Scotland trip cancelled

We were all set to spend a week in Scotland. Had a cottage booked, serviced the car and even bought snow suits for any eventuality - we were hoping that it might snow over there. However, it appears that we won't be able to go. My son is teething - he has four new teeth coming out and is in a great deal of pain. He is not eating and drinking much and we were quite worried when he came down with fever day before yesterday

We had hoped that he would get better by today but that was not to be. He's in a bad mood the whole day and it really breaks my heart to see him grimacing with pain. So we finally decided to cancel the trip. A call to a friend also confirmed our fears - that the money won't be refunded.

It was a bit of a downer but I tried to look at the bright side - we saved on fuel and other expenditure and it's probably too cold to enjoy ourselves over there. A case of sour grapes, I know but it certainly helps us feel better a bit.

What are those photos on top of your blog? They are just great. Is it your college or something else?

Poor boy, I can imagine the pain. Hope it will go away soon.

too bad to hear about that, adam. hope your son is feeling better now.

did you pay the money to a tour company? they won't even refund you some small percentage?

Hi Vijay, thanks for your comments. The photographs on the top are from my Flickr album.

Emila: Thanks.

Lucia. 2 teeth are already out but 2 more still cutting through the gums. Looks like it will be a few more days before he is totally OK.

We actually booked through a friend. I guess it's too late because we were supposed to start today.
