I was driving into London today to run a session on social media for some people who work in education. Surprisingly the drive all the way up the M3 was ok, and I made good time for once. I think the session went well, and then I borrowed a hot desk in their office and managed to rip through a large chunk of my to do list.
After a less successful drive back in which I was busting for a wee, I ran in at home, used the loo, and ran out again to go for a walk. I stopped to have a look at the work the gardeners are doing on the front garden and was pleased. I think we've managed to find a half decent contractor for once, and they're making good time.
Then I went for a walk up the road to Portswood, aiming to buy flowers for a friend's birthday. I didn't manage to get any, but I picked up some Christmas presents and a few other bits. It's very helpful that shops open in the evening. I don't know when I would do my shopping if they didn't.
On the way to the shop, I noticed a billboard for a new model of Mercedes taxi. It was quite surprising to see a billboard for this in a city. I wonder how they picked their site?
Once I was back, I started tidying as Tom came home from a church do. We did some tidying together, then I paid for my new car insurance before bed. My stomach still isn't good, so I tried wearing totally unsexy support pants to bed to see if it helped. It did a bit, so I managed to get some sleep after all.
