Thank you. For your messages. They were all brilliant and definitely put a smile on my face yesterday. Thank you for taking the time to write them, thank you for taking the time to make me laugh. As I found out last night, there really are more important things in life (more on that some other time), and I shouldn't focus on little details. The bigger picture is fine. Well, sort of!! My mum is going to try and get on a train tomorrow, she thought there was no point trying today as they're moving passengers who have been waiting around since Saturday first. Fingers crossed she'll make it tomorrow.

So in the meantime, I'm enjoying my first day of holiday. I have to say, having been ill for a couple of days last week and having to work from home due to the snow, I feel like I've already been spending a lot of time at home. Considering what the weather is like outside, I think I'm more than happy with that!!! I think that I'm going to give myself a relaxing day today, full of little bits of happiness. That's how it works isn't it? There are things that need sorting out, very serious things, but in the meantime, to stop me going mad, I need to focus on the good things and find pleasure where it is. So there will be some last minute shopping, some cake icing and some present wrapping. More on this later!!! x

I sense the festive spirit is awakening - told you it just needed to thaw out!

Hope your Mum manages to make it over here.

And remember. It's one bit of icing for the cake, one bit of icing for you, one bit of icing for the cake, one bit of icing for you etc etc :)

Glad your frown has been turned upside down!
If you need some extra cheering up, there have been some great kitsch Christmas films on Channel 5. We watched Muppet's Christmas Carol yesterday and loved it! x

My daughter was due to fly back from Germany last night, but they cancelled all flights into Luton. She is 20 years old and has been away since August, although I have visited her. She managed to get another flight this morning and is now sitting in her room laughing with her friends!! Hope your Mum makes it over - I know how you feel, all ready and waiting. Fingers crossed. xxx
