Short days?
One of the worst/best things of shirking from home is not having to get up early in the morning, however, as many of you know I do a day a week in London which involves me having to get up, out, on a train etc.

This morning I bounced enthusiastically into the shower, out of the house, on the bus, to New Street, to the ticket machine, to the departure boards... only to see no trains to London. Apparently as part of the "West Coast Main Line Hash Up" there are replacement buses and alternative routes. So, given the choice of a 45 minute longer journey, starting from another Birmingham station, at some undetermined point in the future I got back on the bus and came home.

Rar! Decisive action ;-)

And this is set to go on until the 20th. So therefore it will take much longer, of course. It's easier (and cheaper) to fly to the continent than to get to London - perhaps you could re-arrange your schedule to Paris?

The first rule of Goth Club isn't "Don't tell anyone else about Goth Club" - it's "Never drink with Fuzzy".

Let me know if you'd like to crash. The spare room hasn't got too much rubbish in at the moment!

Hmm, I'm bloody glad that it didn't affect Birmingham -> Oxford services or I wouldn't have been able to get to work today...

Completely different lines, and only seem to suffer from being late when I get on them.

Right, shall email you a list of jobs, in that case ;)

Start with the poor neglected back lawn, and then...

I've looked at the back lawn. At least twice now.

I might let the rats out in a bit if they're awake. And then go for a run early evening.

Make that three times.

I quite fancy a run later (post work and library -but don't let me hold you up if you have a burst of enthusiasm in the meantime)

Lovely, lush grass, just beggin' for a good cuttin'

Have you considered a goat?

It would have to be a very small goat on a diet for Arf's lawn!
ikkleblacktruck From: ikkleblacktruck Date: June 4th, 2004 10:05 am (UTC) (Link)
Miniature goat, then. :)
