Currently sitting across the aisle from me round a 4 seater in a classic Virgin Pendolino dragging me from Glasgow to Crewe, are a wee Scouse family of three - a young dad, a girl of about 3 and a boy of about 5. And I actually love them.
- •The dad is excellent. He's fun, firm and loving - he responds to them consistently and constantly. He has an incredibly thick Scouse accent and the kids copy his sayings occasionally.
- •The children are super confident, and asked me very politely where I was going. They then proudly announced they were from Liverpool.
- •They are alternating shots on a Nintendo DS playing a game which routinely announces "this is the 2012 olympics!" in an inappropriately American accent.
