Firstly, on the day, good news. We found a local vicar and their family who was willing to take her in for the evening, and take her to the Council the following day. She got there ok (i was with her), and was very happy to have a bed for the night.
Secondly, I have had no update since then. Partly as she had no contact details (no phone, etc.), partly as i can’t just ask a Council if they have seen XYZ person, and partly as there has been no other update. I will share it once i get it.
The strangest thing happened to me on the way home tonight. It’s something I’m still digesting, as it was something that will no doubt stick with me forever. So bear with me as i think its important to share 1/n
I was waiting for a connecting train at Bletchley station. When i noticed a small, old lady with bags, visibly shaking and nervous on the platform.
Usually, i would brush this off. She has a family member who has just popped off somewhere, she doesn’t want to be disturbed, that sort of thing. But something tonight made me think otherwise. So i simply asked ‘Are you alright?’
