Well, my little trip has turned into a mammoth problem because of the volcanic dust over Europe.
Being trapped in Barbados may sound like heaven on Earth - and it is - however, when you are told you CAN'T go home it's surprising how quickly homesickness takes hold.
Luckily, my son, who joined us out here a little later, brought the laptop with him, so I am now able to post and hopefully visit all your blogs (it helps the homesickness).
The UK government seems to have forgotten all the residents who are stranded places other than Europe. I fear the ships they've sent out to Spain to bring people back is merely a publicity stunt with the forth-coming election in mind. Well, 'Hello, Gordon - how about us?'
We have no idea when we'll be home. Never has the saying 'God only knows' been more true.

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter. Ours was quiet as my MIL was taken ill last week and is still in hospital, so any plans were put on hold. She seems well in herself, but has very suddenly and permanently lost the sight in one eye - something that must be very difficult to come to terms with.
This also means the kitchen cupboards have not been finished. I mean, they're ALMOST finished - just the two largest ones to be painted and a few others to be waxed. They will have to wait now because....
I'm off on a trip tomorrow, so I won't be around for a week or two. I'll tell you all about it when I get back. In the meantime, stay well, happy and crafty.
