Feeling sad.

I'm feeling rather sad today.

My niece is getting married in Norfolk in a couple of weeks and I've been really looking forward to it.  I had the hotel booked and paid for in  mid June and have been counting the weeks ever since.

But, now, John is in the middle of a long drawn out series of hospital tests and has been told he mustn't drive.  There's no way I can drive to Norfolk and back without someone else driving too, so I've had to cancel my hotel booking and write to the bride's mother saying that we can't come.  It would be too difficult to go by train from Newcastle, especially as I would have to take my disability scooter with me.

I can't remember the last time I've looked forward to something so much, or the last time I've been so disappointed.

I'm wondering now whether I shall be able to get any kind of refund for the hotel, as the phone number is, ominously, not taking incoming calls.  

Oh well !!

I ought to have known I wouldn't have the lovely weekend I've been looking forward to.
