Greetings my little bloggy friends. I hope all is well with you. I have tried to be good whilst I've been over here with my family, and not gone on the computer very much, so I'm missing out on all your news. I'm sure if you had won the lottery, you would have sent me an e-mail to let me know. Hee Hee!
Anyway, I thought I would just send you this postcard from Paris to let you know that I was thinking of you all.
I will just tell you this little story of when I boarded the plane at Exeter Airport. My seat was by the window, and there was this man sat in the aisle seat. He had made himself very comfortable with legs spread out, and about six newspapers all spread out over the seat that was MINE!! I just tapped him on the shoulder and said, "excuse me, could I just sit down please." He just glared at me and made this huge thing of collecting up all his newspapers (meanwhile, there was a queue of people now behind me, trying to make their way to their own seats) to make room for little old me! I sat down and he immediately put his arm on the armrest and opened up a large newspaper to read it. I should point out that half of the newspaper was now in front of me!
"So that's how it is going to be" I thought to myself. "I won't be eating my banana, or getting my book out to read then." I just didn't have any room to manoeuvre at all! My daughter said that I should have started to read out a piece from the newspaper, saying "gosh, that's a really interesting article, isn't it?" But I'm a wimp, so I said nothing!
I'm pleased to say that my two daughters have no trouble in speaking up for themselves, but why is it that some people just don't seem to think of others at all.
Enjoy your weekend my friends, whatever you might be doing. I'll be in touch again soon.
