...Lagging Behind...

...I am home!  Oh yesh, after the trip from hell, I made it safely back to Blighty earlier today.  I thought that the flights might be cancelled etc cos of the snow over here... seems Mr Delta Airlines had different agenda's and cancelled them anyway... and sent me on a wild goose chase across, what felt like, the whole of the United States.  Actually, it was a flight to Detroit and then a flight to Heathrow.  Not that big an issue, scheduled landing a few hours later but, hey ho, that's life.  Not so.  I always have been struck by the customer service in America, the happiness of the customer service providers, always smiling and ever helpful.  Well, I don't normally do the old "negative meanyness" on here... but I shall make an exception for the cast of last nights journey back to the UK... I have never encoutered such rudeness... and I have shopped plenty of times in "that supermarket".  Suffice to say, Mr Delta Airline will be getting a strongly worded and ever so slightly sarcastic letter from me tomorrow!


But first!  Hurrah and thrice, I am home, safely, albeit a little more jaded than when I left but oh boy, what a few days it has been.  Thanks to you all for your lovely comments and hi to the new followers here!   I haven't really got the energy to do a long old post so I thought I would share with you these two pics... my AlfieCat, not at all excited to see his Mummy, more excited to see what goodies she brought back from America!



I shall pop a post on tomorrow with more pics from my stay with Ellen... and then you never know, I may get to show you some of the arty things we made whilst playing in her Studio... and yes, I tidied it up after me.. well, sort of lol   Oh and the Room of Stash?  The fact that I spent all those hours tidying and cleaning before I went away.... SO worth it... I walked into a nice clean tidy room... erm... tisn't so tidy now, I have goodies to stash away but that will be tomorrow... first, a long soak in a hot bath... Grim is on nights *boohoo* so I am soaking then snoozling, hoping that I don't ping wideawake at 3am or some time stoopid lol .... I shall away... Thanks for looking... TTFN!

Welcome home Hels. It's a shame that Mr Delta airlines was not as clever as Alfie cat! Give him what for! (Mr D.A. not Alfie)!

Welcome back Hels, sorry you had such rubbish flights...lol I always find the airport and customs staff in the US the grumpiest ever, I swear they aren't allowed the smattering of a sense of humour, or is that just at LAX? Looking forward to seeing your creations!Hope you brought Alfie cat something nice back :) Carole Z X

So glad you have landed safely, I didn't know if you were still circling Heathrow waiting for a slot to land!!!!
It is so good to sleep in your own bed after being away from home - hope you managed to sleep...

Hi Hels. Glad you made it home safely albeit in a round about way. I'm sure it will take you a few days to recover. Alfie cat is so cute. A bag or box on the floor has to be investigated.
