Just a quick note for those I can't reach and those who read the blog. Citizen Sane and I are both OK.
More than nine times out of 10, I take the Piccadilly Line to work via Kings Cross. Today, I got to the platform and the next Piccadilly Line train was three minutes away, so (being impatient and angry as it was the morning) I took the Victoria line - something I had NEVER done. EVER. NOT ONCE.
So I should have been on that train this morning.
I was, however, on the tube at Kings Cross this morning when the incident happened there, albeit on the other line. The train driver lied to us about why we couldn't stop, locked us on the train, to keep us calm and sped us through the City, where I found out (only later) that other bombs were going on above my head. Absolute nightmare.
What was great was that myself and all of my friends called and mailed around and it didn't take long to work out that no-one was hurt. I'm in shock at the moment, but I'm sure future blogs from Citizen Sane and myself will make sense of it all. That's what we're here for, after all.
