The Anonymous Widower

A Slow Bus from Cambridge to Ipswich

After the film, I did a bit of window shopping in Cambridge and then had lunch in Carluccio’s before catching the four o’clock bus to Haverhill, where I was going to get the coach at six o’clock to Ipswich for the football.

The weather was atrocious and it was almost pleasant to be at the front on the top of a warm 13  bus, as it meandered its way through the villages to Haverhill. At least, I had a little shelf in front of me, which allowed me to do the Sudoku.

Haverhill though is not the place to spend an hour at five ‘oclock on a very wet Tuesday afternoon.  There was no cafe open and the one or two pubs that were looked very much like the places I would only visit in direst need.  The rain looked friendlier! I walked up to  Tesco’s as I needed a banana and a juice with which to take my Warfarin. They did have single bananas, but I couldn’t find any small drinks of juice or smoothies.  As everything was in litre bottles or larger, I decided that it would be better to try elsewhere.  I got what I wanted in the Co-op.  But they didn’t have a gluten-free section, so my thought of buying a packet of suitable biscuits went out the window. Tesco’s did have a gluten-free section, but it was rather poor, with no nice biscuits. I did ask in the Co-op about gluten-free and they said it had been successful, so they stopped it.

So supper consisted of some sandwiches, I’d made before I left, some chocolate, a smoothie, a banana and a 5mg. Warfarin tablet.

The coach from Haverhill to Ipswich was probably the fastest part of the journey as the weather seemed to have kept the crowd very much below what I would have expected.
