All excitement at the station today, I don’t know how I contained myself.
It was delivery day for ice cream drinks etc. The excitement of receiving a box of plastic spoons has to be experienced to be appreciated.
Nobody about except for a couple who came on the platform about an hour before the first train, they looked at the times and then beat a hasty retreat as soon as they heard me, my fame must be spreading.
First train was late, but what the hell it always is on a Wednesday when we have school parties.
Delivery arrived and once unloaded and put away I went home. Hard to find motivation on an empty station with no passing public and as I was single manned I could not hold hands with others and try and contact the living.
So there ended an average Wednesday at Orton Mere.
Brian with me on Saturday so at least if we are quiet he will have bought a newspaper I can read. Never let it be said I don’t look on the positive side of life!!!
