Exciting day yesterday with the launch of 1230 TWC Bexley at Ferrari’s Restaurant. A fabulous venue, with free parking, delicious food and attentive, but not too much, staff. Great speaker Marina Gask, Host Deborah Jones and other vibrant inspiring businesswomen. I thought I’d try out the train route to the venue. Quite easy, Eden Park Station, change at Lewisham for Bexley, 2 mins walk to restaurant. The train was just coming into the station as I reached the platform, without hesitation, in I hopped. Station announcements were going to plan until “London Bridge” was announced as the next and last station!
Hmmmm. OK, not to worry, I could get a train from LB to Bexley, no problem. Which is what I did. The trains were running late and I had to change platforms, but I met and chatted to a delightful lady who was travelling home to Bexley having stayed at her sister’s in Bedford. From the 1230 TWC Bexley meeting I had planned to go by train to Bromley North for another meeting, this time 2 train changes. My travelling companion suggested getting one bus from Bexley to Bromley North – great idea! 1230 TWC Host Debbie kindly drove me to the bus stop, the required number bus pulled in behind us just as the car stopped. Out I leapt and jumped on the bus, without hesitation. Yes, you’ve guessed it –

Yes, you’ve guessed it – wrong direction! But…. a very sweet Bromley College student guided me to the bus stop to take me to the correct destination for my meeting. So, I hesitated twice, was “lost” twice, but met 2 lovely people as a result. Would you say those journeys were failures or successes?
