Wet and windy this morning in Scotland
The wind on Friday caused havoc to trains running to Scotland, mine was 3hrs late getting into Aberdeen, would have been 4 1/2 hrs late if I'd gone onto my final destination by train.
We were packed like sardines on the train from Carlisle. There looked to be hundreds of people on the platform waiting for the next train to Scotland. When one did arrive, on the train door it said it was going to Euston, the electronic display on the platform said it was going to Glasgow and the guard said Edinburgh.
Fortunately both Scottish distinations would have got me to were I was going and if the train had gone back south I'd decided to throw in the towel and go home.
I must look nearly 27 because a little boy gave up his seat but on this occassion I wasn't going to argue and was quite happy to entertain a 3yr old for the remainder of the trip.
On a positive note had a fab time in Scotland, shame I couldn't stay for hogmany but back to work on 2nd, you guys in Scotland get an extra day off.
