Disappointment to a noble soul is what cold water is to burning metal;
it strengthens, tempers, intensifies, but never destroys it
P has been looking forward to the international 41 Conference in Finland for over a year now!
Things have changed with his working situation and suddenly we weren't so sure if this trip was a good idea!
Weighed up the pros and cons and decided to continue with it!
Then the volcano came - flights weren't leaving for European destinations and his trip became the subject of "shall I, shan't I" again?
He was supposed to leave last night.
He didn't go!
Got notification of a HUGE meeting on Wednesday morning.
If he had gone, he would have missed the meeting and jeopordised a very sensitive situation.
He wasn't MEANT to go.
He is very disappointed.
