"Mum's asking for you" said Bay
"I'll be in Inverness tomorrow afternoon."
Left the house at 6.15 Friday morning with Oscar for company and caught the 16 bus into town - fare £1.90. It arrived within seconds of our arrival at the Hamstead Road stop. Empty dark streets, wet leaves and a bag bumping over paving stones. I bought my rail tickets on-line a short time after getting home to Handsworth via train and coach from London Gatwick. Punched in my codes at a ticket machine on the New Street Concourse. Birmingham to Inverness via Glasgow booked as separate journeys and with Senior Rail Card brings the cost down to £66. I should be in Inverness just after 3.00pm.
The evening before - Wednesday evening - Lin and I walked up to the church of the Prophet Elias and watched the dusk settling on the village; the house tidied, all packed and ready to leave for England in the morning
