Fuel update

Still no diesel!!

This is exactly a week since we went to fill up and there was no diesel left in our nearest town.

For the last two days we have been working from home.

We have just a quarter of a tank left.

I have been checking the websites to see where the deliveries are, then calling the garages to see if there is any diesel left, but no luck so far. When I asked if they knew when the next delivery would be I was told that they ask for a delivery every day but do not know if there will be one!

Still don't know if we can get the plane on Monday. I think we will have to make a final decision on Sunday whether we can go or not.

I think we may have to deal with a very unhappy teenager next week and my mum will be very disappointed too.

Poor you. I was disapointed at the begining of the year when just as I was going to book to come to France this week (for half term) the boiler got condemmed and we were hit with a £3000 bill - scuppering my plans, but I am a big believer in everything happening for a reason, and am glad we have made the decision (well, the boiler made the decision!)to have a staycation. Hope it gets sorted soon xxx

I think you made the right decision. You probably would have got here OK but maybe you would have struggled to get home.
Have a nice week next week

No posts - so I am guessing you managed to get away. I hope so. xxxxx
