I was working at Barclays in the machine room and one of the girls got a phone call from her husband telling her that one of the twin towers had been hit by a plane. Spent the last 3 hours of the afternoon in the rest room watching the news in complete and utter disbelief. For the first time I felt that the world was changing before my eyes.
After work I met my gf for a quick drink, then got the 142 to Brent Cross to watch Hendon play a Bedford Town side that had lost their first 7 games of the season. Watched the news in the bar before going out and watching us lose 2-1. Chris Sparks was sent off for dissent for us towards the end. Twat.
Spent most of the night then watching the news. It was utterly compelling viewing.
