Travelling man for a day

It's been quite a day! Out the house just after 9.15 this morning to pick up a grandson at Bristol TM station. Drove to place where I could park the car and get there quite early for bus to take me to Salisbury (16 miles) and then get train Bristol TM. It was all nicely timed for a leisurely snack before returning.! The transport god did not agree.
The previous bus to what I wanted passed by as I sat in my car. I walked to the stop for the one wanted. Stood and stood,them heard there was an accident on the A31. In end I had to drive nearly all the way, and catch the local P&R on Salisbury outskirts int to town for another bus to station.
Of course I miss my train, and get to Bristol an hour late, so it's a quick dash to the facilities while my daughter buys some take away and drink, and back within 15 minutes to the return train, two more buses, pick up car. Back home ten past four!!
