On the way back we just managed to get to the station for the 17.00 train but there was no way we could get on. For an hour we tried and failed to squeeze on every train heading to Richmond ( a more frequent service) - Maggie managed to get onto one but had to be extracted when Ian and I failed. In the end we gave up, went for a nice roast at a local restaurant ( Knights of St John) and warmed up and fortified after a glass of wine, came back at 20.00 and caught a practically empty train. Good plan!
After such a big adventure we've been pottering around at home, taking it easy , with a tranquil visit to Kew on Monday
