    I had to go to London for a lecture, so that meant an overnight train, barely any sleep, and lots of coffee in the morning.
    So, Breakfast and brunch: a dozen lattes
    Lunch: Scampi and chips, and mushy peas (so bad!)
    Dinner: a quick Maccas before the train back to South West - fries, cheeseburger, coke zero (so much worse!)
    FBG: strangely a fine 6.6!
