Long lost friend found

We woke up at Bernie and Sarah's and were greeted with breakfast..Crumpets!! We then left for the station where we met Thomas who was our new crew for the next couple of weeks. Tom was dropped of to us by Lou and the rest of the boys. After waving our goodbyes at the station we made our way to Paddington. We picked up a McDonald's, one of Thomas's favourites, and then Al bumped into a long lost friend who she has known for over forty years, but hasn't seen for the last 10 years, Chrissie...
After a lot of tears... as you can imagine they had loads to talk about... It just so happened she was going on the same train as us... so they chatted some more... after exchanging numbers we all parted at Reading and Chrissie went on to Swansea and Pembroke Dock. We arrived back in Pangbourne at 3.00pm and it was nice to be back home. Thomas got into relax mode straight away...

Hi Jo, I know, such a small world. I'd just made the last minute decission to pop into boots at the station, and in doing so, passed the table Chrissie was sitting at having a coffee!! Fate or what!! Put a big grin on my face for the rest of the day :-) x
