I may have miscalculated..

I assumed that by leaving the house at 6:30am, getting the train at 7am, and getting into London at 7:45am, I might miss some of the rush-hour traffic. This was, in fact, not the case.

The situation is compounded further by getting into London at Marylebone - by the time my train gets to me, it's already full of people from Paddington, and none of them get off at Marylebone. So I have to squeeze into an absolutely packed carriage (even right at the end of the train), and wait until we get to Baker Street, at which point a load of people get off, I can re-adjust my position, and then a load of people get on again. And it's full right down to my stop..

I could always walk to Baker Street to avoid the rush, but that would add a good 5/10 minutes to my journey, and I don't know if I can be bothered given that the tube will still be full anyway..

This morning at the bus stop was quite cool though.. There were loads of birds, some sort of swallow - I'm guessing a House Martin. There were a good couple of dozen of them, just flying around, swooping, gliding, just generally having fun.. So that's the second time in two days that I've seen birds that aren't on the "super-common, seen every day" list. Which is nice :o)

So I'm now in the office.. The walk from the tube station to here takes me past several theatres.. Between there and here, I pass the West End productions of Cabaret, The Vortex, God of Carnage, Les Miserables, Spamalot and Blood Brothers.. Not a bad haul, culturally speaking :o)

Anyway, it's getting on for lunchtime, so best GTFO and find some food..

Oh wow. These locations all make sense to me now!

I confess to being horrible 'paddington' traffic when I was there :>
