It's amazing to find out that there is a different way to travel - other than on foot, by car or when carried by She Who Mustn't Be Obeyed.
Today, we did all of the above AND tried a new method, called "the train".
What happened was that SWMBO had driven to a party in Lisvane last night and left the car there because of having had too much to drink. Her plan today was to walk with us to the station, take us on the train and walk from Lisvane station to the house, then drive us back home.
We'd been to the station before, but only to help SWMBO to pick up her rail tickets, so we never really knew what it meant.
We didn't really know what to make of the train at first. Neither Spike nor I were keen - there was a bit of a gap between the platform and the train, which was rather off-putting. It took a bit of persuasion for us to get up there - in fact I just refused, and dugs my claws in in protest. So SWMBO had to pick me up and plonk me on the train! The indignity of it!
Anyway, it was ok. People were nice and said we were cute - it didn't feel that different from travelling by car though it made a different noise and was a bit more jolty.
Getting off was better than getting on. The gap wasn't so big so I jumped down quite happily. I wasn't going to be humiliated a second time, I can tell you!
