Volcanic ash closes parts of British air space again!!

Airports in parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland closed from 0700 BST because of risks from volcanic ash.

Glasgow, Prestwick and Derry are likely to be closed all day, while there are plans to shut Inverness in the morning only, and Belfast in the afternoon. The CAA advised air passengers to check with airports before travelling and warned the situation was changeable. Last month, volcanic ash clouds from Iceland grounded flights for six days. The situation in the skies has been changing hour by hour, meaning the picture for air travellers is unclear. Dublin Airport will also close from 1100 BST until further notice.

Disguising Christmas Presents

I have this uncanny knack of fooling my family into what they are recieving for Christmas.  Its all about the wrapping which i am not a fan of.  I can make a boxed game look like a football and as for wierdly shaped boxes or packages, forget it.  So it is a standing joke within my family that all their presents will be a ‘surprise’ even though they have asked for it!!!

Car calamity

So, eventually I have found a new car, however due to being at work and as you can see from my previous blog I did not want to let this one go.  So my father went to view the car and as i trust his judgement I believed that this was the right decision.  Oh how wrong was I.  Unfortunately as he was viewing the car, his own car was crashed into by another driver, writing it off.  So at the moment my family has has its fair share of motoring accidents.  Oh Happy Christmas!!
