Wiblog - Paul's Wibblings

23/02/21

25 years ago today is the date Beth and I have deemed that we started going out. I say that as it's complicated.

Caledonian Sleeper, who run the sleeper services from Scotland to London and back, really are in a mess. A while ago now they ordered new rolling stock, to replace their 30+ year old ex-BR carriages, from a Spanish company called CAF.

As I mentioned before the doctor at our surgery who let me have a supply of somatriptan injectors was also keen to explore prophylaxis. Again.  read more ...
