It’s been a great and busy week , made even better at seeing all of you logging in and reading these posts. A blog which initially started off with a small number of family and friends as an audience, is now attracting readers from Lithuania (who are you? If you’re reading this from Lithuania and thinking it can’t possibly be you, it really is because I’m only seeing 1 viewer from there), Australia, Poland, Finland and many more wonderful places !
Here , have some flowers as a thank you:
What many of you non-Londoners won’t know is just how long it takes to get from place to place over here. It takes me 1 hr to get in to work by train, or 20 minutes by car (without any delays), and this is good. Many will travel between 1 to 2 hours each way, every day.
Morning meetings are therefore something I dread, because it inevitably means getting up earlier than usual to make sure that I get to work on time.
A contributing factor to my hate of morning meetings is that I am not a morning person. I don’t like mornings . Ever.
I stupidly agreed to do a morning meeting this week because they called it a Breakfast Meeting. I thought there would be food, but it turns out the word ‘Breakfast’ was just used to signify the time of day ( i.e. bloody early ).
Mornings aside , travelling to and from London is not so bad and it is so easy to get on a bus or train and be anywhere you want (within reason obviously). This past weekend I took a little trip to Birmingham, the second largest city in the UK. Here are the some of the sites to see:
Worth a visit if you’re keen on seeing another big city and it is between £12-£20 return from London if you pick your times right!
In other news, we are making our way to Florence, Italy in a couple of weeks and I cannot wait to tell you all about it.
Have a great week people far and wide 🙂
