What a flipping carry on.... I turn up at the airport on Thursday 15th for my scheduled flight, having heard the rumours of a volcano "possibly going to cause disruption to flights in and out of the UK"...and you guessed it.. you know the story already........ Oh dear.......

5 days later, I've just gone to the airport, same scenario... I went to Qatar Airways Ticket Office this afternoon, to find out when I could return, as I'd been reading all morning that Heathrow was shut, no flights in or out for the foreseeable... And the man says that he hasn't heard that...and that the flight's still scheduled. Tskkkkkkk. Fine I go along with it, lulled into a false sense of hope, enjoying it, but that 5% at the back of my mind knows it's a blag, I packed my bag... check out my hotel, and said goodbye to all the people I met, on route to the airport... the hardest one was cheerio-ing the locals who I sit with just about everyday in their shops (this time with one very slow falling tear and not a snotty nose... tres cinematique... ) Anyway, off I go... knowing what was about to come..... and it happened... cancelled.  I call my friend, who picks me up and I go straight back into the room I'd checked out of 5 days ago... "Back again?" says the serious man at the bungalow place I was staying at.... "Yeah, aren't you glad to see me?!!" ha ha ha...

Anyway... I'll find out tomorrow when my flight's been re-sched'ed to...let's hope it's before the election, cos I rrrrrrrrrrrrreally want to vote.  OK, losing my humour, time to go.... Keep writing, I love hearing from you..... thank you thank you xxxxxxx
