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 ;-)

Birmingham Residents Only...

Apologies to the rest of you.

If you're interested in Tactical Voting next week, then consider looking at this link which is the results of the last Local Elections.

I think any ideas of voting Lib-Dem or Green have just been exchanged for a rather futile attempt to get rid of my Tory councillor.

I'm sure other council's have the same information, but birmingham.gov is a fine site :-P
