Worth repeating

The little girl is well (not really because she has a cold) and still looking for work in London. She called yesterday and asked if I had checked my blog lately. I check it just about every day and noticed that there was one comment that needed moderating but I thought nothing of it at the time nor did I read the comment right away because I was short of time. Well, it turns out that she had read my blog and commented on a post I had written about her on Saturday September 12th, called "Update." Many of you wrote comments on that post and she wanted to respond.

Here is her comment.

"I had to write to say thanks to everyone's well wishes from my mom's posting.

things are fantastic in london and even went to the "shire" in the cotswolds last weekend which is always beautiful and my ex-boyfriend's family take me in like one of their own.

I'm still job hunting in London (if anyone knows of anything :) hint hint!) hehe

really thank you all though!and love ya mom!great pics


So, I just want to say thank you too.

What caring and beautiful friends you are! Thank you for that.

Ayla emailed to say that they did indeed land safely - she had no phone or laptop internet connection since her UK convertors did not work there. There was only one public use computer at the hotel that they were staying. The keyboard took some getting used to (as her brother had warned) and their free breakfast consisted of such a variety of food that they were able to make lunch for themselves too.
The flight to England is to be at 4:30 in the early morning hours of Sunday and jet lag had hit even though the time change was only 4 hours (her words). They were spending the last day checking out more of Reykjavik's sights such as the national gallery and perhaps meeting up with a couple from New York who were staying at the same hotel.
Once in England, they are going to be met by her friend and she will email and/or phone again.
