We had planned to fly to Rome and drive to Tuscany to spend a couple of days with our friends there, the husband is already in Italy and the wife was to fly out this morning from Edinburgh to Pisa. She has re-booked to fly to Rome with us on Monday so we can all drive to Tuscany. I can't see it happening but Mr FF is optimistic and I'd like to be proved wrong. His first reaction yesterday when we heard that our Sunday flight was off was that we should drive the 7 or 8 hours down to Dover today, catch a ferry and drive the 2 days to Tuscany, but the girls weren't up for that.
Anyway, at least I finished the little cardy to take to Italy for new baby Lara and fortunately it's size up to 12 months, just as well as she could be considerably older by the time we see her. The garden is looking great, we have family coming up from Yorkshire today who would have house sat but may find themselves spending time with us instead. At least we are not stranded in some airport, many people have been trying to get home since Thursday and apparently received no help at all from the airlines. On the downside the weather has turned cooler and there is some snow forecast, just goes to show that you can't do anything about nature. Now where's this volcano you want me to cap?
