Gonna Be A Loooooong Day

Well,,, my day has not yet finished.... We're currently sat in Holyhead port waiting for a ferry to take us to Ireland so that we can visit my dying mother in law in hospital.... :(

Our ferry back to Blighty is booked for 2:15am tomorrow (Tuesday) morning so we won't get back home until maybe 8am... So that'll be 48hrs of being up except maybe for a couple of hours on the boat!!

Could be worse I suppose

We got home at 03:00 Sunday after a long/delayed ferry trip home from Jersey, not the most comfortable of seats to kip in so I feel for you.

I feel for you, 

Just wondering maybe, why book a boat back so soon,?

Well... It got worse.....

While we were waiting in the port terminal she passed away, so we came back home to arrange for a longer stay. We're now booked on a ferry this evening with a return booked for Friday (will probably be changing this though)

Stenna have been very good in transferring our tickets without any charge

Its a long start as to why we booked a day trip return but the main reason was because that's what Mrs Noz originally wanted so who am I to argue

Sorry to hear that, such a shame and sad, so difficult when you lose a family member, thinking of you all.

Well we've just stepped back onto the ferry home....

Its all been a bit of a blur to be honest with not much sleep for any of the family especially over the last 3 days when my mother in law was brought back to the house and then the turnout has been amazing, they reckon there were over 500 people at the church and the same if not more at the grave.... Lovely to see

Sorry to hear Noz, twice to Ireland in a week. What did you think of the superfast 10?

Didn't go the first time....

How the he'll do they have the cheek to call it "Superfast X",,, it blinking takes 3 1/4 hours, the regular takes 3 1/2 hours and the now mothballed HSS only used to take 1 1/2 hours

Apart from that it isn't too bad a ship,, we've been on it (over and back) a couple of times now... Got to go over again in a month and then again for my brother in laws wedding in October

The only problem is though is that you don't go up to the upstairs lounge any more,,, straight though to a coach and straight onto the ship...

I will deffo give you a shout if I'm passing through during office hours though.. IIRC we ended up on the 20:30 going out and to be honest we weren't up for socialising...

I love Jersey. We were there first week of July. Not too keen on the new Condor Liberation, the old Express/Rapide were more comfortable and felt more stable. Also seated in 2's.

 

Did you have a good time?

 

Noz - sorry to hear about MIL. Hope you all OK?

Noz,

Sorry to hear of your loss, so sad, so young really.

 

Hope all is as well as can be.
