For goodness sake!!

I woke this morning and nipped to the loo, peeked out of the window (no frost!) and seeing it was 5:32 I nipped back under the duvet for 8 minutes!!

The alarm went off and I crawled from under the duvet, got ready and then opened the blind. You what? SNOW!!! They never forecast that! Now when I say snow it was what 1/2 an inch?? If that!

It was quickly apparent that the roads were unsalted, touch brakes WHOA! I stuck some petrol in and went back home!

I was off to a meeting in Catford today so  instead of  driving to work and going there I thought I'll  go straight from home!

The bus turned up at 6:41 and normally it takes at most 20 minutes to get to the train station. At 8:28!!! I arrived. Luckily at 8:32 I was able to get on to the Stansted Express.

Only to be told "we are sorry for the slow progress of this train, this is due to a slower train in front". Still I got to Liverpool Street 10 minutes later than I hoped and walked quickly to London Bridge Station. The next train to Catford Bridge was at 9:55 so I walked on to the platform and got a cup of tea only to hear

"we apologise for the Cancellation of the 9:55......"

Well at this  point I thought stuff it (or words to that affect) and headed home!!

I have just had a meeting via phone :D

I'm annoyed I never slipped a camera in my pocket as London Bridge is next to Southwark Cathedral but still I was able to get some food in M&S!

Now excuse me I need to warm up.

This country just seems to be unable to cope with any type of adverse weather conditions!!!!I dread to think what would happen if we had a foot of snow as I can remember in the far distant past and yes, we went to school every day!!!!
