Well it seems a good weekend was had by all - Malek finally got the birthday he wanted where lots of people turned up to drink with him. To the best of my knowledge he is still recovering quietly amongst a pile of half-unpacked boxes and clothing. Karla is likely still gathering all her stuff before she heads of to Japan this weekend - good luck to her if she happens to be reading.
My main reason for the blog today was to give everyone I can a big hint. I don't buy lots of rail tickets from the trainline - maybe one or two every couple of months, but if you actually need to contact them and would prefer to phone them rather than an easily-ignorable e-mail then the phone number is less than easy to find. So, prepare your mobile phone for I have the number and you may need it one day. It is:
0870 010 1296
Judging by how hard it is to find this number on their website I think they don't want people to phone them (and they are based in Dingwall so they obviously don't want people to visit them in person), therefore I suggest that you all do at the first hint of a problem.
I've been waiting for a refund since May, but I'm not bitter oh no.
