Less Pain...

Got a temporary fix for my tooth yesterday - hopefully getting it sorted permanently tomorrow morning...

Family stuff is gradually getting less stressful and complicated - might even be good by next week!

The planes are starting to fly again! This is, of course, good to see but am I the only person concerned about the change in safety levels of ash in the air? The airlines were clearly desperate to get flying again, but I have a terrible feeling that wasn't helped by the appearance of a pilot on TV last night talking about how when you fly in the far east you are always going through ash clouds! And now, of course, we are in for a session of "we were prevented from flying for no reason, we want compensation from the government!" Gah!

Ah well, lunchtime now. Hoping to be able to meet up with Mrs RC and my daughter who are in Canterbury this morning. Hope the shopping bags aren't too big :-)

UPDATE - Shopping bags not too big, but got bigger under my influence - "Ooh that smells great, get some of that!" Oh well...

Good to hear that you were able to alleviate some of the pain. Tooth pain is no fun.

I'm sure there will be some uproar from the airline industry. Isn't that the way it goes? Something unexpected happens and someone finds a way to gain compensation for it.

Enjoy lunch with the Mrs. and the daughter!

Terri - Thanks - lunchtime was great!

Well you cannot blame them as they lost billions of euros / dollars because of the ash clouds. But I call it very irresponsible to ask compensation from the government or anyone. It's not like somebody ask the mountain to play black fountain.

Blame the volcano. Ask it to cough up some cash. :P

Shadowthorne - Could always blame Iceland - it was THEIR volcano, they should have kept it under control!

You're so funny. Hope the wife and daughter don't have too many shopping bags and then you add to them. Sorry to hear about your tooth pain. Ouch.

Nothing worse than toothache. Hope you are feeling better.

They can gripe all they want but the airlines have an "acts of God" clause that pretty much exonerates them from being sued. Of course, that won't stop people from trying.

Good to hear you got to do lunch with Mrs RC & daughter. You can never have too much of that time.
