Busy weekend in London.
I’m sitting on the delayed 12 noon service to Inverness, along with passengers from three other cancelled trains, as we make our way to Lincoln to avoid the damaged rail north of Newark (I’m all in favour of avoiding damaged rails, even if does delay my return to Stirling!).
Managed to hit lots of London experiences (including a severe hit on the wallet – a musical show (Singing In the Rain -don’t bother!), theatre (Hedda Gabbler – great staging, great acting), sport (Djokovic vs del Potro), foodie fun with friends (Tim’s suggestion of the Tokyo Diner Lisle Street – go if you ever get the chance), catching up with Beth, Matthew and friends in their Canonbury and Turnpike Lane flats, meeting up with an educational colleague in IofE and comparing the Scottish and English educational trajectories, sitting on buses without moving, dazzled by the Saturday evening view, east and west, from Waterloo Bridge, gawping at the platform announcement board of King’s Cross, then running to board the train and secure a seat.
