    Alarm at 6. Short cycle to the station. On train to East Croydon now.

    Not too bad so far, but unless I start to get to bed earlier this is going to do me in.

    Just after I posted this, a million people got on. Now at East Croydon, where I have had to buy breakfast and there are no bins, connection to Tulse Hill is delayed. :(

    (((Onket))) IME commuting is very much a state of mind. Not that you'll ever really enjoy it, but it will become less grim. At least you're tall enough not to get your nose jammed in somebody's armpit.

    I am very lazy, and I pick up someone on the way in. (we could both walk I guess) It's only about 2 miles.

    I agree.

    But I used to be able to cycle 20 mins to work, for free. It's a bit of a change.

    Got in at 10 past 9, so not too bad. I will be knackered by Thursday, though, and I will need to start making some breakfast sandwiches for the journey, or to eat while waiting at East Croydon. Upper Crust is a bit pricey, plus they don't do the lasagne sandwiches Badgers is going to make me.
