Thisisme is feeling very weary this morning as I type out this post, because we didn't arrive home until 2 a.m. after a journey of some eleven hours. No snow this time, but extremely thick fog, so it was a difficult journey. We were also stuck on one of the motorways for almost an hour, because of a bad accident earlier in the afternoon. I hope that no-one was seriously hurt.
Coming back, on the radio, we heard about people in Ireland who haven't had any water for eleven days, due to all the burst pipes when the big thaw came. So I have a lot to be grateful for and I think of all those less fortunate, especially at this time of the year.

I have an apology to make to Mynx from my last post. Mynx was in the Winners' Circle for the Petey Award, and she has pointed out to me that I gave an incorrect link to her Blog. So I must put that right immediately. Please go and check her out at http://just-tish.blogspot.com
Because of travelling for most of the day yesterday, I am afraid that I am a bit slow on commenting on my friends' posts, but normal service has now been resumed and I shall be popping over to see you all shortly, complete with a steaming mug of coffee and a pain au chocolat!
Just one last thing. They say that "God works in mysterious ways...." but I urge you to go and look at Bouncin'Barbs blog http://bouncinbarbs.blogspot.com and read her post entitled "Meant to Be". As my Followers will know, I passed on the Petey Award to Teresa over at In the Middle Side of Life. Well, it turns out that Bouncin'Barb has been through the same thing that Teresa is struggling with right now. They are now in touch with each other by e-mail, and I know that Teresa will find BB's support invaluable. This really does seem like one of those things that happen in life that was surely meant to be.
