This week has been a bit of bust if I was honest.
Yesterday I’d planned to meet with Nu in London.
We were looking forward to a chat and something nice to eat and the spectacle of English National Opera’s Its a wonderful life.
But then British Railways had a meltdown day with excuses galore why no trains were leaving Crewe for London yesterday morning.
Our somewhat cynical guard told us three reasons for the hold up. Overhead cable problems, people on the line , and congestion of traffic but he knew those didn’t bode well as three services to London had already been cancelled due to lack of staff.
I had planned to be in London before 2 pm.
I was still stat on a train in Crewe station at 2pm so with a heavy heart, like many other passengers I turned and got the Chester train home.
Seeing Nu was just what I needed.
I have a 2500 word essay to complete for collage on a Monday, and the rest of the week hasn’t been the kindest so Remembering Peter Kay in Phoenix Nights and “ What would Thora Hird do?”
I’ve downloaded some “ nice” movies , ( including The Holiday with Kate Winslett) , bought a large lasagne and intend to spend the day mooching on the sofa
