I MADE two huge mistakes last week.
Huge Mistake Number One - I bought a carton of milk.
Huge Mistake Number Two - I bought a train ticket home.

That ticket happened to be for a Virgin train. Which meant my ride didn't depart for a good long while, at least three quarters of an ice-age after it was meant to, leaving me with plenty of time to twiddle my thumbs, and various other knobbly parts of my body.

No wonder I was so annoyed that I'd initially bought the milk - I should have purchased a newspaper instead.
