Found 15th Jan 2010
woke up this morning with a headache that tablets just arent shifting....
....Have been waiting in for a parcel when I took the bin out and noticed a piece of card wedged in the door....went back inside and opened the door (as the front path is very slippery) to find its a 'we called and you werent in' card....I HAVE BEEN IN ALL SODDIN DAY...and downstairs in the front room since half 7...I can assure them noody has knocked on the door :x when I tried to close the door I found I have somehow broke the front door so I cant leave the house (it wont lock)
My friend has backed out of our weekend trip to venice next weekend.....Im not going to go on my own and its such late notice that nobody else can make the time to come with me
and to top it all (and obviously, clearly the most extreme)...a friend has just phoned me to say her dad has been given a couple of days to live (after suffering for a while with cancer)....he lives in cyprus so I have said she can bring the kids round here while she goes over there

just want a rant......why are some days just so awful

Well I think it's nice that despite all your bad luck today, you still find it in you to be a good friend to someone in their time of need. Good for you.

a broken door and missed package hardly adds up to that does it.....When she rang I felt awful that I was thinking it was a bad day before I found that out!

I never know what to say to people at times like this, shes in a rush so just dropping the kids off and back home to look for a flight/pack etc....Ill just have 2 little monsters running round here for a while

It does sound like a good candidate for 'crappest day of 2010'. The Venice trip is the one where you got that 1p or something room? Why not go by yourself and have some time out - just you, no responsiblities? Take some wonderful pics.
Sympathy from me.:friends:

Aw, life can be really hectic at times.

Hope your luck improves soon.

Have you tried to track your parcel? x x

You sound a wonderful friend.

I did something similar on christmas day when my friends mum died in front of him.

What an awful, awkward day :-(

Good points.
I must admit that I've never been anywhere by myself,: I'm not brave like that!
Shame to let Venice be wasted though - do you fancy a w/e away with your mum & dad? I would think your dad would be more than ready for some R&R, from what you've said about his workload in the snow..

Chesso and me will gladly come to Venice with you. A weekend in our glad rags, letting it loose and leading you astray.

Soon put a grin back on your mush!!!

Wotcha say Chess? U up fer it??

It was a saturday, so I had to wait until monday to get it.....I may as well just leave it at the depot til I have time now....I forgot....AND when I have a front door that locks :roll: Im in leeds btw

with the last minute and the amount of work he still has on I doubt it very much....neither of them seem too interested in Venice, as they seem to have been to a few 'like' cities (kinda been there done that syndrome) so I would feel awful making them waste money on going just so I get to go :roll:

It'd be good wouldn't it? :-D
Three generations (give or take!) 'do' Venice.:w00t:
Only problem is - I'm off on a sunshine (well warm rain by the looks of it) break next w/e.:x

Sorry you are having such bad luck. Venice definitely worth going regardless, nowhere in the world like it. Beautiful place, would go again any time.
Hope you do find a friend to take the other tickets;-)

As for the delivery, you should blast them for wasting your time!:x

HDNL are the worst ones.

They will get there eventually :roll:

I went on my own to Nice from Leeds airport about 18 months ago on a mystery shop.

It was ace, I would have loved to have had some time there when I arrived but I had to get the next flight back.

If I had a passport I would have gladly gone with you x x

ohhh its orite for some!!! Hope you have a fab time I have emailed the hotel to see if I can give the booking to friends (cos im unable to make it cos of the snow :roll:) gonna see what they reply and maybe offer it as a freebie....or see if some of my 'not-so-close' friends want to go :thumbsup: doubt theyll say its OK though......I might suggest it to the parents this aft, although flights are £120 now....+ a drive down to london.....When I booked the rooms they were £50 return! It seemed such a good idea when I booked it...seems it has just gone more and more wrong!

thanks....Im just wondering if its such a good idea to go alone for 2 nights/3 days....It wasnt going to be a shopping trip, more of a shoestring tripp so if theres no1 there to make conversation then I can see it costing me a lot.....which isnt good.....perhaps the venice part is a blessing in disguise :roll:

I reckon you would soon find company in Venice:p

I went a few years ago, found a few new friends:) felt really safe. True it is a bit expensive, tho' there are a few bargains to be found even there;-)

Hi Lil_tiger, sorry to here of this.
I wish you a GREAT weekend and the BEST of weeks form 18 onwards

Well I hope you get something sorted for Venice and well done you for babysitting for your friend.:-D
