My in-laws are leaving Libya. If it all goes to plan they fly out first thing on Tuesday morning. Can everyone keep things crossed for them that it goes smoothly? Ta.

G and I have been constantly searching online and watching all the TV new channels, trying to keep abreast of what's going on and get as much concrete info as we can for them. It's been tricky since the internet went down, but at least the phones were still working.

Can't help feeling Tuesday morning's a long time away though.

Cheers guys. G and I have been online every chance we get, but we're constantly searching the newsfeeds, government sitses, Twitter, Facebook and so on to see what we can find out. Hasn't left much time for the more pleasant online stuff, so sorry for neglecting you all.

Currently trying to find out if protests have broken out in Tripoli. Really hope they haven't.

everything crossed here. I'm sure they'll be fine.

Lack of news probably make it all seem much worse.

Do keep us posted hun big_hug

Crossing everything available, and will crawl through a few clover patches and see what I can find!

If you can't be a shining example, be a terrible warning!

It worked! Thanks guys.

Our guys made it to Paris late this afternoon 🙂 They're safe. We've been catching up all night and it's great 🙂

Off to bed now - knackered after the past few days! Night all x
