How not to start the week...
Today has not started out in the best way possible.

I was aiming to get into work at 9:00 today... so the alarm went off at 7. I wasn't quite ready to get out of bed then, but finally managed to raise my arse up at about 7:30. I managed to make up a bit of time getting ready (if pushed I can get ready in about 15 minutes) so I left the house just a little after 8. How can it be that it's taken me this long to get into work?

I got to the station about quarter past 8. I looked for my pass in my pocket - only then realising it's not in these trousers... it's in the trousers hanging up in my bedroom.


I walk back to my house (another 15 minutes) and pick up my pass then walk back to the station (another 15 minutes). I'm now over half an hour behind schedule.

It doesn't help that the central line was being a bitch - so I ended up taking the Hammersmith and City... which adds at least another 10 minutes to the journey.

To top it all off - there were no damn Metros to be found this morning.

In other news - My father-in-law arrived yesterday. Hopefully he won't be too jetlagged today to enjoy the first part of his wirling tour of the tourist centers of London.

Current Mood: gawd darn pissed off

I thought I heard you come back in, but I heard you in my dream.

Maybe I'll buy you a beer after work if we're still uptown? And I'll look for a Metro when I go out. The day's gotta get better now, sweetheart. :-*
