Reflections on a job well done - In the name of Thiago - Day 287
I spent the whole day in a state of suspended disbelief, or at least on reflection that's what I think I was going through. It started with seeing my friends from Eastbourne, Aussie Dan and Jamie Hickey at the Ten Green Bottles in Stone before we'd even set off. My brother's girlfriend had kept that from me and Angelica, having given them a lift up from the south coast on Thursday night. I stood gormlessly looking at them through the window for what seemed an age, just not quite able to compute the information that my eyes were presenting. The day continued on in a similar theme.
It was about at this point that I started to see a few people ahead of me. That's odd I thought, I wonder why they are all standing over to one side like that - not in an obvious place at all with the children's hospital entrance a good 300-400 yards away still.
