Greetings from the train, just approaching Darlington. I’m on my way back from GGF in Nottingham, and am enjoying the wireless internet that National Express trains have as standard.
What they don’t have as standard, however, is power sockets, so I will shortly have to switch off my dying laptop and find something else to do, like look out of the window at the miserable, flat, grim landscape of the north-east of England.
And what’s worse, the train’s running late due to engineering works, and there’s very little leg room where I am sitting.
However, all is not lost – Team North won the football yesterday, levelling the series at 2-2. We won 4-1 on the day against Team South, braving some horrendous weather conditions. I played little better than mediocre, and am exhausted and battered at the end of it all. But I am of course delighted that we won.
I get home much later tonight, and thankfully have tomorrow off, meaning I can nurse my numerous football-related bumps, bruises and aches, and get some much-needed sleep.
Oh, and talking of epic pain-filled victories against the forces of evil, Happy Easter everyone.
