    Fine last year we got diverted via Derby. Definitely not a short cut so it took about 30 minutes longer. My train is from Birmingham and I would be quite happy to wait 20 minutes or so but an hour is a bit too long

    That'll be fine, then!! I'm sorry Carol is not wearing her tiara, as I took mine out of the bank specially!

  16. Laughed when I saw this about Carol's tiara. Do you know, I passed an antique type shop in Bridgnorth a couple of weekends ago (where we go for the Severn Valley Railway) and right in front of the display was a Tiara!! No price ticket on it and the shop was shut, being about 7.30 p.m. It immediately though made me think of Carol and I had a little smile to myself at all the silliness we indulge in with thee daft things........(acknowledging of course Carol that your tiara is probably worth thousands....... buttons that is!)

    I am glad I decided not to bring my tiara now Rachel is bringing hers. whilst mine is special being given to my by Jane herself (quick curtsey), it would look a little tawdry against a tiara that required depositing in a bank!

  19. No,no Carol, you've got the wrong idea about Rachel's tiara - she only puts it in the bank so no-one can see it, 'cos it's paste. It only comes out on the occasions when everyone has had a glass or two of the collapsing stuff because by then their eyesight has gone a bit iffy and they can't see the difference of paste from real...... You've gotta hand it to her, she thinks these things through......

    There is a bit of a rumour that, like the rara skirt, the tiara does not actually exist. SHOCK, HORROR
