One of our 'not so good' days out!! ;-)



Off on a day trip to Bath : a leisurely train ride, first class, of course;

a non stopper, no less!

Or so I thought...until we arrived at Newton Abbot Railway Station

to find that our train was... cancelled. Or rather...it just didn't exist!

Great!


The day just went dismally downhill from that very moment. ;-)

I mean, if you book something then you expect to receive exactly what you've booked...

DON'T YOU?!

But oh no...read the small print and somehow companies like First Great Western

will try to cover themselves.

Never mind that they have my email address and could have informed

me that the train would not run.

RUBBISH!!

Moan number one!

;-)


We got there in the end but the journey was rubbish and whoever it was on the staff

of FGW who said that a ton of rugby supporters (whose train had broken down), could hijack

the first class carriage, making it even more unbearable because..well..

I am as charitable as the next person but...

 PEOPLE NEVER HAVE ANY REGARD FOR ANOTHER PERSONS

 PEACE AND QUIET DO THEY?


Thanks for that!

Moan number 2!

(Am I getting old or what?)






Bath Christmas Market...never again!

I couldn't move and I couldn't see anything... much!!

Just the tops of a few chalets!!;-)

There were a handful of stewards trying to shepherd people

in an orderly fashion...some hope! ;-)


Moan number 3! ;-)






Hmm, before you are wondering what 'moan number 4' might be,

 there were some high points during the day!

Just the one or two!





People were doing their best to enter into the spirit of Christmas

and add their touch to the mood in the city.





And I met a lovely person called Emma...'Emma's Soap'





But I have to say that the best bit was leaving Bath... and arriving home!

Once more, our train was cancelled! 

The journey home was a nightmare

and when we finally reached Newton Abbot,

I said to myself...'NEVER AGAIN!'

(Until next time!!)

LOL!!




Finally...

On Saturday, I will be taking part in the fabulous

Christmas Vintage Bazaar.

This takes place at The Cheese and Grain, Frome.

It's a wonderful fair and must not be missed!!

So..see you there, hopefully!

And after that we are off to Wells!!

Now then...none of this involves a First Great Western Train 

and hopefully, I will return to my blog next week

with a much bigger smile on my face!! LOL!
