Thought I’d jump on a train to BLACKHEATH instead of waiting 20 mins on the Woolwich train at Waterloo East.

I missed 2 buses as I walked to the bus stop and then spent 30 minutes standing in the rain waiting for a bus, as every other possible bus came and went – multiple times.

Another “good” idea of mine that wasn’t so great after all.

Patience, I believe, is a virtue. I must learn to be more virtuous.

Wait though, it gets worse…

In total, it took me 4 hours to get home tonight!

After taking what I thought was a quicker route, I ended up, as I said, waiting 30 minutes for a bus which then sat in traffic for what seemed an eternity – decided to get off and walk – then another wait for a second bus after getting soaked in a heavy downpour.


Turns out the Blackwall Tunnel was shut and there was a fire on Woolwich Ferry, so no one was getting anywhere fast.

I may as well get a sleeping bag and sleep under my desk.

Hope you’re having a better evening than that…are you?
