Today I decided that my life would be incomplete without a ruffler foot for my sewing machine.
The first place I rang said "Yes, I am sure we have some in stock." Hooray!
So I checked out the transport website, worked out a plan, and choofed on out. It should take me 43 minutes to get there...
If someone can tell me why I then immediately for on the wrong bus and went to the wrong station, I'd be grateful.... Lol
40 minutes after I left, I was wandering around the right station, trying to find the right platform. I found a map that told me what trainline to catch, I found a map that told me where the platforms were, I just couldn't find something that told me which train left from which platform. And I couldn't find anyone to ask without leaving the station, which would invalidate my ticket.
Ten minutes later, I spied a sign with a dark blue line on it. Hooray! It was the line I wanted. So I followed the line.
It led me down a manky green, claustrophobia inducing tunnel. They had tried to make the tunnel nice by stencilling vines and leaves on it but even that didn't work. I walked down down down the tunnel and through a door.
To my left were gates to leave the station and in front of me were stairs. By now, I was wondering if I had wandered into some sort of video game, whether I'd meet a wandering monster, what I could whack it with (my sock knitting needles?) and whether I'd find a treasure.
I walked down the stairs, then down another flight and another. I was standing on a wide landing with two steel doors in front of me. Apart from the lime green walls, I rather did think I was in a dungeon. But the doors were very clearly saying Do Not Enter. And there were more stairs to go down.
Hooray, my prize! A train platform! The right platform!
It was only then that I discovered only every second train stored at the station I wanted to go to. And Kogarah is said cog-ra.
After my 43 minute trip took most of 90 minutes, I was only in the shop for five minutes. And my prize cost a whole ten bucks! Hope it works...
