Lady Magnon was due to return to France yesterday afternoon, but, as everyone probably knows, London's two major airports (the busiest in the world) are snowed under.
Re-booking is never easy in these circumstances, and the next available flight is on Boxing day.
So, looks like another Christmas all by myself. I shall watch 'It's a Wonderful life', and 'Love Actually' on TV, maybe roast myself a small duck, and settle down to pull a lone cracker.
Occasionally life deals a bummer. I suppose it's my turn.

Oh no, poor Cro! I'd invite you over to Chez Nous but we're in Blighty for the winter. (Phew, lucky escape there I hear you say!). Will Lady M be back for Boxing Day?ReplyDelete
How very kind, Sue, but I'll be fine. Hopefully she'll be back just after Christmas, we'll have to see; she may decide to stay!!ReplyDelete
Oh, that's a shame, Cro. Maybe I'll drop in (cyberly) on the day and see how you're getting on with your box of kleenex and 'It's a Wonderful Life'ReplyDelete
After your info', I shall be thinking of cheesey smelling snow!ReplyDelete
This is (as your title suggests) just like the movie Home Alone, except you're not 9 years old, you're in France instead of Chicago, and Joe Pesci isn't staking out your mansion. Okay, it's nothing like Home Alone. But I do feel bad for you. I hope your neighbor's dogs will come around and give you some comfort and company. Take care ~ReplyDelete
Go visit "the home" and slip them some cheer. It will make everyone feel good.ReplyDelete
Hi Cro..what a bummer!!! maybe you better send lady Cro shopping earlier next year...I thought I was hard done because our son doesn't want to come home for Xmas lol as long as your lady is safe thats the main thing isn't it,our friends daughter wanted to see a white Christmas so she has jetted off to Uk, Scotland and Ireland then Europe on a Contiki tour,wonder where they will be stuck!they left here on monday last week yukk,would you believe we have gone from the steaming heat of last week to 8c today we will all end up with summer colds! have the best day you can, hey the visiting the home sounds like a good idea.CaroleReplyDelete
Cro -its a bit of a nightmare for everyone having to travel. My thoughts are with Lady M and all those other folks. Love Tom's idea of keeping in touch on Christmas Day through the web. Will do!ReplyDelete
No!! I wish you could hitch a ride to WM. I hate the thought of you being cro'me alone.ReplyDelete
Cro...say the word and I will postpone Christmas until Lady M gets home (yes I really am that powerful).ReplyDelete
The problem is, Jacqueline, that Lady M will be wanting to celebrate on the 25th. We'll just have to become REAL Froggies, and celebrate New Year instead.ReplyDelete
Do you know about skype? Check it out, and you can video-chat with Lady M.ReplyDelete
We are Skype addicts T. With our brood in all quaters of the world, it's the only way to keep in touch.ReplyDelete
