I've run out of optimism today. The English airports are still shut. It's Tuesday. We're supposed to fly out Sunday and yes, we have time, but as each day goes by it becomes more and more worrying.

My Father #1 says what we need is the weather to change. The ash is hanging around thanks to a high weather system hanging around. I never thought I'd see the day when I'd be praying for bad weather. A low pressure system will change the way the winds flow and move the ash off England and into the Atlantic.

Boy's school has been fantastic. They've e-mail through revision work and have been in e-mail contact with him about his coursework due this morning and the end of the week. He's been cracking on with it, with no nagging from me. He did have an IT blip, but an e-mail got their IT department to sort it out.

The stress of this is seeing me outside more often puffing away. I'm continuing to write and am getting nowhere at the moment. I'm going to curl up with a crap book and sulk.

Please pray to your favourite deity to get the weather to change. I want to come home now.

    Stop sulking. Bad for the weather :)

  2. The BBC forecast for Norfolk gives northerly winds tomorrow, but then shifting round to the south for the rest of the week.

    Can you get to Spain? Gordon Brown is sending the navy, and fleets of coaches there, to rescue stranded tourists.

  3. My brother's stuck in New York and may miss my once-in-a-lifetime coast to coast cycle.

  4. xoxoxoxoxo just because, sugar!

  5. If memory serves, Trinidad is a No Sulking Zone!

  6. Oh, and I did lead prayers for you (and everyone else caught up in the disruption, but I meant you) in church on Sunday.

  7. I'm stuck in San Francisco, but despite the horrendous expense of it all, we are rather enjoying it. We should have flown back yesterday - at the moment the earliest flight available is 30th April. At least you are with family. I hope it doesn't impact too much on the Boy's school work though.

    Sorry to hear you and boy are stuck in Trinidad...

    Airspace opened today so hope you are home soon...

  9. mago ~ oh, alright then. If you insist.

    dave ~ I'm going to try and get us home by direct means, as tempting as it would be to be ferried by the navy.

    rog ~ oh no. All that training you've been enduring.

    xl ~ I'll look up that bit of legislation in a mo.

    dave ~ thanks honey. Much apppreciated.

    sanddancer ~ glad you are enjoying San Fran, I remember it is your favouritist US city in the whole wide world. Have fun sweetie.

    NM ~ Hello stranger! Good to see you back in Blogland. Yes, I've seen UK airspace is open again. Thank goodness and the deities that people have been praying to on our behalf.


Hey, how's it going?
