Trains

Ok trains are still crap. I am on the super spiffing Virgin one from Oxford to Edinburgh (all 6+ hours of it). There are no free seats and the isles and connection bits are full. The seat booking displays have gone to pot and are wrong, and to top it all there are a load of people who have been double booked for a seat.

I have been very lucky so far as I have had a seat, not the same one but I found one I could move to when in Birmingham. The one I was on was booked from there.

Only saving grace is the power socket at the seat. I have been watching a Laurel & Hardy DVD without sound, I am in the "Quite Zone" carriage.

Oh I passed my exam this morning. Hence no re-sit. Hence travelling back today.

Glad to hear you passed the exam!

Trains always seem to be a disaster when I travel on them as well. Mind you I don't think roads are much better - got stuck in a traffic queue on Friday, and it took 2hrs to do 20miles! I guess at least you get to sit down in a car, unlike trains very often
