I had such an irritating journey home yesterday. I had to take four trains instead of my usual two and it took almost double the amount of time to get home as normal. I also finished the book I was reading about 15 minutes into my journey. Grrr… However, I did better than G who also had a terrible journey made worse by someone being taken ill on the train and them then having to wait for an ambulance to arrive before the train could depart. Anyway, perhaps I can beat last year’s highest ever level of tube refunds - £162.

I realised that last year I read 61 books, which is the highest number ever and even included finding time to read War and Peace. Perhaps I need to get out more. I did really enjoy several of them and have found various new authors to read. I have also got better at not persevering with books that I don’t like – so I did actually start more than 61 books, but those are the ones that I completed. I have just started to read The Ragged Trousered Philanthropist, so we’ll see how I get on with that.

I saw this quiz in the London Paper yesterday. Did they actually pay someone to come up with this really astute quiz?

No comment until an official statement is made regarding G moving in


come on, you have to wear down soon?

Kahless - I can be very stubborn. There may be progress soon though...
