That Was A Waste Of Time That Was!

I’m now back home, as I failed to get a lift to Doncaster, in time to get there for the match. So my ticket and the one I bought for a possible driver have gone to waste. The money is irrevalent, but i don’t like to throw tickets in the bin, when someone less well off trhan myself, might have used them.

I probably didn’t leave myself enough time to get to the A1 at Apex Corner. As Doncaster, is one of these towns, where I’ve never had a gluten-free meal in the centre and the ground is some way away from the centre, I went to the only open Carluccuio’s near me at St. Pancras to get a meal, before taking a Tube and a 113 bus out of London.

The Tube and bus was my downfall, as it took about half-an-hour longer than I thought it would.

So when the clock went past 12:30, my cut-off time for getting to the match, I reversed my route and came home.

As luck would have it, I got home a lot quicker, than it had taken me to go.

In a way the missing of this match might be a blessing.  The two other impossible ones; Yeovil and Leeds, can now be missed, without them breaking a perfect record.

Unless of course today’s match should be abandoned!
