It's the thought that counts!
The hs1 train service was working again today so back to Stratford I went. On arrival I was greated by a member of staff handing out Costa coffee gift card for £3 as immediate compensation for yesterday's fun (I've filled out the delay repay form as well!). That's as exciting as today got really. I make a point of avoiding Costa but might have to venture inside now! That's assuming the robot let's me have it back of course.
