Yesterday I came home across London, which I always enjoy.
I hadn't really been paying attention to the Tube strike as it's beyond the radar of BS5, but of course yesterday it was bang on for my route home.
As it happened the chap who checked my ticket at Sandy (home of the good fast-train vid') suggested I alight at Finnsbury Park and take the Victoria line to Oxford Circus where I could hop on the Bakerloo and head for Paddington. I took his advice and as far as my journey went, there might as well have been no strike at all. A 3pm train from Paddington which was very empty indeed unlike the usual cattle train I catch a couple of hours after. All in all it was not bad.
Today I am on the train to Exeter St David's to meet a new Deputy Mgr in one of my Stores and to see how he is getting on in his first week. I woke at 5 and I am ready for energetic work. And then it's the weekend!
Oh - on another point, happy birthday to my friend and Vicar Debbie...
