Posts Tagged Travelling at Christmas
Remember a week or so ago when I was fretting that Mr. Tialys wouldn’t make it home because of various strikes and disruptions in the U.K. and France (but mostly in France).
I had run out of cut logs for the log burner, never used a chainsaw and not sure I want to start now.
I’d also got a Christmas tree outside but needed it bringing in and set up ready for decoration – it’s quite a big one.
Well, as you can see, he made it home but I was worried that, when he went back to the U.K., he would have difficulty getting back to France again because of the aforementioned strikes, demonstrations and general mayhem going on here at the moment.
Little did I think to worry about a drone (or drones) closing down Gatwick Airport for more than a day and causing travel chaos for thousands of people trying to get home to their families for Christmas.
There’s always something. Last year the French air traffic controllers were randomly on strike. Next year I’m going to insist he comes home a week early and stay here for the duration – I can’t stand the stress.
After rebooking himself and Mlle Tialys the Elder on a flight out of Heathrow (at vast expense) to make sure of arriving home in time for the festivities, including the now traditional dressing up of the dogs in festive manner, all is well,
Everybody’s here and we can relax.
I hope you are all able to be with the ones you want to be with this Christmas.
