black king

Live from Crewe

It was a very good night, as The Police played through most of their
hits and a selection of their other stuff too.
The night went on late and it was well after midnight before we were
home, nearly one before we were in bed.
So up at 5.15 wasn't ideal, but here I am at Crewe, waiting for the
07.15 to leave Crewe at 07.48 as it often does.
Then it's usually just under two hours to Euston and a few minutes
across town to Liverpool Street. But the regular readers know that.
It's just that it's noit often on a Wednesday.
The sign on the platform has changed from 'on time' to '07.52'...
A couple of hours snooze would be welcome, but just at the moment I
feel wide awake. Off we go! The rest of the week starts here...

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.
