First class

We spent a fantastic weekend in Cardiff with John and family. We hit the opera, saw the St David’s day parade, took a boat ride round Cardiff bay and generally got very Welsh.

01032009017On the way back we treated ourselves to some first class action. Stopping by the “dining” car for an afternoon snack I happened to spot the appetising choices on the right. Yum, just think of that rail-kill…

It wasn't all bad though, they stocked a pretty serviceable house white and once that ran out K upped our game and moved us on to champagne. We also got unlimited free water and snacks and a very nice sunset. All in all a very pleasant Champagne on the trainjourney, to the extent that we hardly noticed the 40 minute delay and didn't mind at all. Champagne will do that for you :-)

On a geek note I’m writing this with Windows Live Writer, a blogging app from Microsoft (gasp!). It’s actually rather good, the killer feature for me being that it previews my posts in the correct template so I can see the layout exactly as it will look before I upload. And it lets me put rounded borders on photos too – nice. Discovered via lifehacker.
