Things that take longer than expected

This is a totally irrelevant picture of Cassie. I have nothing particular to say this evening since I've spent most of the day editing the church magazine. This is in addition to the hours I spent on it yesterday and the day before and the not inconsiderable time that Mr Life spent doing some of the technical stuff earlier. I would like to think that people will go "Wow! Impressive!" when they get it... but I suspect that they won't. It's astonishing how long it takes to footer about with things to get them looking right(ish) and to find suitable little illustrations to cheer it all up.

It's quite fun, though.

Less fun is what we're also doing, which is waiting for time to pass. Daughter 2 was supposed to arrive for the weekend at about twenty to midnight but her train has been delayed - as have lots of others - because someone has vandalised the signals on her route. Currently she's in York, which is some hours from here, and the train that she's been transferred on to isn't moving yet. The information suggests that she may get in about 2 am, but I imagine that this is a bit speculative. Since she has to go back down again about 36 hours later, this is all very trying. Ho hum.

Cassie is very handsome. I hope your daughter arrives, safe and sound!

Waiting is so hard. I don't think our daughter has flown down here once when her flight wasn't delayed both coming and going.
Did Cassie help with the editing?

Poor girl !
Youngest Daughter's train journey up here never , ever takes the advertised three hours . The reasons for the delays range fom "cow on the line" through "heavy rain" to "insufficient rolling stock to meet current demand".
But it takes a big chunk out of a looked forward to weekend .
