09:08 pm: Oh what fun we had
It's been a good day. Eventually we arrived at Euston and from there
it was pretty much straightforward, except for the train that was not
going to Liverpool Street after all.
Then a day at work, varied and exciting as ever, and not suitable for
writing about in a public place, also as ever.
Then on to the extraordinary Christian network meeting, the like of
which I had never seen before.
But now, it's the Metropolitan Line to Wembley Park and, with luck, an
early night. The small number of hours I slept last night need to be
matched by a larger number tonight. On the other hand, it was possible
to doze on the train this morning, somethimg never possible on the
epics from Auckland to Hastings via Matamata, Taupo and Napier ten
years ago or indeed on the Hastings to Wellington route. Let's see
now: Hastings, Waipukurau, Dannevirke, Woodville, Shannon,
Paraparaumu, Wellington. That was how I used to divide that journey
into manageable pieces. Bromborough, Chester, Crewe, Watford Jn,
Euston, Liverpool Street...doesn't work as a division of that journey.
By now, in any case, I'm at Baker Street, Zone 1, just two
Metropolitan Line stations from Wembley Park, Zone 4. That is all.

It is Thursday, not Tuesday

When you have caught up on your sleep, perhaps you might expand on "Then on to the extraordinary Christian network meeting, the like of
which I had never seen before". It would be interesting to know more.

In the entry you commented to here, I didn't say it was Tuesday. That was the other one, talking about the trip to Manchester. When I typed that, it *was* Tuesday.

The Christian networking meeting was extraordinary, because it didn't really resemble any other Christian meeting I have been to: it was more like the secular banking seminars, with people milling around chatting while drinking wine or fruit juice and eating canapes. On the other hand, it was a very encouraging meeting, with over a hundred there from many different churches. I didn't know any of the people there except for the ones who let me know about the event...and I'd only met them at a seminar last week.

Thank you for your emails this week: they were very much appreciated.

Glad you cleared up the confusion about the days of the week. At least there is no confusion today. It is definitely Friday!
