After being away in the UK for a little over a week, I am now back in the village and getting settled back in.

I enjoyed seeing my daughters and my grandchildren, it was a blast it really was.

Once again on descending into Zagreb Airport I really had that “I’m back home feeling” (although I live in Bosnia and Herzegovina). It is quite hard to articulate why that is.

Would you like me to make a video about that?

I have had some VoiceOver work to complete too.


Tamara and I are spending time, crashed on the couch in the living room, with our menagerie of Dogs and Cats catching up with our YouTube subscriptions, especially the cooking channels from Azerbaijan.

We highly recommend these 2:

It’s Double Easter Time of year 🐣

This weekend is Easter for me and the following weekend, it will be Orthodox Easter. So be prepared for the next two posts to be a little heavy on Easter content.
