(pleas ebear in mind this was typed at 9 pm while sitting in some grotty waiting room. Also bear in mind I left my house at 3 pm, walking into my parents at just gone 11. Not amused!
Can you believe that a two hour journey, maybe three if its busy will have taken me 8 by the time I get home this evening. That's right. 8!!
I am currently sitting in a grim waiting room almost in the middle of nowhere feeling blessed that there are at least other people sitting round waiting and I am not totally alone. I am also annoyed that I have just sat here for ten minutes and typed a really long essay moaning about the trains and public transport then the flipping thing crashed so I lost it all. I can't imagine that my day today can get any more frustrating. First they sold me the wrong ticket. I mean, how can they get away with selling you tickets at one end that are not valid, but then refusing to do anything about it at the other end because you have to go back to the people who sold you the thing to begin with. And another thing, this country is always banging on about people using the public transport, but honestly, is there any motivation for people to? They charge silly amounts of money, trains run late or they don't run at all, stations are disgustingly bad, and when you do manage to get on a train if they are not totally crammed the to roof (yes I have experienced this today and wasn't able to get on schedule train, after trying to get home for five hours) you cant find anywhere to sodding sit. It's a liability I tell you. I am also telling you, that finances permitting next year I am planning to learn to drive so I don't have to endure the world of trains any more. If my friends can do it, then so can I, it cant be that hard can it!?
Before this thing had crashed on me, I wrote a long thing about also being gutted that the meal I had planned with mummy dearest isn't obviously going to happen. We usually take the opportunity of my first night at home visiting to go out for a curry to pig out and catch up on the gossip. My stepdad usually goes out Thursday evenings so we have a girls night, but that wont happen tonight.
Anyway, on to happier things. I am going to visit my darling mummy and stepdad. SO I AM HOLIDAY!! Don't try and email me about anything work related, it shall be ignored. Ok, well that's my attempt to be really strict, but you all know me, so you know if it is an emergency or something important I wont really ignore it, and I will still answer my phone. But I feel like I should say I wont do any work. In fact, that's a lie anyway seeing as I bought my computer with me with the aim of doing lots of course work while I am away. I am going away with a group of people next week, which will be busy and mean that I shall have do some sort of work stuff too, but I will get a chance to go to meeting, wander down the beach, eats lots of nice food and sleep lots. Well, that's the plan for the time being anyway
I am going to stop typing drivel now because I could go on forever and my tapping of the keys is probably doing everyones head in, although they are fairly quiet compared to some.
