Not celebrating Christmas this year due to the death of my aunt. So apology to all my friends who sent me Christmas wishes, I'm so sorry I can't reply to any of you this year. I hope we meet in a better circumstances next year. #ripmyaunt#holidaycancelled

** TRUST IN SPIRIT ** Well, this is very apt for today. We woke up early, Stuart finished his last minute packing, coffee together, hug and kiss goodbye and off he went to the airport.
When the taxi picked him up, his parents said Gatwick had had a drone incident and flights were being cancelled. *
They got to the airport and yup, over 100k people have been affected due to some pathetic idiot who decided to cause chaos! *
It seems that none of us were meant to fly out for Christmas 🎄 this year as it was only me meant to be staying behind with our dog, Stuart was in two minds about staying or going and compromised by deciding to go for half the trip and return in time for Christmas and now the universe has done its thing and shown us that for whatever reason, we are all staying here and spending this festive time together. *
As disappointing as it is for all the extended family who were excited to see us, there is clearly a plan in motion and a trip that is meant for another time. *
Trust in the moment, trust the universe and surrender to the here and now. *
Blessings to all the families that have saved up for a trip away that have now got to cancel but there will be a bigger and better break awaiting you further down the line. *
For now, I’m soaking in every moment I get having my snuggly husband home with us 🥰🎅
Bloomin’ marvellous. (This photo, not the current sitch). Bloody jinxed it, didn’t I? 🤦♀️ That’ll teach me for excitedly raving about our road trip & weekend away. 😐 Turns out Abe’s cough is NOT better (he perked right up yesterday instilling false hope) and despite his VERY-cute-but-VERY-pathetic protestations (between snotty crying & bad coughing fits) that he isn’t sick at all, we have cancelled our holiday plans. 😢
So instead of hitting the road bound for sun, sea & sand.... we are heading to the doctors waiting room. SUPER. 😐 #holidaycancelled#sickkid#fridayFAIL#havekidstheysaid#itllbefuntheysaid#mumlife#parentingproblems#thekiwimum
This is not us on a fancy plane! This is us going back home on a stinky train after 29 hours of travelling on busses and delayed trains to Copenhagen airport where we were met by delay after delay, cancellation, overnight stay over, new delays and then a replacement airplane from an unknown spanish airline 😩😵☹ No thanks!!! No more! We're exhausted and my fear of flying didn't like it at all! 😭 I hope I'll find the courage to book another flight some day in the near future 'cause we were really looking forward to this holiday. #goingbackhome#safetyfirst#fof#fearofflying#holidaycancelled#stinkytrain#sotiredicouldcry#arrrgh
I'm working on some new designs for September firing... This lady was inspired by my trip to Lithuania last month. Lol JOKE!! My flight to Lithuania was cancelled because Wizz Air are mean plane bandits and NOT the good kind. Still, this is the kind of Soviet rural beauty I imagined. 😏 #holidaycancelled#platedesign#ceramics#illustration#design#clarapotaito
“The art of losing isn’t hard to master;
so many things seem filled with the intent
to be lost that their loss is no disaster.
Lose something every day. Accept the fluster
of lost door keys, the hour badly spent.
The art of losing isn’t hard to master.
Then practice losing farther, losing faster:
places, and names, and where it was you meant
to travel. None of these will bring disaster.
I lost my mother’s watch. And look! my last, or
next-to-last, of three loved houses went.
The art of losing isn’t hard to master.
I lost two cities, lovely ones. And, vaster,
some realms I owned, two rivers, a continent.
I miss them, but it wasn’t a disaster. — Even losing you (the joking voice, a gesture
I love) I shan’t have lied. It’s evident
the art of losing’s not too hard to master
though it may look like (Write it!) like disaster.”

The plane that never took off 😔. Well on Tuesday we sat on an easyJet plane ✈️ for all of 40 minutes before being told get off it’s cancelled. Our first family holiday in 3 years and a whole lot of money spent only to have our hearts broken 💔. EasyJet’s customer service is appalling and I will never book flights with them ever again. #easyjetsucks#noholiday#holidaycancelled#bristolairport#frenchairstrike#fml
As does my computer.....stressful Thursday for me (first world problem here so I'm not expecting any sympathy, and I'm using the term stressful loosely!) Our flights for Ibiza have been cancelled by the airline and the alternative flights aren't suitable....no longer direct...too short a connection etc anyway the outcome is the holiday is CANCELLED ☹
I have however managed to book another holiday.....Fuereventura here we come!!! @meliahtlresorts
I was supposed to travel to Faro in Portugal🇵🇹 but in the end I couldn’t because of several weird logistics issues and I’ve decided to stay in Frankfurt during the Easter holiday🐖💨 Issue 1 - wrong info on Faro airport: Lufthansa ground staff at special counter told me initially that Faro airport doesn’t accept pets during public holidays (which was in the end not true but in their data system it was described that way). Due to this wrong info and confusion at their side, it took 45 mins for Lufthansa to confirm whether this info is true or not and I needed to wait for that. This was a major factor which made me miss a flight.
Issue 2 - new rule for pet cage: According to the ground staff, LH introduced the amended policy on pet cage few weeks ago which requires all cages to have “screw” on side. LH thinks my pet cage was not meeting the requirement because there were no such screws. I told them My cage is meeting the requirement for IATA and I’ve been always using this cage for flights from Tokyo to Frankfurt and Frankfurt to Budapest. In the end, LH concluded that I need to purchase a proper new cage meeting the new requirement with screws. If I want I can buy it somewhere at the airport but it roughly costs 300euros. (4 times higher than the average cost)
If I still want to fly, it costs me another 440€(140€ for rebooking and 300€ for new pet cage meeting the new LH policy) and my original flight was like 280€. There is no flight today but earliest next flight would be tomorrow. So to cut a long story short I ended up staying in Frankfurt for the next 4 days! I still don’t know what exactly the new amendment so called “screw” part but the photo on the left cage was approved while the right one was rejected🙅🙅♂️ Be careful all pet travelers with this new Lufthansa amendment!! #lufthansasucks#holidaycancelled#noportugal#happyeaster 🐷🐷🐷 #stayinginfrankfurtwithOcean 🐷 #lifewithfrenchie#pettraveler#flywithpets#flywithfrenchies#travelingwithfrenchie#instafrenchie#buhistagram
Yesterday was a bad day! Just been told hubby is deploying for 4months in August which means we will have to cancel the holiday abroad, I’m devastated we’ve just done 19months living apart where we couldn’t plan things and now this... I’m more bothered about the holiday to be honest! The whole reason I embarked on this weighloss journey was to feel good on the holiday but I feel like it’s all been taken away from me! I want to binge eat but I haven’t. Thank god I meal prepped else I think I would have totally lost track. I did have half a bottle of wine and disaronno though xx #militaryspouse#navywife#navy#holidaydiet#holidaycancelled#foodie#foodblogger#slimmingworld#slimmingworlduk
When u have a bad day, why would u even expect ur breakfast to taste nice?! This porridge tasted shit! I had to throw the first attempt into the bin cos too grainy and this one was too watery cos I put too much water compared to the oats, plus the idea to add a bit of natural skyr yogurt wasn't great 😓😷
Just wanted to be honest, even tho the pic doesn't look bad 🤣 (remember not everything u see is what it appears to be! 😉📸)
Anyway, I'm usually a positive person, I love getting things done and share my positivity here (mostly through the pics of my dishes), but today I think I will stay here with my sadness and darkness... I was so looking forward to fly to Italy and get to see my family and friends, instead I'm stock here with the snow and storm ❄️☃️😡
I think I'll be a couch potato for the rest of day, eating crap (actually not, there's not a single piece of junk food in my house, but I've 6 loaves of homemade brown bread and about 20 scones that I prepared for my love ones and I can't bring them❤️)
I might go out there and start selling bread cos it seems to be the first people problem here at the moment 🤣🍞
If you’ve changed your mind about a holiday or you can’t go anymore It’s likely that you won’t be entitled to a refund so you loose your money..... That's all changed thanks to Holibuy.. Now you can sell it and get most of your money back 🙂 #holibuy#holidaycancelled#unwantedholidays check out our website www.holibuy.com. Tag a friend
