No card, a story and a scream

Yooooohhhoooo everyone well I'm back but after a journey from hell I haven't made a card yet, we had a fantastic holiday the bungalows were set in stunning gardens and so quiet and chilled...bliss...but guess who got stuck in the French air traffic control strike...yep you guessed it...I officially hate Thomson flights, after a 6 hour delay, 2 and a half of which was spent on a plane on the runway we were finally given half a cup of water...wow how generous can a company be lol...the captain decided he would offload the luggage and go another route home which I understand totally but we were promised our luggage would arrive within a few hours but no never appeared...so my underwear is floating around in the canary islands somewhere still or some baggage handlers are wearing it lol...we finally got home at nearly 8am, exhausted and with no luggage (which we still dont have) and no information on when to expect it...stupidly I put my chargers including my camera one in my hold luggage...right you ready cover your ears
AAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
right my screams over so I'm off out to see if I can buy a charger for my camera and make some phone calls to kick some butt at Thomson...wish me luck I need it as I think Im talking to a brick wall lol

oh mina ~so sorry to hear your tale ~ how can they so easily ruin such a fab holiday for you and many others ~ they`ve had your money ~don`t care!!!
i remember such a story for me on my own travelling to and from bangkok many years ago ~ they lost my luggage going out and coming back ~~stuck in india for over 27 hours ~my parents had to travel twice to collect me from the airport (over 12 hours driving), not knowing where i was in the world!!!(they wouldn`t tell them)
i so hope you get your luggage and they listen to you and you can come away with a smile and maybe a little money returned to you

chris said...

pleased your actual holiday was good, but so sorry to hear your story, all you want to do when the holiday is over is just get home,it always seems to take forever getting hhome at the best of times with out delays, and then not having your luggage, I'm not suprised your screaming.
looking forward to your cards, good luck with the charger. hugs chris xx

Hi Mina,
It's great to have you back in the flesh so to speak. Your journey sounds a nightmare. You make sure Thomsons know how mauch effort went into getting those swimsuits - there will be a national outcry if they lose them.
Hugs,

Hi, Mina. I'm so sorry about it. Actually, when we came back from Ireland, we had to wait more than two hours to get our luggage back and arrived home at 3 a.m. but what happened to you is even worse! I hope your luggage come back soon. Hugs. Miria

I guess all those beautiful bows that you put together for me whilst sunning yourself are also in the same set of luggage & therefore missing!!!
Do you need underwear...we could get together & all send you some??

Hi Mina. Glad to hear you had a brilliant relaxing holiday. Hate flight delays and strikes. You would think they would be pleased to have a job at all in the current situation. Anyway, hope you get your luggage back soon and look forward to seeing your cards and maybe some nice photos of your holiday. Donna

pinky said...

Ach glad your holiday was good but thats a rotten end for you. We lost our luggage one year, or should I say they lost it but we did get it back and delivered to the door within 3 days. Hope it turns up. Its always hard to decided where to pack what, but chargers in your hand luggage next time lol.

Oh my, Mina, you must definitely have had your share of bad luck for the rest of this decennium, I would hope ! So sorry to hear, but hope all things will arrive home safely, and sound, and SOOON !!

Glad to hear you enjoyed your holidays when you were there, at least :-)

Sharon said...

Hi Mina. Great to have you back (even if you have deafened half the blogging world, and you are knickerless. lol). Can't say I blame you for doing that scream - What a nightmare!
I do hope your luggage decides to come back from its extended holiday soon. Still, at least you're safely in your own home now and I'm so glad you enjoyed the holiday.
Just keep thinking about that beautiful setting you were in and I bet you feel calm enough to cope with anything.
Sending you a big hug,
Sharon xx

GrammaR said...

I have a very similar story. However, for us, it was on the way to vacation. We needed the vacation after sitting on the plane, the re-routing, sleeping on the airport floor, the...
Now, we can kinda, sorta laugh about it. Actually, I think that is all I remember from that trip. Maybe it doesn't matter which direction you are going, bad flights are always remembered.
Hope you get your luggage soon.
