Monday Miscellany

Happy Monday!I’m counting down the days until I have a whole week off, but I have a ton of things to do at work before that.

The schools have broken up for the summer, which should mean that the commute is a bit easier but actually means that the trains are going to be full of adults and children who don’t understand how the tube works. I know, it’s a London problem, however, if you are not from London and coming to visit can I please direct you to my previous post on the do’s and don’t’s of being a tourist.

We still haven’t had any significant rain, I felt sure that the schools breaking up would shake some raindrops loose but it’s going to be in the 30’s this week, so daily watering is back and no cooking. I roasted a chicken, so that will form the basis of all my meals this week!

My week is shaping up to be busy, aside from the watering, I’m seeing Max and Chrissy on Tuesday, going to Southampton on Wednesday and having a haircut on Friday. It really is all go here!

    I went to London once to meet a friend visiting from Germany and she had to show me how to use the tube – never have I felt more like a tourist and a country bumpkin!

      It’s difficult for me to imagine not knowing how the tube works but most of the rules are common sense so you’ll probably be fine! When I was in DC I was complimented on how well I navigated the metro but it’s easy because it was much less complex than London’s. If you come again I’d be happy to give you lessons!

        Thank you, that’s very kind. 🙂 I must confess that the tube terrified me – it’s the stopping in the middle of a dark tunnel on a very hot day that finished me off. I had to get off at the next stop and walk!

        I once had to be guided off a train that was stuck in a tunnel, which was fairly terrible! Other than that I honestly don’t think about it but right now I’m trying to avoid any lines that don’t have aircon!
