Y4 - 157/365: Long Train Running (Late)
I was at Small Heath station this afternoon in plenty of time for the train, however, the train wasn't in time for any of the eagerly waiting passengers. One older man joked with me that the next train wasn't expected until after 8pm and I very nearly believed him until I saw his mates behind him watching for my reaction and half-chuckling.
Since I didn't have any extra money for bus fare, I checked on my phone and saw that it was just 2.5 more miles to walk into the city and catch another train straight from Birmingham Moor Street. So off I went.
In the end it wasn't as bad as I thought, but I was absolutely exhausted by the time I got home.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
