Even if I spoke Icelandic I'm not sure I could pronounce the name of the volcano that's just stuffed up our travel plans.
We were due to fly out tonight but the travel ban has been extended yet again and Emirates have just confirmed our flight is cancelled.
Just my luck. I've been reading in the Daily Telegraph: "Britain to bask in spring heatwave. The south will experience a ten-day heatwave" with temperatures possibly soaring to...wait for it...*gasp*...20C.
Now we'll have to stay here where there's not a heatwave. It's only 33C today apparently.
At least it happened before we travelled, so we're not part of a reported seven million people stranded because of the unpronounceable volcano.
The Royal Navy is being called in to collect stranded Brits, and some of them will be getting a lift home on the aircraft carrier Ark Royal. I wouldn't mind that, it sounds an exciting end to a holiday to me.
