Well I took today off [mainly because I had too many left over and need to use them or lose them] and decided I really should get into the festive spirit and do some christmas shopping. BIG BIG mistake. Whoever thought any day of the week before christmas would be quiet! I mean what was I thinking.
I should really have just stayed in bed. What with people in Argos giving me grief because allegedly the seething mob was actually a queue. Oh and of course the rail crisis continues.
Every train I got today was delayed by a minimum of 10 minutes. The worst was trying to get back from Clapham Junction – a journey which normally takes 10-15 minutes ended up taking over an hour. Still at least there isn’t a rail crisis anymore and we are just thankful it is usual run of the mill poor service.
