Today we were up early for our trip to Tamworth to see our dear friends Jo and Chris. On the bus to Aldgate Station by 8.15 am. Changed from the Underground to the National Rail at Euston, where we had time for a coffee before our train to Tamworth departed at 9.46am.
The train was comfortable, quite and fast. We were met at Tamworth Station by Chris for the short drive to their house. We spent a couple of hours sitting chatting and cuddling the new arrival Miss Emily Grace, who is very tiny and just perfect. Jack was understandably shy to start, but that soon wore off:)
We then went to one of the local pubs for lunch, where we spent more time laughing and talking, and before we knew it, it was 4.30pm. John decided he would walk back along the canal to Jo and Chris's house, apparently chatting to some people who live on their narrow boats.
After a somewhat, short and very sad goodbye to Jo at the house, Chris then drove us back to catch the 5.20pm train - which we missed by about a minute !!! The train was at 6.20pm, and thankfully we had purchased a flexible ticket. The train was about 10 mins late arriving back into Euston, so we made our way back to the apartment.
