"Today's flight has completely screwed us - it has completely cancelled the trip.

"They said we can claim for compensation but that doesn't really help. I am really frustrated. I was taking my daughter away to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Anyone know why the house would smell of gas when the fire was on/burning???? We have a gas fire in the living room and after being out for a few hours (leaving fire on) we returned to the house smelling of gas , the fire was still burning but it stunk so I turned it off immediately.

"We were just going to go for a short break and because of this it is not doable. There is no point going tomorrow to come back the following day - it would just be far too much for my daughter.

"The little time I have with her I try and do something special, I have taken a full week off work - it really is frustrating."
