I should have been disappointed when I read her message, but actually, I was rather relieved.
I = me, Doriana.

Her family? parents? siblings? children? other relatives?

future plans? school? vacation? (or as our Brit friends say "going on holiday")?

Had you been planning to go on a trip? And it had to be canceled because your friend couldn't go? If so, were relieved because it wasn't really convenient for you, either? Or were you relieved because of your friend's reason for not being able to go? Because you had expected something worse?

Or was someone else plannng to visit you?

Was this trip related to work or school? Or a private one? If latter, did you agree to the trip forgetting about something? Like something you had promised to do with someone else?

Would the trip, or the planning of it, involve a lot of extra work? And you no longer had to do that? Vaccines relevant?

Did you plan to travel by: Foot? Bike? Car? Bus? Train? Ship? Plane?

Had you planned to stay in one place all the time or did you want to visit several towns or something?

The extra work: Planning routes? Getting tickets for whatever mode of transportation you were going to use? Booking hotel rooms? Comparing prices? Looking for places to go to once you were there? Packing your bags? Doing any other kind of preparation?

Was money relevant for your friend? Or forgetting to prepare for the trip? Same questions for you.

You have figured out some of the reasons why I was rather happy and relieved about the cancelled trip, but one is still missing - the main reason that has lead to most of the others

Were you originally planning to go see her?
Did you feel like it was more of an obligation - not for fun?

Event: was it social? legal? religious? work-related?

was going to the music festival your idea? no her idea? yes did she want to go, but you didn't like the music that was going to be there? no, I like the music or some other part of the festival? no and said yes anyway, since you are a good cheezfriend mai doriana kitteh? so, no But then it was cancelled for some reason the trip was cancelled, not the festival itself (do we have to know why? no, not really) and you were relieved then? not for that reason

Here's a recap for you to see what's missing:
My friend sent me a facebook message and told me that she won't be able to go to a music festival that we wanted to go to together. The reason for her cancellation has not been found out yet, but it's not really relevant.
Although I was looking forward to the festival, I was relieved that she wasn't going and decided not to go either. One of the reasons was that I hadn't bought any tickets yet, neither for the train nor for the festival itself. This was caused by another reason that you still have to find out.

BLOOOPER: The reason why she cacelled the trip has been mentioned, it was money. Money was also relevant for me, keep exploring.

did doriana kitteh not have enough money for the train and the festival tickets? or was there something that you knew might possibly happen on the day of the festival or close to it, so you weren't sure if you could really go (for example, a friend or relative of yours might be having a baby on that date, and you'd want to be there for her)

did doriana kitteh not have enough money for the train and the festival tickets? yesish, I would have had to borrow money from momma kitteh. Find out why I was short of money, because this explains the other reason as well. or was there something that you knew might possibly happen on the day of the festival or close to it, so you weren't sure if you could really go (for example, a friend or relative of yours might be having a baby on that date, and you'd want to be there for her) I know that something will definitely happen on the day after the festival, and this is very important

Had you already paid for the holiday? yes Is it relevant where you're going? no, and FA - I've already been there.

Here's the chronological order:
My holiday - my friend's message - our trip - the other important event. The spaces of time in between are important, and that should be enough to solve the puzzle (:

Did you decide on the holiday before? or after? this you and your friend agreed to go to the festival?

Is it relevant how much money you used on your holidays? no

I can now proudly present the
********SPOILER********
My friend sent me a facebook message and told me that she won't be able to go to a music festival that we wanted to go to together because she didn't have enough money.
I was disappointed because I would have loved to go there, but I was also pretty relieved: I had just come home from a trip to Paris so that I was both broke and tired; I hadn't bought any tickets yet because I was busy with other things; and two friends from Finland arrived on the day after the festival and they're staying for a week. Well, this would have been really exhausting so that I'm quite happy I didn't go there (:


Nice work, everyone!
And I won't be online that often this week because of my Finnish friends who are here till Saturday.
