Saw Megs this morning on the train. I was running late, and she was running a bit early. Urgh, just think of that – going to college at 7.45am. When I was in the 6th form, I’m sure I never even got up before 8am. At least I get paid for the early thing now! *g*
Noticed odd stuff this morning. Mainly cos once Megs got off the station before me, I moved over to sit on the other side of the train. I hadn’t realised it before, but I always sit on the same side, so today I had a whole new view. And there was this little warp in the glass of the window, which was just at about head-height for the passengers standing on the station, and did strange and comical things to their faces. Heh. Then I saw a giant metal spider in a field – it was a climbing frame. Very scary. And on the kind of patch of wasteland that I guess the travellers must use, there were a couple of ponies, and some goats. A couple of the goats were those really long haired ones. Maaaaah. I knew a goat called Louise when I was little. There’s a pic somewhere. I’ll stick it up when the rest of this site happens.
Train pulled into a different platform to normal, too. Honestly, the trains up here really have no rhyme or reason to them. They actually apologised for the delay today, though, which makes a change. All the stations are those big long shed things like you get on Thomas the Tank Engine (or you used to….. don’t know if that still does) too. They were filming something in the station here the other week – I was told it was a remake of Murder on the Orient Express, but I haven’t been able to find anything on the net about it. Could be a BBC drama thing, of course. Didn’t see any of the actors except from the distance, at an angle (in a wood, with an owl….) so dunno if David Suchet was Poirot-ing it up again…….
