Storm Doris and Trains

Storm Dorris

23 February 2017 has seen the UK hit by Storm Dorris. High winds throughout most of the country and snow in Scotland. It’s now almost 10:30 in the evening and we’re on our way down to London to the Bridging the Gaps event at the Tate Modern tomorrow. This is the first event of its kind that I have attended and I have been asked to blog about the experience. So the plan was to travel down to London the night before so that we’d be all ready and raring to go in the morning!

We will be of course but with slightly less sleep than we’d hoped for! We had originally planned to arrive in London at 10 pm, but it will be more like midnight when we eventually do. Several cancelled trains later and we’ve finally made it onto one. We bought ourselves some cheap first class tickets, but when we arrived at Nottingham station and realised we’d have a considerable wait for the first available train, we found to our amazement that the first class lounge wasn’t open! Nottingham station doesn’t have seats on the station concourse because they’re untidy, their words not mine, so it was a long stand.

Time to sit back now and attempt to relax for the next hour and a half The dog is snoozing contentedly so all is good for now.

About Mel Griffiths

I live and work in Nottingham, England and am blind. This blog is often centred around things that happen to me because of being blind. This is my space to write and sometimes people will disagree with what I write, but its the one place I have in which to be frank and honest. I also like to reflect on the funnier side of life from time to time.
