I very make actual plans for the very simple reason that they so often go wrong. I find it much easier to work things on the cuff and hope that it all comes out ok in the wash. Monday was a prime example of this.
It was my last day on site at Greenwich University and I knew it would be a very easy day, only an hour or two and then I woul be free. So I tried to see if a friend wanted to meet upfor lunch, organised going to t-shirt printers to sort out squad tops and still have time to get back into London to meet up with another friend before she headed back Up North.
That was the plan and it was going wrong before 8.30am…
Having been battling the heavy traffic for the previous week I was pleasently surprised how much easier it was, especially for a Monday. Arrived at the Uni and set up the equipment, hit the ‘ON’ button and nothing. A piece of equipment costing near to twenty thousand pounds and it refuses to turn on.
Three hours of doing nothing while a spare instrument was sent up from The Office meant that I was unable to make lunch and was left with not a lot of spare time to get back home and to the printers before I was supposed to be on a train back to the Capital.
Something I discovered is that traffic through Peckham is worse during the day than it is in the Rush Hour.
However, I did manage to get the squad tops ordered, I did get back into London and I did get to meet up with my friend for drinks. I then missed my train getting home and had to wait at Waterloo.
