Finally found this on YouTube as I often describe to people the concept of the Cambridge spoiled child with the dumb parents who dote after them…  

Spotted this the other week at Cambridge station: Platform hosts ? Kind of sounds like some sort of sex trade !

I think I’ve blogged before about the fact that there is only 1 sandwich that I can eat in the whole of Cambridge Station – a basic cheese sandwich for £1 from M&S. No, it’s not the penny saving Scottish gene in me, it’s the fact that I hate sandwiches full of random stuff like […]

Bureau de Change becomes free, so Chinese guy skips the queue and goes to use it (sensible use I believe). I don’t actually notice, […]

Wednesday night, nice bottle of red wine. Seems to make everything fall into place. If only things were that simple..
