Wow. We we're drving back from Cumberland..I can't even remember why we were down there. But we came back, and we're at Gelnalta Train Station, waiting to cross...And then I see bitumen ripped up around the tracks. And CFS tape. My eyes follow this messt trail, until they come to rest on the cause.
The night before, a train had de-railed. Right at the station. The Belair Train line. That train line is part of my life, I use it at least once a week. I have friends who use it every single day. So I'm sitting in the car thinking "Oh my GOD! All these people that i know catch that train, what if they were on it when this happened?" I was panicking. There were still CFS and police loitering around, and the train was still sitting there. There were cranes and trucks and everything around the site, too.
Then someone points out that it was a freight train. I let out an audible sigh of relief, and was then lost for words.
Recently, one of the most modern trains in Australia derailed, luckily no-one was killed, but it was full of passengers. One of those trans-country trains. It was all over the news, but it never really hit me. Then something liek this ahppens, so literally close to home, and it hit me hard. I mean, WOW. I just...You won't know how I feel unless it happens to you, and no-one even died.
I got home and promptly began searching the net for pictures. No pictures up yet, but what do I find? I come across many sites with stories about the same thing happening two years ago, around this time of year.
Go here for the story about the most recent happening.
Lost. For. Words.
Knit wise, I've done the decreases for the armhole...Maybe ten more cms to go and then I have to seam and weave ends!! I hope to all the gods that it fits over my humungoid head!
Illness update: Head: Blocked ears (am constantly losing my balance and nearly falling over), blocked nose and pained throat (can't really breathe using either), gungy eyes. Body: Neck must have been broken during my restless last night. Legs feel puffy.
So, yes, I'ma very joyous girl today!!
Am actually missing schoool and my friends..This was to be my last week, and I kind of wanted to take advantage of it, because I'll doubtfull be put into the same care group again next year. I wanted to do something about Adam. I wanted to talk to Axel. Wanted to help organize this Paintballing Expedition.
Will probably hopefully be at school tomorrow. Adam was tlaking about this on Friday, saying he didn't want it to be Friday for the first time since he could remember. He actually wanted to come back to school the next day to be with his friends and have fun. What is wrong with us?
