The Good And The Bad Reasons


You’ll know from my constant whinging on Twitter that I’ve been commuting to London recently for work. Today is a new low, terrible weather conditions and heading in. I just tweeted that there were 5 reasons not to go in, and only 1 advocating the idea of going in. So here goes:

Bad Reasons
1) Ice and abandoned cars on M40.
2) Severe delays and a reduced service on buses according to Ox Tube.
3) Radio advising to only make journeys which are vital.
4) It took 5 hours to get home yesterday.
5) I can do almost all my work remotely.

Good Reasons
1) There is one thing I need to do work wise today which requires me being in London, however if this place remains closed (as it was yesterday) this will negate the whole concept.

Which Way Would You Go?


I get off the bus at Marble Arch and have to walk to Piccadilly Circus, Google original told me this route:

Which basically entails walking a long way down Oxford Street, which is never a nice road to walk along due to the sheer volume of people.

Now Google has decided to offer up this route:

Which is actually quite a tempting route, in my infinite wisdom, on the first day I found a route for myself:
