We had a lunch on the station. Viv had something from Upper Crust, I had something from Harry Ramsden and the two boys had Burger King. Matthew missed out on the trip as he was still at school.
Then we found a photo machine and sat David in it so that we would have a picture for his railcard. As we set off to buy the railcard, we heard that the lines north of Watford were closed as a result of a serious fatality in Milton Keynes. We wondered what other sort of fatality there is. As it turned out, the delays to trains were short-lived, and the 3:17p.m. left on time.
Our trip north passed without further event, except for asking David a great many questions, of course.
After we got home, he unpacked a bag containing farewell gifts, Christmas presents and other things. Then we called Domino's - Pizza Hut don't deliver here - and had a pizza supper before we popped out to Betty's.
Return home, catch up with some email and LJ and then on our way to bed soon, as it's interview day again tomorrow.
It occurred to me a couple of days ago that bringing David back into England on the winter solstice probably isn't the brightest, but that's the way it's been.
