My date with Doris and the 3 errors of my ways…

My crazy date with Doris last week and the 3 errors of my ways…

Error no.1

Last week I heard people mention #StormDoris and that it was bad up North, however, I didn’t think that referred to little old me and my journey!

Error no.2

I got on a train!

Error no.3

I tried to travel on said train

The gift I received for my adventure into the unexpected

8 trains over 8 wonderful hours

A lovely surprise visit to Reading and then 3 hours in lovely Birmingham station with some other happy travellers 😀

Then for a final couple of hours on the train back to lovely Manchester with my fellow passengers…

Just in time to get home for the ‘Ten o’clock News’ to live it all over again in widescreen!

Thank you Doris, you’re great! 😀
