Spoke too soon
I spoke too soon about my trains. It’s been a disaster. All week my trains have been late and last night they shut the entire London Bridge station, so I had to pay (on top of my travelcard) to get all the way home. That’s two tube trips I’ve had to pay for this week (one on Tuesday too, for an appointment that got cancelled). Jeez, I’m not made of money. Ah well, at least I wangled a free bus journey by pretending to have a valid ticket. Yeah, I know, bad, but it’s swings and roundabouts – so many delays, cancellations and so much rudeness – it’s my own little way of claiming back!
