"Good, please do so". So sorry guys and gals I won't be seeing you in London today. I'm sure you'll have a good old laugh at my expense (I'm certain that I would if roles were reversed) and have a couple for me. Must remember to check train schedules next time.
If you'd got the bus to Maidenhead we'd now most likely be on the same train. Would've been an adventure getting home, though.
mind you, nothing new there.
