BSL Glossary - Crowded Cottage

Start, started, starting - example

I got up in the morning with plenty of time to spare before my 11 o'clock meeting. I had something to eat, washed and changed and set off. I strolled along until I eventually arrived at the venue. When I went in, I was surprised to find that the place was deserted. I went up to one of the rooms and was amazed to see that it was packed with people. I went and sat down and asked someone beside me about the time of the meeting. It seems that the meeting was not supposed to start at 11 but at 10 o'clock. I felt really stupid.
