We travelled by train and I was as good as gold. Yes really.
Readers should know that the Friday 9:52 a.m. East Coast train from Aberdeen is, unofficially, the Stag and Hen Party Express.
So many jolly, lively and not at all drunk folk on board to keep Gail and I entertained as we sped south.
Newcastle was the main destination for these party people. For some reason* Gail was holding me very tight as we watched them disembarking...
....and she breathed a big sigh of relief as the train pulled out of the station.
