Over the last couple of weeks Gyrth has been somewhat sickly. As I wouldn't want a house guest when I was feeling off I haven't foisted myself on him. This week he's much perkier so we're off to the Bright Star for a couple of beers before I go back to his house to snore loudly.
In other news: I've had a strange experience with the Virgin Trains Fares web site. I normally book my tickets 2 to 4 weeks ahead. Usually I travel from Liverpool on the 10:35 and return Thursday on the 20:18. These trains give me the opportunity to buy cheap fares, usually costing between £17 and £22 each way, that can be upgraded to First Class for £15 each. For some reason the only cheap fares available for Monday 16th February are on the 8:35 (and the upgrade isn't available). Normally there are no cheap fares on that train. Very strange. Maybe everybody's visiting Liverpool of Valentine's Night :-Þ So I'll be slumming it that day.
Half an hour to go before beer with G. Hurrah!
