Kings Cross United drinks evening

Last night, Kings Cross United ( the people who have got in contact with me who were on the same train) met up for drinks in an Islington pub. 8 survivors and 2 partners/friends

It was a great night. Much drink was taken, everybody talked like mad, hugs and stories were swapped, and it was a huge relief to meet other people who had the same experiences and the same symptoms since ( dodgy hearing, shakey, tired, nervous, angry, not at all keen on tube travel etc).

A relief for me to have everyone there and drawing strength from each other. We will go out for another drink in the future and keep tabs on how we are getting on.

And today two more 21/7 suspected bombers were arrested. The Oval bomber and the 26 Hackney bus bomber. I have been watching the news all day with a hangover.

And now it seems that the last one, the Shepherd's Bush one has just been picked up in Rome.

Really glad to hear that you had a good night. From your blog you've been so brave through all this maddness I imagine some relaxation was more than deserved.

I hope you are doing well and again really thanks for your posts. Sometimes when I feel scared about going on the tube I just think of your writing and it helps so much.

Hope you are well

It is so important to connect and meeting up with other people was probably a really healing experience.
