Post 1621. Sunday October 22


As I'm pushed for time today I've taken the unprecedented step of revamping a story I wrote a couple of years ago which received just very few hits!


Just two minutes more and I would have caught that bus. I would have made it to the shop before it closed. I'd have bought some delicious wine, a microwave meal and some yummy chocolate then caught the bus home again. Right now I’d be enjoying my feast whilst watching the six-o-clock news.

As it is I’m drinking tepid skimmed milk and eating a tasteless curled up sandwich whilst watching the eight-o-clock news about someone who was running, tripped, fell in front of a bus and ended up in hospital.

Nurse, a bedpan, please!

The RV1 Hybrid bus from Tower Gateway Station to Covent Garden - I used it recently. I'm yet to float down the Thames on the Duck Tours amphibious bus though!
