I've just had notification that I am having keyhole surgery on my knee on the Tuesday 24th so I have no idea how I will be feeling.

I'll try to be there but who knows.

Bum, bum, bum and ten bums in a row!

My friend who was supposed to cat/house-sit for me may no longer be able to :( won't know for certain for another week, but it doesn't look hopeful, which means I can only come down for the day, so my question is would it be better to come on the Friday or the Saturday?

I've been looking at train and bus times and the Waterloo to Templecombe and then the 58 bus from Templecombe to Wincanton seems to be the best option, but open to any suggestions . . .

The Saturday is going to be better than the Friday

Is there no one else who could catsit for a night ?

Another option might be Berry's Coaches who go from Hammersmith straight to Wincanton

Berry's only do two trips from Hammersmith daily as far as I'm aware both pm. http://book.booksuperfast.com/superfast_timetable2.html
As they're what I get to travel down.

Thank you all for your suggestions :thumbl:

Sadly the cat's do need a sitter, as one of them is getting on a bit and has dodgy bladder control, so she tends to piddle in random places unless she is monitored closely - which is impossible to do 100% of the time, which means moping up duties are regularly required . . . take it from me, fermented cat pee is not a pleasant odour - you need to get that stuff cleared up sharpish! :mrgreen:

So, a day trip on Saturday it is!

I looked into Berry's but their timetable doesn't work with a day trip, sadly, but thankfully the train is quicker and goes in/out of Templecombe once an hour :D

Phaze - thank you for your very kind offer of a lift! Much appreciated :thumbl:
The train gets into Templecombe at 12.25 and the 58 bus to Wincanton is due at 12.45 and gets to Wincanton Memorial Hall* for 1pm, so I think I'll be alright to get to Wincanton, but I'd really appreciate a lift back to the station if possible?

*I've never been to Wincanton before, so I'm hoping the Memorial Hall is close to the Emporium and at least one pub?! :wink:
