Yesterday was a funny old day. Not in a bad way, not amusing, just - well, funny.
The background is that you might remember I was going on a 'fitness' holiday with Lindsey (my PT) and a group of her clients. It was in Valencia, based in a purpose built hotel and I booked it last year, in October, well before all this started.
We were all holding on to see how things might go but I was becoming increasingly uncomfortable about it all and over this weekend I decided it was most sensible and certainly most responsible to pull out. After all, I have a vulnerable family - I am the least vulnerable of us all.
(I'm not criticising anyone who made a different decision - this was for me and mine)
I let Lindsey know - she was fine and very understanding and there was an iron clad guarantee so that was OK and actually the payment back was made yesterday afternoon. I decided to hold on to the flight because if Ryanair did cancel, I would be entitled to a refund. I accepted that I might lose the flight money but it wasn't all that much really.
So - what was funny about yesterday was that I got an email from Ryanair saying that they had to change the flight timings and gave me the options of . . .
accepting the revised flight
changing to another flight
a full refund (both ways)
Guess which one I took!
I do feel I've got out of it all very lightly and am lucky.
But poor old Lindsey - it's just one thing after another with this trip which was such good fun last year, I gather! She's tearing her hair out.
I went to water the allotment and came back with these.
Today I have a new student first thing and then Beth is coming round for lunch after which we are going to start sorting out what was her work room. In between those two, I have two loads to wash, hang out to dry and get in again - assuming nice, sunny weather. I have to water the allotment at some point too, although I might be able to persuade Beth to do that on her way home again.
Then it is the Slimming World Zoom meeting later on.
So quite a busy day but a very satisfying one.
Take care and stay safe. xx
