Update on Stranded, or should I say Deserted!

Updating the last post, Emirate Airlines have decided they've had enough of all this ash cloud/major shutdown of airspace nonsense. Guy has been told he can't fly home for another nine days. Yes, I know it could be dangerous to fly but I worry that I won't remember what he looks like when he gets home. If he ever does. Lots of people are frustrated with the situation but because Guy is with family I don't have anything to worry about. Except for the milkman!

Milk is a commodity I had to give up when I was poorly so I asked the milkman, by a note in the empty bottle, to leave one semi-skimmed on Monday 19th ... for Guy. However, because of continuing worries with our airspace Monday 19th was changed to Friday 23rd. Another note was left for milkman cancelling the milk for 19th.

Since plans continued to change I told Guy I would inform the milkman! He saw the funny side straight away. Yes, I think we all know the tale about the housewife and the milkman!

So now we're looking forward to April 29th ... I just hope the milkman remembers!

That's funny. Bummer that the hubby is still stuck in Oz but at least he is with family. Hopefully you have things to do to keep you occupied besides writing notes to the milkman. Take care.

9 days, Blimey! Quite a lot of mischief you could get into in 9 days. What was that film with Kim Bassinger and Micky Rourke, no.. that was 9 1/2 WEEKS, not days :D

Oh dear..... I think the milkman would have thought.."Just like a woman ..... cannot make up her mind!"
The 29th will soon come round. Frustrating though.

Nuts in May

Always glad to make you chuckle Val.
