I've just got back from a trip south by train and the longest legs were done on down and up (or up and down if you're a train nerd) the east coast main line.

So today a repeat of my favourite train journey: up the east coast main line to Edinburgh. And as extra icing on the cake as we pottered along from Ely to Peterborough the Welney Washes were awash and glittering in the sun. Magnificent! ...  read more ...

I worry about words and how people use them and over the last few days I seem to be seeing examples of wording which have made me think "as opposed to the other sort?".  read more ...

I've already mentioned to a few people that I've been mulling over for a while now what to do in 2010 as it's when I hit 50. ...  read more ...
