Back home from holiday.What was the first thing you did? How long to unpack and get back to normal routine?
Did you feel energised or exhausted?

Well I went with an older woman who went Greek dancing and flirting. I was exhausted just trying to keep her out of mischief!shock

No matter how tired I am, I have to unpack, open mail, etc. before I can rest. I usually take my laptop with me, so I don't have to catch up with my various forums.
I do any laundry the day after, then it is back to normal.

Get washing out of the suitcase and stick it in the washer. Not so I can wash it, mind - that will do next day - it's just so I can carry my suitcase upstairs and throw it in the spare bedroom! Then I fish out anything I might need imminently, and shut the door on it. Job done! grin

We unload everything from the car, then usually go to the chippy for some tea.

Empty the bags, put washing on, put everything away, then sit with a cuppa and open mail, which is often mainly junk. If I don't do it all straight away, it seems to spread itself everywhere and never seems to get done properly confused.

What a virtuous lot you are.I'm like MrsJamJam put the kettle on,have something to eat .After a long drive like last week may even have a nap.Not in a hurry to unpack.Best way to do that is to tip suitcase contents onto floor/bed.

If your travelling companion has a mobility scooter you could come home exhausted by trying to keep up with her.grin
