Is that the London eye falling down?

I don’t think a trailer works like this!

1 1/2 hour delay and we’ve arrived in Dudley street.
It’s the sun again – just lower in the sky at 8.05pm as we approach Warrington where I leave the coach after a longer than anticipated trip.
Hot but happy to be back with hubby. Added bonus is that my Trekinetic K2 wheelchair survived another trip – Lancashire to London and back – entirely on public transport 😁🥰

Waiting for the 3pm FlixBus to Warrington via Birmingham. Getting through this virus shawl at a really good rate with all the waiting for transport 😁

The madwoman in the mask again!

Safely aboard the northward bound coach. Wish me luck because it is Friday afternoon all the way up the M1 and then the M6 😱

Bus 139 across London was long but enjoyable. Sadly the English football fans have zero respect for the environment and the poor council that has to clean up their mess after the game!

I had to wait 29 minutes but my Uber driver from Monday’s trip picked me up and it took just 15 minutes to Colindale. The journey consisted of a huge number of pubs with fans spilling onto the pavement. I’m happy that the pubs are doing very well from the match, but I can assume that in three weeks the Covid rates will spike as a result of zero social distancing!

Altogether a good trip from SE London to NW London. It took 4.5 hours but didn’t feel like it (in fact, the same time it took our coach from Warrington to London). All accomplished on my own and with no stress because I had set my expectations quite low beforehand.

My wheelchair and my prototype tray/coffee holder were absolutely fabulous and it is going to see a lot more action from now on. I have a spot on the back crossbar where I can store it together with my umbrella. I LOVE a successful project. 😁

A successful train journey into London Charring Cross where I was met with a wheelchair ramp – excellent so far 😁

A few pictures along the way.

After trying to book an Uber four times without success, I decided to hop on the next northerly bound bus outside the station. This would get me closer to Colindale and hopefully more chance of an Uber as it is a much quicker journey.

The difference is of course that from CharringX to Golders Green is about a 1.5 hour trip not counting in home-time traffic 😱.

I will definitely be late for dinner

Second stage of my trip to the capital is taking a train from New Eltham in SE London to Charring Cross on the train and then I will probably get an Uber to Colindale to save time and energy.

I have NO idea how easy it is to get on a SE train???

Report to follow.

A bit of crochet on the siding whilst I wait for my carriage.

Not at my destination of Sidcup yet, but having a quick break at TomTom Coffee house on the corner of zenith and Elizabeth streets near Victoria bus station.

The tea shop across from me is incredible….

Now to enjoy my coffee and order an Uber.

A stop in Dudley street to pick up passengers and change coach drivers and we are off again. Started another Virus shawl because I know the pattern out of my head and it travels very easily when it is made in just 3ply – a perfect travel project.

Next stop is Finchley Road in London.

And so the adventure begins…..

Five days away from home on my own. Taking a coach from Warrington to London Victoria and from there I have to get to Sidcup somehow – maybe a train, a bus or an Uber.

First coach trip and they have managed to stow my wheelchair without any problems – a good start 😄👍 Front row seats mean I can’t miss any of the trip and the knitting and crochet will keep me entertained.
