Poor Myrtle. Panic in Paris…

My darling mother is in Paris visiting one of her sisters. She thought she’d missed her London train returning back from Paris just now (she hadn’t). She panicked. And got a little cross with the Eurostar Assist team for not getting her onboard on time.  Then I pointed out to her the times on the train ticket were actually local times and she was actually an hour early! Bless her. She apologised to everyone who would listen at Gard du Nord. Twice. 

She’s now safely on board. I’ll meet her at St Pancras and get her on her Welwyn train. 

Still, good to be doing the trip alone aged 86. Many wouldn’t. πŸ‘
