I went out of the house with my earphones on (walking like a true Londoner in high-speed!) and saw two buses zoom past me. “Don’t worry about it, you’ve given yourself 2 hours to do a one hour journey, it’s ok” I thought. So, I get to the stop and see another full bus go past. I must admit, now I start to worry (I can’t stand to be late!). Luckily another bus comes, I get on and have the feeling I need to rush.
I was right, after running from the stop to the station and seeing the train on the other side (with a flight of stairs up and down between us) I run for it.
Now, here’s where the story gets better – the train man (with a whistle, technical word welcomed!) sees me after he’s blown his whistle and gets the train to wait for me, how wonderful is that?!
Well, it’s all great from there. I get to Waterloo with time to spare (I mean an hour!), pick up a scrambled egg and roast tomato sandwich, wait for the jubilee line of which the first is ram-packed and the next has space. Hoorah, no squidging for Hannah.
Needless to say, the event was great (bar not being able to feel my toes) and because of one person being so wonderful to hold the train for a few seconds, my day had become positive.
In the words of Dinah Liversidge in her Choice Blog you can Choose to be positive 🙂
