my brother was flying out tonight from dublin, imigrating. rang me at 3 to say flights delayed due to snow. another call an hour later to say flights cancelled, so i had to try and get a hotel near the airport for him, he had no cash, no credit cards, so im shattered now ringing around all evening, eventually got him one thank god. he got the last seat on tomorrows flight too so hopfully it will take off in the morning. think i'll open a nice bottle of wine tonight, i need it!!
