My wife needs the car to get to work as she works in the middle of an industrial estate.. sorry “International Business Park”… so she drops me off and picks me up from the station every day.
Her hours are fixed, she works 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
That means, to save her going home and then coming back out to get me, I get the 5:10 p.m. train home, and I’m waiting at the station for her at around 5:45 p.m.
It also means that I usually leave the office at 5 p.m. sharp.
The train in the morning is either at 8 a.m. or 8:30 a.m. The 8:30 a.m. train would mean I wouldn’t make it into the office until 9 a.m. so I get the 8 a.m. train instead, getting me into the office at 8:30 a.m. and in time to see the fox appear this morning.
Hope that’s cleared everything up for you.
(Side thought: whatever happened to the local cat we used to see?)
