Contents of courtesy bag in sleeper:
After a pleasant meeting with my manager, with mutual stroking of egos
and genuine respect, I got an afternoon train back. Somewhere just
across the border it came to a stop with an announcement that a
lightning strike had disabled the signals. Then, later, another stop
because the train in front had been asked to proceed very slowly
examining the track at a certain stretch. Then, another set of signals
disabled by lightning. Eventually arrived an hour late, about which I’d
probably have been annoyed had I not been four hours late with Friday’s
flight. Thankfully, no more travelling till next week.
Now to get back to the Houdini Box video I was editing when I realised last night I was looking at the wrong clock and nearly missed the sleeper!
