London calling

Thursday, July 7th, 2011 | london, Uncategorized | 1 Comment

So it’s day four of my commute and I’m already starting to find my pattern.  I was warned that I’d find myself waiting at specific points on the platform where the doors will open, that I’d be almost able to get to London in my sleep.  Although I’m definitely not at the sleeping stage yet, it’s been interesting to see how quickly I’ve picked up little habits already.  Yes, I have started waiting on platforms in the right spot, and I have got my commuter stride going, which I suspect is doing wonders for my thighs.

I am definitely loving getting three hours a day of solid reading in; my Kindle and I are becoming best friends.  This weeks list includes Caitlin Moran’s “How To Be A Woman” which has me giggling inappropriately and China Mieville’s “The City & The City”.  I’ve not yet had to stand for any part of the journey and I’ve only been delayed once and by five minutes.  I suspect that this golden period can’t last too long however, and I’m always conscious of the inevitable “leaves on the line”.

Of course, this laissez-faire attitude my well somewhat strengthened by the fact that it is a very exciting week.  But I’m not going to tell you about Lanyrd today, you’ll just have to catch up with our Friday week notes!
