The Perils of South Leamington and Buses
This morning I beat the bus up the parade.
I set off from the house 5 minutes before the bus was due to get to the nearest bus stop (St Helen's Road – pretty far South!), and I plodded up Brunswick Street and then up the Parade, going via Tesco where I made a leisurely decision about which fruit juice to buy, where the checkout woman was irritatingly slow counting change… and I still got the bus I would have caught with about 5 minutes to spare. How?! How much time am I missing in bed whilst sitting on the bus that goes no faster than a pedestrian?!
