Oh Dear

My dear readers, I am afraid your suspicions are correct and Mr HenHouse, the Munchkin and yours truly are still currently roughing it somewhere on an island in the middle of the Indian Ocean. We have no idea when we're going to be able to get on a flight back home but we hope it's soon because this beach and those cocktails are getting to be hard work!

We hope you all had a lovely Easter and have fingers crossed that normal blogging action shall soon be resumed. Thanks so much for your very kind concerns.

Bye for now...

  4. Oh my goodness! I do hope you'll be back in time for the fair! This volcano has caused so many problems - I feel so sorry for you having to force down those cocktails.....

  6. Oh dear! Take care and hope you get flights sorted soon. The outlook looks slightly brighter today - but you never know. It's a bit far for the Royal Navy to come and get you I suppose.

  8. Oh it's a hard life Hen!
    If you are going to get back in time for the V & H fair you had better hire a pedalo and start pedalling!

    Enjoy your castaway days while you can!!

    Love

  17. Oh No! It sounds dreadful. Best to just settle down in the sun with another cocktail and make the best of it. It's a dirty job ....

  27. Oh no! No rush, Just get back safely! Could you explain that we need you at the V@H fair!!!

  28. O my. I wasn't sure if that was tongue in cheek or for real. Not the being stranded, that must be a pain, but the cocktails. Still you can get weary of anything after a while. Good luck hope things change soon and you can head home.

  29. Ah, you are now a participant in a historic event. Hoping that participation is not too awful, and that you all will safely be able to return home soon.

    Also admit that I hope that you are taking lots of photos wherever you are, because your travel posts are always a true treat.

  30. Hi, I am very sad for you on an island with so little to do and probably beautiful water to swim in, lovely fesh fish to eat and what else....no time to read, crochet, knit or sew!!!!!
    We have friends stuck in Seoul, Korea, on their flight home to UK from Ausralia. I don't think they are enjoying thamselves quite so much! The must have left Sydney minutes before the stop so bad luck as they could have come to us on the farm for a few more days. I enjoy reading your blog but this is the first time of writing. Enjoy your bonus holiday with your lovely family, Aubrey

  31. Hen, I was beginning to wonder where you were.
    I hope you packed a crochet hook and yarn, to help you through this crises, or you will be having withdrawal symptoms.
    Might as well enjoy the extra down time and hopefully you will be back in your Henhouse soon. Safe travels.

  32. Oh Hen! I was thinking of you and wondering. You poor things, I hope you're able to get back soon. Thank you so much for the lovely Birthday card, I have it sitting next to me as I write, it was a really nice surprise. Would have thanked you sooner if I'd known you have access to the internet. Well, take care, and hope to see you home soon. Love Vanessa xxx

  33. Doesn't sound like the situation is improving very much so make the most of your extended holiday. Knowing Lola-the-cat-sitter will be looking after the other important member of your family must ease any worries of home but I'm sure you will be more than happy to get back to the Henhouse.

  35. Hi Hen

    I thought as much...Oh dear, I hope that the extended stay managed to be a pleasant one rather than the hell some passengers described....
    Good luck and safe journey home.

    Take care
    Warm wishes

  36. oh you poor thing - it sounds dreadful!!
    seriously though... you must be desperate to get back to your den and make more lovely things. At least you have your family with you. Hopefully you will get rescued soon!

  37. Praying for you, and your bank account. Those cocktails are fun, but they can break the bank after a while.

    Maybe God is trying to tell you to relax.

    Seriously, we're all trying really hard to NOT be jealous.
