I’m glad I got paper train tickets

I nearly opted for e-tickets when I booked the train but had a gut feeling it was a bad idea. It’s one of my last trips to Manchester for work and the last Christmas “do” I’ll be attending at this job.

I’m glad to have real paper tickets because this morning O2’s entire mobile network seems to be borked. Wouldn’t have been able to get my e-tickets at all.

I’m glad I brought a paperback to read, too. It’s This Is Going To Hurt by Adam Kay. The brilliantly written diary of an NHS junior doctor. I’ve spent the first 50 pages stifling laughter and squeamishly cringing, often at the same time.
