The walk from the hotel to Wembley Park train station was fairly short, and I caught the Metropolitan Line to Baker Street, where I changed trains for the train to Kings Cross/St Pancras International. From there the journey was pretty straight forward, with a direct train to Leicester. My plan had been to grab some breakfast en route, but unfortunately a couple of my trains were delayed, and instead of having ample time, I didn't get chance to grab anything before boarding the train, and there was no shop or trolley service for the journey to Leicester. I was certainly glad that I had filled up my travel flask with tea from the hotel room before I left!
On arrival at the school, the lady at reception made me a lovely cup of tea, and I had to sign into the visitor's book and put on a name badge so that everyone knew I had permission to be in the school. There were quite a few people in the staff room when I arrived, and that is because they were taking it in turns to be interviewed for the job of teacher. (You see, even teachers have to be on time, dress up smartly, and even they get nervous at things like interviews, and have to deal with feeling happy or sad depending whether or not they get the job! We all get scared sometimes, and have to put ourselves through things which might be outside of our comfort zone).
At first I thought I might be a bit bored at the train station, because I had a few hours to wait between trains, but it actually worked out perfectly with the train being late, as I didn't have long to wait for my train at all.
