Went down to London yesterday for my oldest friend’s hen night. Had to travel from here to Hammersmith to a friend’s house in the afternoon. this meant a bus to Nottingham station, a train to Grantham because there were no direct trains due to the inevitable holiday engineering works. Then a train to King’s Cross, followed by a tube jurney to Hammersmith, finally a bus to the friend’s house. Before i went I was incredibly nervous and had it not been my oldest friend, i’d probably have bottled out.
So glad I didn’t. I pre-booked assistance and in the main, it worked well. Apart from at King’s Cross, there was someone to meet me at every stop. Staff on London Underground were particularly helpful, one guy even took me out of the station at Hammersmith to find my bus. People were just as helpful on my return today, apart from Nottingham staff who failed to turn up but what’s new!
So am feeling quite pleased with myself tonight. The fact that I got from this house to west London without falling back on a taxi once is quite an achievement for me.
The hen night was great and it was so good to catch up with friends. Wedding’s in three weeks.
P.S. Here’s to Corrie, she’s a horse’s arse!
