top-notch ducket hustlers

The plan for England v Wales this weekend is to meet Ben at Wimbledon Station on Sunday to get the 1:34 train to Twickenham.

After the game we will walk along to the While Hart while the crowd disperses and see who is about. Folk who haven't seen Ben since he came skiing with us when he was in primary school are in for a shock.

After that we will get the train back from Whitton to Charing Cross (it runs at 28 and 57 minutes past the hour), thence Balham where we will get the Northern Line to Colliers Wood.

I tried to buy tickets for Wimbledon AFC's Monday play off at Wembley earlier, but it is too late to get them online. Luckily they are available until Sunday  from a pop-up shop in Centre Court, so I can pick some up there on my way to Twickenham. (Northern Line to London Bridge then the Jubilee Line to Wembley Park would seem to be my best bet to get to the football.)
