it would appear that i will not be flying the nest today.
the snow that has engulfed dear blighty has caused my flight to be cancelled.
i have hung up my 'hangar' sized undies until tomorrow and my skirt ("a skirt, Tif...are you mad enough to travel in a skirt?"). i thought it would make a change to the usual baggy trousers...i can't do jeans and anything remotely 'static like' turns me into a big electrical current.
i feel now i have turned 40 i need to become a 'traveller' with style.
the sort you look at in airport lounges who look so effortlessly, casually, elegantly, grownupperedly, perfect in their 'get up'.
so i have a flowery skirt, winter boots and long cardi all ready.
i am also going to be most grown up and travel with my own blanket ("actually isn't that what 'wee tots' do?") yes, that is quite true dear readers but i'm not taking a 'barney' blankie, no, no, i am taking a sophisticated knitted number, to give me just the right 'crafty' boho look...also allowing me to avoid 'massive static cling' syndrome that seems to come with airplane blankets...(can you tell i have time on my hands with the flight being cancelled...i am now twitting on about blankets for crying out loud)
anyway i have high hopes that i will not accidentally leave my skirt tucked into my gigantic 'knick knacks' when leaving the airplane loo...i did this once when aged 17 walking down a main street in Cambridge. in those days i had smaller undies and a 'perter' backside, now a days it would be the biggest social horror to commit on fellow passengers, especially if one happened to be close to a lovely chap like Colin Firth or someone of similar loveliness...
so the shed has been cleaned to within an inch of it's life, all laundry completed with not much help from Mrs W. Machine, furry friends cuddled, notes written and i am now sitting around twiddling my thumbs and waiting...
in the meantime my delightful family will find out this afternoon that 'mum' is still here and even more concerning for them...i will be here to cook...
fingers crossed she will take off tomorrow ~ Tif
