Missed it

For the second time this month, the bus I travelled in, homeward bound this time, had a collision. Again, no one was hurt, but the delay meant I missed Obama being sworn in as the new president of the US. How lame is it going to be later, when people ask "where were you when America inaugurated their first black president?", that my answer is going to be "stuck in traffic"?

I think I was in Sainsburys. I have no idea what time it was, so I can't say what I was doing.

Yup, you've definitely got me beat at lameness!

I was tucked up in bed asleep. Perhaps I'll regret that later, but short of a day off today, there wasn't much choice.

I'm sure it'll get played over and over and over until we're sick of it anyway. :)

    That must have been so hard, on both of you! Now she can settle in and you can relax.

    I feel your pain - it took me weeks to clean Frank's room.

    It must be a relief to have seen her sitting and chatting.

    I wish you well with the house clearing. I'm not sure if this is helpful - but it took my sister and I at least one full day a week for a…
