Favourite Coincidences

There’s a video to go with this that I’ll add in later when I’ve uploaded it, but here’s the story:

On Thursday, heading up to Unconvention in Manchester, I had a bit of a nightmare journey. I got to Euston OK, only to find that all trains out of there heading north were cancelled thanks to a derailed train.

We were all told to go to St Pancras for northbound trains, and change at Nottingham for Manchester.

I got there, got on the nearly-full train, and said to a bloke sat next to an empty seat ‘can I sit there?’

‘you’re a bass player, aren’t you?‘ he said, followed by, ‘I was on your website yesterday, I was going to email you about getting some lessons’.

What are, as the expression goes, the chances of that? He now has some lessons booked in, not surprisingly, and we had a most enjoyable hour chatting on the train.

So go on, what are your favourite serendipitous coincidences? (I’ll add the video of this encounter later – as soon as it happened, I grabbed my camera and filmed it ;) )
