Last thursday I went down to London to see a friend`s BA hons degree exhibition.
Cheryl is a very talented lady who makes wedding dresses and also is an embroiderer and patchworker.Her degree was in costume interpretation.
The journey started at 7.40am and the coach was to leave Leeds coach station at 9 am. Coach arrived on time but we were warned that there was an accident on the M1 motorway but it should be open again by 10.30 so would not be a problem.
Life is not always easy and thursday was one of those days, motorway remained closed and we finally arrived in London at 10.15pm instead of 1.30pm. Horrendous, the coach should never have been on the road in the first place as the toilet was not working, you can no doubt imagine what it was like! We finally got to stop at around 7 pm for a toilet break and cup of tea.
Never mind I arrived having missed the show which was a private showing with drinks and nibbles, and boy was I hungry.
Got to Cheryl1s house at 11.40pm.
The coach company agreed to let me return on a later coach the following day so did see the exhibition and just caught the coach home which arrived only 30 mins late.
What a display of theatre costumes, the work was amazing, there were about 24 students, will check to see if I can post a couple of photos on the blog but can not do it without clearing it with Cheryl first (she will still be fast asleep so will add them later)
Visiting London is not on any plans in the near future!! The coach is so much cheaper than the train, think I now know why!!
The good British public did not get irate, could have been very unpleasant if we had had some aggressive people on board, I thought we were all very good about it.
So that is how I spent the day last thursday.
