A very long day

Tucked up in my cosy bed at 8 pm after a very, very long day.
Alice has been at home for the Christmas holidays and was due to return tomorrow, but last week phoned up and changed her flight to today.
Her flight back to Moscow from Gatwick was at 7 am which meant that we needed to leave here at 2 am! Managed to get about 3 hours sleep before we set off. Had a good journey and arrived in plenty of time and thank goodness we did. She was told that she was not booked on the flight. All the paper work was in Russian which didn't help. After 2 hours and a credit card payment she eventually had a seat! Said goodbye and see you in the summer!
I got home in time for cup of tea before I had to go to work!
Had to say goodbye to someone leaving work today, so a sad day twice over.

You must be emotionally shattered, saying goodbye is very hard. Hope you get some rest :)

That's a cozy bed!! I think few things are as wonderful as curling up in a warm bed with clean sheets!
I'm sorry you had to say goodbye to your daughter and friend, but at least your daughter comes back in the summer!
Much love to you,
