Tyred! Braked! Exhausted!


No. They didn't send in the cavalry. That's the 4 horsemen of the Apocalypse and their cronies ceremonially heralding the arrival of biblical proportions of snow at exactly the moment I drove into Lutonff.

It's 35.5 hours since I left home and 37 since I last slept. I have tried to remain perkier than Bridget Jones in a Thai prison but the disappointment at not being smugly and comfortably tooked up in a 5 * hotel, enjoying Turkish Baths and Hungarian ghoulash together with an unexpected garage bill, which cost more than the flipping car in the first place, just to get home has left me somewhat BudaDeprest!

All that adventure lark is thoroughly overrated.

I thought that you said 'toked up' and I was wondering why you would need a 5 star hotel if you were taking that kind of trip?

I hate to be a BudaPEST but after being up for 37 hours you must be Hungary for some BuchaREST for the Romania of the week...
my gawd that is dreadful!

Sorry CP. I heard all about the flight cancellations over the past few days and felt glad, for once, that that part of my life is over for now.

A. Pamper yourself next time you're abroad.

B. Ask someone who has influence with higher powers to ensure there is no snow at airports next time.

C. Travel abroad by train. Carbon foorprint is allegedly less too, so you can feel smug.

Sounds miserable. You've been having bad luck with these spa-like vacations lately (in case that had escaped you). It might be more economical and restful to have one of those jetted whirlpool tubs installed in your own house, and then you'd be quite sure that the towels and sheets were clean, too.

Just keep telling yourself that you didn't want to go in the first place. Not really. You just thought you did.
Ok, so maybe it won't work, but you can give it a try cos it might work.

Seriously, it's a shame you never got off the ground but I'm a firm believer in things happening for a reason so just you wait and see... something will happen that will make you think "good job I didn't got away that time after all".

You seem like you are enjoying yourself very much. Good for you! All I ever want is a pedicure and someone to brush my hair until I fall asleep.

If you want a real break CP I need someone to look after my ponies, cat and rabbits for a week - what could be more relaxing than getting up with the lark and mucking out and shovelling sh*t? Just let me know where to send the map and instructions and I'll leave you the keys to the drinks cupboard! (I have to lock it I have teenagers)

Yes indeed. Pull yourself together, post something and give us all a good laugh.

Some of us need one.
