Yesterday, the fire service and the pub. Part 2.
After the police left ( and some chaplains who came along for some reason - perhaps they thought we needed praying for) we decided that we needed a drink. So I went with 5 other women from KCU to a pub. On the way there we passed Euston fire service building, where members of Blue Watch work. Blue Watch were the team that went into the train on July 7th to get the dead and injured on carriage one.
We decided that we would like to tell Blue Watch that we are meeting for our KCU drinks on Saturday. So we rang their bell, and they very sweetly invited us in and offered us tea. We explained who we were, and they were a bit shy and looked at their feet and said 'it felt funny being thanked' but smiled and said they hoped they could come. And that we should tell Blue Watch Soho as well. (So I just nipped down and left an invite for them too. )
Then I and the 5 KCU ladies went to the pub and had a catch up. Everyone is just about coping but most people still not sleeping, and all of us hate still travelling on trains. Especially on the 7th.
Which is today. I got a cab in. Five month anniversary. It's not really getting any better. I wonder when it will all go away?
