Are you sure there weren't any crossed lines and she thought you only wanted to come for a night? If not, then I'd cancel and say it's a bit expensive now you've seen how much the train fare will be.

Just say it's a lot of upheaval and expense for only one night - you were hoping to spend more time with her, how about two nights?

What discobeaver said...

I think you have to be blunt. She may not have realised how expensive the train would be.

I know when we have friends who visit from abroad, we are very conscious of the fact that they have lots of people to fit in during the short time they have in and don't want to be greedy with their time.

Don't go then.

Just say, surely? confused

I suppose the issue is that I would really like to go, as I don't often see old friends in the UK, but I feel she is asking something a bit unreasonable of me in order for me to do that. I am going to go with discobeaver's suggestion. I was just surprised that she apparently assumed the money meant nothing to me.

Morticia - I hadn't thought that she might be trying to not take up too much time - thanks.
