There was still some whisky in your hip flask if I remember correctly!

Yeah, I think that's why we went there. We had to wait a long time at the station. I thought we were at Kings Cross, but it turned out we were at Paddington. We spent the intervening time opening boxes of leaflets from the information desk and filling Ian's bag with them. And chain smoking. And talking to a woman with a 'cello. And no one stopped us.

So did it matter that you ended up in Reading for the night rather than in Cambridge or somewhere to the north of King's X?

Well I was expecting to end up at home (in London - kind of near where I'd started).

It even seemed funny in the morning when he opened his bag and lots of leaflets came out. Unfortunately they weren't senior railcard applications or anything silly, they were London connections maps which was a bit of a let down.
