At Walsall station I’m so often asked if this is the train to Birmingham. I can always say with great confidence it is. All trains from Walsall go to Birmingham one way or another!
Even the ones that go to Rugley, as they turn around and then go to Birmingham. No one asks if it goes to Wolvo, and they do, or even Liverpool and they do, but they always go to Birmingham first.
I sit back and open that book.
I ponder where in the world this book is going. She is in bed, and everyone is coming to see her, but why?
Later that night I have rigged up some solar lights in the living room.
Yeah I know,
so awesomely neat!
