i hereby swear that i am never ever going to use a train unless i absolutely have to!
i went shopping in nottingham yesterday, and sometime between the time i arrived there and the time i wanted to leave, some gits vandalised the midland mainline at some point so emergency engineering works had to be undertaken. that meant no trains to anywhere back the way i wanted to go!
so there i was, faced with the choice to either spend extra money & go home (green, green lincolnshire), or to somehow find a very clever way of getting back here…
in the end, i had to wait for a bus to loughborough & stay with good friend dan 'the hat man'...
then today, i fully expected the trains to be running again. very very naive and stupid of me. i managed to get a train as far as leicester before i had to wait around for ages for a bus to nuneaton, then bus to coventry, then bus to campus…
and here i am. just alive enough to tell the tale..
so basically, the moral of this harrowing tale is not to use trains.
