Happy New Year ... yeah right ...

Posted 30-01-2014 at 16:01 by shillelagh

typical .. new year new start they say ... yeah right .. as if ... Came back from the spugsters on the sunday ... 5th jan ... why is it everytime I travel something goes wrong. Last year it was having a fit on the train coming back and my sister having to pick me up in preston.

This year I didn't have a fit ... this year the flipping train was late into preston missed the train from preston to accy so had to wait for the next one. Next one arrives on a different platform .. so had to cart everything over both bridges back to where id got off the one from Glasgow. We all got on the train and then an announcement - we are going to be late setting off ... theres a problem further on down the line between bamber bridge and pleasington we will be delayed about 5 mins. Then another announcement about 5 mins later .. delayed about another 10 mins ... then another announcement .. this train is cancelled!!!! I asked the ticket collector would the problem be fixed in time for the next train .. and he said I don't really know!!! My brother was to pick me up in accrington so I rang him and told him what had happened and asked him if he'd come and pick me up in preston. I'll meet you at the front of the station he said. I said it'd be better at the side of the station he said wheres that? so I said don't bother just meet me at the front. So I was stood at the front of the station waiting for him. He appears behind me ... and said what you doing here? I said this is the front of the station .. he said oh well im over the bridge .. I thought that was the front!!! Well eventually got home about 8.45pm!!! should have been home about 6.45pm!!!

so that was the journey back to sunny Lancashire .... im going to have to go ... my nephews just turned up ... so i'll be back to tell what else has happened later ..

    Happy New Year Jen.
    I hope this year is better for you than the last one.
    You always seem to have excitement(if that is the right word) when you travel.
