Arrived at Oxford station yesterday morning and bought tickets into Paddington. Boy was that train packed to the gunnels. There were a Swedish couple travelling with their three kids, a toddler and two twin babies. It seems like having a pair of twin babes is a little like trying to play two games of tennis at once. One's okay then the other goes off, then you switch to calm that one, and then the other is triggered off, and then they both go off and then you try frantically not to drop all the balls.
Anyway, we got to St Pancras, which is now a wonderful station (in fact the whole King's Cross-St Pancras area is much transformed) and entered into the sleek Eurostar terminal. The train was superfast now on the British side, unlike in the old days when it ran from Waterloo, and we were in Brussels in two hours. A quick hop on the metro and we got to our flat. A bit of a struggle with the keys and working out which door was ours and we were in.
