and this was my suitcase... I did add some odd socks and t-shirts to it so it wouldn't rattle too much...
