A little after 6 o’clock this evening, I arrived into Bicester North, and there, on the platform waiting for me was Emma. I’ve never had a girlfriend meet off a train before, and it was a very nice feeling. Not so nice, was the feeling a week before, when it felt (particularly for Emma) that she was waving her loved one off on the train to war. Tonight, it certainly helps in beating the post-holiday ‘flatness’ that I would have otherwise have fallen into after being in such a gorgeous part of the country with a good bunch of people 24/7.

No weirdoes on this holiday either, this time round. That was unusual. Still, more stories of my adventures will follow in due course, in the usual form… 🙂
