To be really disappointed...

...that I won't be able to make a v good friend's engagement party tonight because of the snow? MIL was due to babysit but can't get here because her road is knee deep in the stuff (obv wouldn't expect her to try to drive over in this weather). I just feel really sad - I'd been looking forward to this so much, it would be my first night out in months and (more importantly) it's not just any old party, it's a big celebration for my friend (who I haven't seen for a few months and was v excited to be seeing her). I know it's just bad luck (and am not blaming MIL - just to be clear, this isn't a MIL rant) but I feel really sad about this. Grrr! Bloody snow!

YANBU.

But will your poor friend's party be missing many people because of the snow? Perhaps she'll have to postpone it herself.

Is there no-ne else at all that could babysit?

SSD - love the name, v appropriate!
No-one else around to babysit unfortunately.
Friend's party will be ok to go ahead, as it's in city centre and most of the guests work (and quite a few live) round there, so they will be in the area and won't have difficulty getting around. It's only further out of the centre that the roads are screwed up. I hate living out here!

It is SO disappointing when stuff like this happens.

<sympathy>

Could you go and get her? Or get a taxi for her?

Real shame if you would have to miss the night out.

Oh, how rubbish. You sound like a lovely friend, too.

Maybe you and she can go for cocktails and a debrief later on, when the snow's gone?

(poor substitute I know).

I'd offer to have them here but probably a bit weird of me blush and we probably live at different ends of the country!

Sorry that you cannot go sad
