This week has been very strange. I was supposed to be going on a business trip to Geneva. I got up at an ungodly hour to go and consequently got a text from BA saying the flight was cancelled. Aparently Geneva airport was closed due to that four letter word (dare I mention it snow). I have since tried to rebook my flights for next week but alas to no avail. I have been trying to get hold of them for two days. I tried to rebook via the website and it keeps telling me there is an error, probably because the world and his wife is doing the same.
I finally got put on hold (this was a result as if you do n't go on hold you get cut off, nice) to speak to someone other than an automated system. I was then onhold for approximately an hour, it was near to lunchtime and I was starving so gave up. I will try again over the weekend.
I picked up Mariah Carey from School on Wednesday and not my 6 year old Daughter. She decided to have lots of diva tantrums, which was delightful. Both of my Children's rooms were like a bomb site. My Son to my surprise tidied up his room (okay so I did bribe him with a sweet), and my Daughter instead of doing it incessantly complained about having to do it (my usual tactic of bribary was not working). I decided to be a firm parent and pushed on through and eventually after much debate, and crying she did it, hoorah! I was pleased I did as I do not want to do it forever, they have to learn. I know the easy option is to do it for them, but in the long run they will expect someone else to do it.
I bought a draft excluder today for my front door as until we get our extension we have lots of little drafts in the house. I hate it when you touch plates and they are freezing cold. Therefore, due to the cold weather, Australia seems appealing. I have never considered living there before, and I am not sure if the culture would suit me, but the sunshine would. I promise I would not complain it was too hot!
It has even been too cold for my newly acquired tweed shorts!
