The Weary Traveller

So here's the thing.....

it has been one of those weekends!!

Well it all started last Thursday really. There we were, going along in our own sweet merry way minding our business and sooooooo looking forward to the weekend and Mr T coming home from work when this volcano erupted leaving poor Mr T stranded in Austria - uh huh!!

Which meant no excursions or adventures for the Tabiboo's this weekend as we spent all of Friday and Saturday waiting with anticipation and many a phone call exchanged updating and wondering if he would ever make it home.

Fortunately (for him) he managed to acquire a hire car, but spent two 'yep' two whole days driving across that part of Europe with the hope he would be able to get on the Eurostar and cross the channel......he did 'phew'.

Thank goodness we live in the county of Kent and he had only a further twenty minutes drive back home - unlike some poor unfortunate exhausted travellers.

So very late on Saturday night, weary but very, very relieved to be home he stumbled through the front door thanking his lucky stars.

Our weekend has been filled with completely random stuff like the pictures I had taken.

A spot of this a bit of that and a sleeping babe snuggled up waiting for her dad to come home whilst I comfort crochet.

Fortunately for us it all worked out in the end, but I know there are many, many more stranded, a long way from home and with no insight as to when they will be able to get back.

Here's hoping we will keep all our drama's to a minimum - for a while that is. Have a lovely, lovely day ::
