Croydon puddles

Wasn't too bad when I left this morning for a morning's work in Croydon. But as the train neared the station, I could see it was looking very gloomy. And by the time I'd got off the train, it was positively sheeting down. No way an umbrella would stay up, so I basically got totally soaked on the short walk to the building where I was meeting the first of my testers.

Unfortunately, he had put the wrong builidng down in his email to me, so no one had heard of him. Phoned him and he was rather mortified to realise his mistake. Luckily, he was only in the building next door. But it did allow me to get totally soaked once more as I emerged outside again. God I hate Croydon at the best of times - but negotiating the wind tunnel that is Wellesley Road with its mini-motorway cutting the town in two is a fairly ghastly experience.

Managed to find another tester available in the afternoon, so emailed work to say I'd stay in Croydon and work from there.

Calmer by the time I left work. Decided to try the overground route from West Croydon to Highbury and Islington. Knew it would be slow but felt I'd prefer it to the mayhem that is Victoria.

I am so glad not to have to cope with London transport in this weather.
You do have the great ability to capture so much in a few words - like slow v mayhem - perfect!
