…still almost there!…

Everything is ready…..packing is done; tickets, money and visas all to hand; details left with nearest and dearest; plants watered; neighbours instructed when to call-in…………..it was just too good to last!

Winds of 80mph, rain, and the ash-cloud seem to be conspiring to spoil our travel plans.┬áThomas Cook website keeps saying that the ash will not reach the UK in the near future…..so maybe they know something that the Met office and the airport don’t know!

….but I doubt it!

We can now only sit and wait
