I felt like an intrepid explorer making my way into the office today. Well, kind of. I tried to get a train from Blackheath first, but they were only running one every half hour and the one I was trying to get on (which was delayed) turned up completely full, so I walked down to Lewisham instead, and finally got on the DLR 50 minutes after leaving my house. It was so bitterly cold - I felt a little like I'd been trekking across the frozen wastes of Siberia when I got in the door at work. Well, you know, kind of.
I was determined to make it in because I was due to take some photos of one of our training courses - thankfully I made it in just in time, and think I got a few usable shots. Had a busy day after that - so glad I did make it in, as it was much easier to do stuff in the office.
Spoke to my Mum this morning - the poor thing now has a water infection, so is back in bed again :( Tim texted me at lunchtime to say that some flowers had been delivered for me - turned out they were from my Mum as a thank you for looking after her the other week. Bless her.
Caught the DLR back to Lewisham again this evening, then a bus up the hill to Blackheath. Got in at 7:15pm, wolfed down some dinner and went back out at 8pm to a neigbourhood watch meeting. Pretty pointless, to be honest, but I was glad I made the effort as there were only 6 of us there. At least I helped make up the numbers.
Tim welcomed me back home with a large Bailey's :)
