Hi Sammy Like some of the others I haven't added to this thread before but have been following it. I couldn't find it today and wondered what had happened - sorry to hear the trip has been cancelled, hope it can be re-arranged soon, and best wishes for a positive outcome. Michelle

That must have been so very disappointing for him, getting all psyched up. But may be it was meant to be and when he does go things will at least satisfy him. God bless.


Linda Report 3 Aug 2005 00:23

oh sammy. sorry to hear the littlun is poorly, but she must come 1st, I do hope she recovers very fast so she can enjoy her holiday`s! your BIL will have to try and make arrangements not too far in the near future to make that most important journey of his life , with hope of him getting a positive response! Thinking of you all Linda x

I hope this isn't fate taking a hand... but the trip has had to be postponed. My sister & BIL's 7yr old daughter is very ill, she was running a high temp on Monday apparently and today has been absolutely full of cold, very sleepy, very hot and extremely miserable, understandably. I was booked to look after the elder 2 children and the youngest was going to my other sister. Beside's my sister not wanting to leave her, other sis is a child-minder and responsible for 3 others tomorrow, as well as her own 2 boys, so having a sick child is not an option. I work so she cannot come to me ill or not, and of course all she wants is her mum anyway. Can you imagine them being all geared up (and you & I are too!) and it's all had to be shelved. I'm sure they will go very soon, within the next couple of weeks, but as you know these things are not so easily arranged when there are children to organise. There was me hoping to bring you all fabulous news tomorrow, fingers-crossed we wont be waiting too long Sam

Like the others have been following the thread with interest and have just popped in to wish BIL well tomorrow. I think they both will get something very rewarding from this meeting at last. Good Luck Kx


Dianne Report 2 Aug 2005 18:45

Popping in to wish BIL all the best for tomorrow. Have been following this thread for some time now, and after all his bad luck recently, things must change for him soon. Hopefully tomorrow will be the start of better things for him. I do hope so. Dianne xx

Hi Sammy Like a lot of others I have watched with interest this thread. I also have never added to it. I would like to wish your BIL all the best for Wednesday and hope he gets a good outcome from it all. He sounds like a really nice guy and he is lucky to have you as an inlaw someone who really cares about him. Tell him to be strong whatever the outcome. Best Wishes Kindest Regards Jackie

I've been following this thread too. I wish your sis and BIL all the very best for tomorrow; am so glad he's decided to go to Wales. My thoughts are with them - look forward to receiving some good news from the Mum front. Take care Jan

Hi Sam Well I took your advice + am not going on holiday! LOL We decided it was going to be too busy due to school hols + also the weather is so miserable, so are just going out for days. I just wanted to wish BIL all the best for tomorrow...THINK POSITIVE, be confident and GO for it. His Mother must have thought in the back of her mind that he would want to see her sometime.(I know I would have) Who knows it may *lay the ghosts to rest* for her. Anyway, I wont ramble on.......Take care. Love Ann x
