Jet lag, what jet lag?......

Boston...... Fab,

No.1Snowdrop...... Happy and healthy,

Beacon Hill...... Cool,

Clam chowder...... Yummy,

Hurricane Sandy......  Interesting,

U.S Election TV coverage...... Bonkers!!

We had a lovely time, and it was great to see our son in his new College home.  Thank you for all of your good wishes.

As I get older, overnight transatlantic flights get harder and harder.

But I'm learning that for me I have to go straight to bed, even if its just for a few hours.

There's nothing like your own bed, but here are a few others I wouldn't mind climbing in to!

Glad to be back.

Hope you have a lovely week,



  1. Sounds like a good trip!
    All best,

  2. Glad you had a great trip and all is well! I thought of you a few times over the week...storm and election coverage. I know what you mean about jet lag. For some reason I feel it more when I travel east (over the pond to you) rather than when I come home. Just glad to be able to do it though:)

  3. I really like that room with the single beds, needing inspiration for our spare room...this could work!
    Have a great week.

  5. Well you certainly picked an eventful time to travel to the US~WOW!
    Glad to hear you are home safe and sound. Oh yes! Bed, your own pillow~heaven right there!
    Thank you Liz, for your kind comment,

    Sarah -x-

  6. I'm the same when I come back from the States too ;-)
    Sounds an interesting time you had...and oh, those favourite is the top one...gorgeous!
    Have a lovely day and thank you for popping by ;-)

  7. Sounds like a great trip. I always go to bed after transatlantic flights. Can't beat your own bed - one of the joys of coming home!

    It's been very disconcerting seeing the devastation that Hurricane Sandy has wrecked on all the places I visited in September.

  8. How exciting that you were able to see your son and quite a bit of adventure too I bet. Yes, you're right about some beds being worthy and the ones you posted are divine. Glad you're back home safely in your own though:-). XX

  9. Love Boston - what a nice town. First bed looks very inviting, especially against the dark background. Hope you got over the jet lag! Caroline x

  10. So happy to see that you are safely back home ; what a lot happened while you were in the U.S. ! That last bed looks wonderful but if I ever got married again, it would have to be twins for me. As I get older, comfort is becoming paramount. Maybe twin king-size ? ... !xx

  11. Glad to hear you're home and safe Liz...and yes there's nothing like your own bed after a long haul flight. We're heading home for a visit in early Feb and I'm finding myself already dreading the 23 hours...stiff legs..sore neck and a very numb bum! Robx

  12. welcome home Liz! Lovely trip to see your son! Glad the US had so much to show you this time around!

  13. Welcome back and glad the drop off to college went well..can be a stressful time. I'm with you on the long flights! All these bedroom spaces look perfect for a much needed .. good nights rest!

  14. I'm glad your vacation went well! I'll have to agree with you on the US election coverage. Bonkers: no better word or it.

    When I flew from NY to London a few years ago, I remember the jet lag making me feel like I was going to go crazy. I couldn't sleep in the middle of the night, and when I did go to sleep I'd wake up in the middle of the afternoon. One of these beds would've cured it all though, I'm quite sure. ;)



  15. The last one has my name written all over it Liz. Welcome back from your adventures.

  16. Dear Liz,
    Sounds as if you had a wonderful time ........ we have visited the States many times but seem to be 'doing' Europe lately.
    Love all of the beds ...... they are very 'me' !!
    ...... and, many thanks for all of your lovely comments and support over at mine. You're really kind. XXXX

  17. Those beds look so cozy, I'm not sure I'd ever get myself out of it :) I'm glad you had a wonderful time seeing you son - how memorable that you were there for Sandy and the elections! I must admit I didn't miss hearing all the election hype :) XOL
