London Calling - 1

I headed for London this afternoon, to meet up with Carey, Antoinette and Angela. We’ve booked a table at one of our favourite haunts – ‘EV’ (part of the Turkish ‘TAS’ restaurant chain) near Waterloo.

Well, it was great to catch-up, and seemed like ages since we’d done this (it wasn’t that long ago!). The food and service (as always) was excellent, and unusually, the place wasn’t heaving (just very busy), which made  it for me, a more pleasurable experience.

It seemed like we’d only just got talking when I realised that it was 8pm and I needed to leave in order to catch my ‘timed-train’. A real shame that I had to go just when the conversation was starting to flow, but I guess that’s the disadvantages of living so far away from London! I nearly fell asleep on the train, which wouldn’t have helped as it finishes in Derby!!!

The train arrived in Kettering just before 10, and I was home just before 10.15. It had been a great evening, but I felt exhausted and due to some bonkers planning on my part, I’m in London tomorrow too, and didn’t think to sort out some accommodation! Doh!!!
