Me on Monday with the post holiday blues

This time last week I was taking selfies by the beach with a flag pole with more than three flags on it in the background - this week I'm trying to think up ways to avoid doing the ironing that was generated from getting all the washing done and dried yesterday.
And what's the best way to while away an hour or so?  Checking out the photos that I've found for Rinda's Scavenger Hunt.  I have one left to get and it's one I can engineer any time - a person walking a dog.  I think Coco's nose will be well and truly out of joint if I use some other dog for that one!
 
I was really happy with the extra finds I made whilst on holiday.  You've never seen so many flagpoles with lots of flags flying as there are in Viareggio!  A trip into the nearby town of Lucca found me so many decorative door knockers that I am spoilt for choice now and may need to resort to making a small collage up for that one.  And imagine my delight at rounding a corner and finding a beautiful carousel twirling around in the sunshine. 
 
My weekend was a strange mix of travelling and getting back to normal routines.  Overexcited dogs, unpacking suitcases, one more batch of washing in the machine, watching the Great British Bake Off that I recorded, let's have Sunday lunch at the local pub because I don't want to cook and downloading photos.  Which is where this post started - time to give a big wave to Sian and see what everyone else is up to today.

I love the impact Rinda's hunt has - your summer holiday of 2015 will be remembered as the one with lots of flags!

Coming back into reality is always hard. At least there are the photos!

Ah vacations and the photos. What better way than on this Monday to catch up with your SPSH photos, blog catching up and relaxing into a regularly scheduled week.

Not so fun returning to reality, but lots of great memories and......flags! I don't know about logging on at midnight, but I do need to get myself up to speed with how clearing works, if needed.

"You've never seen so many flagpoles?" never seen?! I think I might have chosen the wrong holiday destination..

Have a good week!
