Train Musings

Currently en route to Trowbridge to see my dear friend Kat. I haven't made this journey for over a year and I'm pretty nervous about travelling. I'm sat on the train now, the first of 3 and I'm doing okay. Im being typically British about my train travel. You know, staring people out who stare at me getting on with my luggage, screwing my nose up secretly at my neighbours gross sandwich, pretending no one actually exists, complaining to myself about the crap seat then not moving to the nice one by the window (I love being British!)

I was well chuffed to find a train ticket to my destination for under £70 but now I know why..I'm on the smallest, stuffiest, crowded little thing for 2 hours. My coccyx hurts already and the tuna man is still chomping his least I brought blueberry muffins and cookies for my fellow travellers nose (nose only, no one shares my food) (seriously) I'm hopeful my journey will improve, maybe someone will pass me a paper? Or stop eating disgusting lunch? Maybe...

Anyway, about my trip. It's a rather spontaneous one as they usually are with me, it was only planned a couple of weeks ago because of a certain birthday which I need to make special because well, everyone deserves a decent birthday don't they? And to not be on their tod. I have banners, candles, ready to go cake mix, white tack and gifts I am so ready for a birthday I love them! I don't think we'll be getting up to much, just chilling and eating and negotiating with a 5 year old, 4 year old and a 1 year old because well, it just happens like that. My only real thing to do this weekend is have a bath and not just to relax but because up near Bath the water is BLUE! Honestly it blows my tiny mind every time I visit, can't get enough.

I don't think there's much else to say here, I've moaned about train travel but done nothing about it and I think it's time I broke out my peanut butter and jam sandwiches but I'm not sure if I'm that much of an arse!
